I’m investigating ways how I could replace my current Raspberry PI setup. And Spark looks like an awesome option, but I don’t understand it enought (yet). Let me explain the situation:
Currently I’m working on a ‘smart home project for the elderly’ for my school. I’m using a raspberry PI kissmet and nodeJS I can achieve what I need, only it’s overkill.
Basically, I’m monitoring WIFI connections with kissmet that writes to a log file, with nodeJS I monitor this file and when this file changes it sends this data to my database. I was wondering if Spark could replace this existing setup.
What I would need in an ideal situation is:
- Someone connects to Spark first time (no actions are needed) with mobile phone;
- When someone returns, phone automatically reconnects to Spark. Spark produces some information about this connection (MAC adress or name of device) and forwards this information to an external database.
Is this something Spark could do?
