Home automation / Domotica

  • Are there dojo’s that have experience with domotica? I’m very curious to know about what you did and how you set it up.

    I’m thinking IFTTT, Philips HUE, WeDo, etc.

    I’d be interested too, though as someone who plays around with this stuff a little in my personal life. However, I’d reckon it’s a bit too pricy to really get into en masse. With that in mind:

    You could get the attendees to figure out all the logic for a system using some sort of abstraction (maybe a library of functions you’d written to talk to sensors, LEDs, and other components) and something like a Raspberry Pi or Arduino and some sensors and LEDs. Then you could have a small set of the high-end hardware that they could apply the same scripts to, with a different library file that switches in the controls for the more serious kit into the same logic they figured out on the simpler (and more affordable) equipment.
