AnyDesk in Raspberry PI

AnyDesk

As we know the Raspberry PI is widely used in various sector like education, IOT, security, hardware control etc. To control the raspberry pi remotely we need the remote access software. For that basically there are two software used. TeamViewer and AnyDesk

Go to the download page

https://anydesk.com/en/downloads/raspberry-pi

or

Download AnyDesk

https://download.anydesk.com/rpi/anydesk_5.5.5-1_armhf.deb?_ga=2.225231762.900182093.1596982124-1692870924.1596982124

In this software once you set the password you can access it from anywhere in the world. Suppose you have lots of device based on raspberry pi and you need to control them or need to show anything in that particular device then you have to call the user to allow the remote access in AnyDesk software.

Now the solution is to set password for the software. Once you set the password, you can access the raspberry pi anywhere from the world. You have to enter password at host side and no need to allow from remote or client side.

Raspberry Pi interfacing with 16×2 & 20×4 LCD

This tutorial will shows how to interfacing 16×2 and 20×2 LCD with Raspberry Pi. The code is written in Python language.

The 16×2 lcd has 16 pins, 16 characters and 2 lines and the 20×4 lcd has 16 pins, 20 characters and 4 lines.

Hardware to be used:

  • Raspberry PI 3B +
  • 16 GB SD Memory card with Raspbian operating system
  • 16×2 LCD 
  • 20×4 LCD
  • 20×2 FRC cable 9″
  • HDMI Monitor with HDMI Cable and Power Cable
