I may be moving into a house that we are going to kind of rent-to-own from my parents soon and I’ve always wanted to get into home automation. I’ve kind of tinkered with some Arduino projects here and there but nothing crazy so there’s going to be alot of learning happening. I just backed a project for a “pocket computer” (don’t really know how else to put it) that’s going to end up as the controller PC for all the sensors and such. I’m curious if there is anyone else that has done any work in home automation as a hobby with open source hardware/software.
Here is the board I backed on Kickstarter
The software I’ll probably use to control all the stuffs so I can work it from my phone or small touchscreens around the house
A general idea of how I’m probably going to implement it (with less wirelessness…ness. More wireful)
Anyone else interested in this kind of thing?
