Re: Ep 1: Home Automation System Architecture

hi Manoj, > [*] Can the circuit be designed without removing the current switches. > ( As the switches are already installed and would act redundant) Probably, but you'd need to leave the current switches "on" for the automation to function.

Re: Has anyone ever actually used this board?

hi All, A number of people at the Melbourne HackerSpace (http://hackmelbourne.org) are working on Android / Arduino projects using the USBDroid, including myself. We do have end-to-end software working with the USBDroid. To build a complete application in this area involves several learning curves, ...

Re: Congratulations!

hi All, Having a Freetronics community to share projects / ideas and provide self-help above and beyond what Freetronics have time to do (or for a broader community perspective) ... will be a good thing for all users of Freetronics gear. There is a lot of detailed documentation, driver code and appl...
