Smart phones. Smart cars. Smart homes. We built a home automation device based on Raspberry Pi and Arduino. It can be controlled via the Internet with any phone, tablet or computer. The device is connected to the existing home electricity architecture rather than requiring to change every electronic appliance at home.
We wanted this to be usable by the whole family; so we built multiple user-password accesses and responsive design available over the Internet on the home network.
The home automation device can currently control the garage, main gates, lighting and security. It also shows the temperature in the house.
The future is here. We want our home automation device to be able to automatically open the curtains in the morning, play music.. and make coffee perhaps.
