Dianemo-Rpi2 - the lowest cost Core available today
A New Era in Smart Home Technology
One of the the most exciting advantages of the Raspberry Pi2 (Rpi2) board is its low cost & small size. If you've been thinking of 'building' your own Core or have always wanted a 2nd Core to just play around with, or prototype with then the Rpi2 + Dianemo-Rpi2 license is the ideal way to do that. In fact it is the lowest cost Core/NC that is available today (even including the Dianemo-Rpi2 license)
You can see the Press launch of Rpi2 and some early reviews of the new board here;http://www.raspberrypi.org/taps-monitor-is-this-thing-on/
So why would you want a Dianemo-Rpi2? Maybe to run Dianemo-Rpi2 alongside your existing LinuxMCE Core or Dianemo NC if you have one - no need to disturb them at all. Here is what our users are telling us they plan to do with their Dianemo-Rpi2;
- Have you wanted a Core for ages? Now you can for a total cost of less than $150 USD
- Always wanted a 2nd Core to prototype projects on? Dianemo-Rpi2 is ideal.
- Always wanted to build a low cost Core for a family member? Dianemo-Rpi2 is ideal.
- Always wanted a Core for your Daughter/Son to learn & experiment with? Dianemo-Rpi2 is ideal
- Got an idea for a Smart Home project you want to prototype? Dianemo-Rpi2 is ideal
- Is there a Rpi hardware project you want to integrate? Dianemo-Rpi2 is ideal
Of course the new Rpi2 offers an enormous increase in performance with it's 4x 900mhz ARMv7 cores and 1gb RAM this gives the new board about a 6x performance boost overall compared to the Rpi B+ (according to the Raspberry Pi Foundation). This page has a lot of posts & tweets from ordinary Rpi2 users who have been running their own benchmark test on the board too;http://www.raspberrypi.org/benchmarking-raspberry-pi-2/
The Rpi2 is incredibly affordable so no one can complain about the hardware costs - $35 USD for the Rpi2. Its so small that it can be hidden away almost anywhere you have a power outlet - no one can complain about it taking up half the lounge! Its silent too so no one will complain about the annoying buzz of its cooling fan. Its super low energy too, using less than 5w in its basic configuration - so no complaints there either.
Dianemo-Rpi2 is the perfect 'invisible' Smart Home project that you can have up and running for a fraction of what a PC based system would cost. Simply take advantage of our ARM only Dianemo-Rpi2 license for $99 USD now and you will have the lowest cost Core possible today.
