Project !AH HA!
!Automate House Home Automated!
Planning phase. Once I've decided on what makes sense and what is ergonomic I am going to set dates/plans sectionally for my property and decide what makes sense in terms of an order.
Phase 1 - Design
Ideas for automation
Sensor to tell opened/closed
Entry onto property
Take picture when sensor tripped?
How many people come to my house in a week?
Reminder + automation of cleaning?
Level of Water
Not plausible with Cistern --> must look into capturing rain water for this task.
Barometer, etc. (To feed Indoor automation(clothes to wear))
Is it lit?
What's the level of water atm?
Whats the level of Propane atm?
How full is the septic bed?
What time do I put it out and what time do they come?
Motion Sensor on lip of bin.
What weeks have the heaviest garbage?
What do I need to measure in terms of resources - length of grass, etc.
I need to get a sprinkler system as I installed them for a couple of summers. I just need to figure out an appropriate water source.
I purchased the Phillip Hues Starter Kit(A19 Ambience) and have started to tinker with it
Purchased Two Phillip Hues - Non Ambience
Combo deal with Google home so I bought another Phillip Hues Starter Kit(A19 Ambience) but this one is V3(richer colors).
Interfaced with Spotify, Netflix, Phillips Hue and chrome cast
