Autonome is an app for keeping an eye on something. I developed this program in the intention of watching a secondary residence.
Switch on a Raspberry Pi at defined times which launches Autonome to do different tasks like capturing photo, raise the temperature. Then, these data are uploaded to a server and could be exposed on a website.
My system works with a solar panel, battery, 3G key and a Raspberry Pi.
How does it work?
- Install node (>=12) on your system.
- Download the autonome.js file: releases
- Create your configuration file in json. You can find examples.
- Execute autonome.js with the configuration file like this:
node ./autonome.js /path/to/config.json
