Homemade House Automation!!!

This is always been one of dreams! And today this dream can come true!

Since last June I have changed job role and passed from System Administration, a job that I’ve done form about 10 years, and have become a Technical Support Engineer in a company that is a leader in software for industry automation. So now I have a better view on how to do it!

Like in Bill Gates’ “The Road ahead” I’ve always thought to my house to be “intelligent” and to easy my daily tasks and ease the way I live in house so let’s call it a “bidirectional understanding”.

It’s not only about motion sensors  that can switch lights on or off, it’s not about the music to “follow” me when changing rooms, it’s a matter of an intelligent house and also intelligent house management that in the end means : cost reduction.

I’m actually searching for documents on open systems because home automation is already present in the market but all systems that I’ve seen are “closed” that means that they rely on ther own protocols and devices. What I’m looking for is instead a standard that allows me to use different devices from different vendors that can talk together.

I’ll continue to search andreport on this blog my findings…stay tuned!
