My Home Automation Remote!
Below you will find my latest invention! (Photos below) It’s a touch screen remote for my house!
So what does it do and how does it work?
It controls the motion detection settings on my 4 Foscam IP cameras … so when I leave the house I can quickly enable motion detection on all my cameras without having to connect to each individual camera over my iPhone or computer!… what else does it do? it Switches on my lights using 315MHz and the VirtualWire Library!
I use ethernet on the Ethermega with the Webclient to send HTTP GET commands to the Foscam IP cameras depending on the buttons pressed in the menu! As for the lights… I have used the learning feature of the Codec-Adaptive Wireless Relay with the VirtualWire Library.
I have already started to work on the Infrared part to control my cinema system in the living room… which I will update and share the code once I have it working! In the meantime feel free to check out the code below & a video of it in action!
An old RF power switch which i used for the casemod.
Above i have case-modded 315Mhz Adaptive Relay & a small 12v powersupply.
