Chapter 1. Getting Started with Raspberry Pi Zero

Before building several projects for a home security system and the control of domestic appliances by electronically controlled systems, in this chapter, we're going to go into an initial configuration and prepare our Raspberry Pi Zero to work in a network, so you can use it for all the projects we will see in this book.

Before we go through the projects, build our network with the devices, and connect our sensor to the boards, it's important to understand the configuration of the Raspberry Pi. The main idea of this chapter is to explain how to set up your Raspberry Pi Zero; we will cover the following topics:

  • Setting up Raspberry Pi Zero

  • Preparing the SD card

  • Installing the Raspbian operating system

  • Configuring your Raspberry Pi Zero with a serial console cable

  • Accessing the network remotely

  • Accessing via remote desktop

  • Configuring a web server
