re: Do you have any home automation projects in the works? VIEW POST


I do a lot of temperature/humidity/power monitoring with Raspberry Pi and other linux boxes. Control is dicey, my big question is “ what is the fallback when it fails and I’m away? “. You would not belive the number of times I’ve gotten the “There’s no {Water, Power, Internet, etc}!!!” call from my wife. Just set the probability of something failing to 100% and see if it’s survivable. Monitoring good, control bad. 🙈 Cloud services will fail at random and when the company goes out of business, I know folks who can’t turn their lights on without a 15-year old X-10 master control box. 🤪
