    There’s one major drawback though. If i understand correctly it only works with O N E !!! phone brand.

    Guys.. They are at an Expo. So, yes, they show products. Maybe the Ford AD is a little bit much? Could be. But, they are there to show new products and give information about it. So, i don’t have a problem with that.

    It sounded like she called it a wiimote

    I think Plugwise is a better product by the looks of things…

    Nice one! I wonder if you can setup the motion sensor to alert you if it triggers when you’re away from home. That could give you a chance to take some kind of action, call the cops or something.

    Nice ‘infomercial"…Belkin is grateful.

    @psychovez What did you use? Seems interesting! Could you give some infos ?



  12. psychovez on December 9, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    @itTutorials4You I used a Rabbit 4000 microcontroller which has a RJ-45 port on it, with some custom built light switches that activate from a 5V output of the controller. All the switches use a CAT-3 input which is what I use to hook them up to the controller from anywhere’s in the house. The coffee machine was a project for class so it’s slightly more involved (bunch of sensors and stuff). Then it’s just a matter of writing apps (Linux and Android) to interface it all.

    Its all about x-10! I still have about 30 x-10 modules… they all work, and theres an app for that.

    Meh, doesn’t beat the system I built which controls my light switches in my apartment and my coffee machine from the CLI or my smartphone…
