New hobby project: Home automation

Blogged by Twan as Daily life,Home automation — Twan Sat 22 Jan 2011 12:55 pm

ai ai ai (as they sometimes say here in swiss german), last post was in June 2010. I think I already opened a lot of posts here with ‘time for an update’. It’s pretty difficult to come up with something interesting every time. But since I have a new hobby project, I think I can update this blog on a more regular basis.

So what’s new? Well, I already had the idea for a long time that when I have a house/appartment it should be stuffed technological gadgets that make the house/appartment into a smart home. Home automation is not so futuristic anymore as it was when I visited the house of the future in the early ninetees. Now 20 years laters, I have my own appartment (well, rental) and I’m very interested in developing my own home automation system.

I’m ofcourse not the only one that has this idea. You can find home automation hobby projects all over te world. There are also a number of commercial systems available. However, I don’t want an off the shelf system, but play around with sensors, microcontrollers and write my own interface.
