Thinking about a domotica solution I have quite some whishes. Not all of them are real domotica but more about sensing, knowing and controlling things in and around the house. Browsing the internet my ideas are nothing new and there are a lot of people who work on the same goals. Luckely they are, that means I don’t have to learn everything from scratch. Reading all pages and problems I’m glad there are more people trying to accomplisch (parts of) the things I want to realize. If they weren’t I think I would never succeed!

Part of the ‘domotica’ wishlist:
– controlling KAKU devices
– controlling other 433Mhz switches
– reading my Balance Meteo Weather station sensor
– logging  temperature  inside the houde
– logging motion with PIR sensors
– Read / write remote control IR  signals (and send other triggers like KAKU commands)
– log energy consumption
– make lighting schemas
– control RGB LED stripes
– log VOIP caller IDs
– log doorbell rings
– make web-/securitycam photos on pre-defined events
– log humidity
– log pressure
– log light intensity

All this information must be stored in a database and privately accessible for me. I want to be able to access the information and send commands through a web-based solution. This will enable mobile access as well.

As you can see this is nothing special and new. Some people already have a website devoted to the same goals, take a look at: Bwired.nl and hekkers.net.

Next an example sketch …
