Wicked Wireless Since being grounded without the capability of operating EnOcean Sensors at 868MHz I've had to resort to other methods. I had a cheapo 433.92MHz Transmitter and Receiver in the lab that had never been used so I hooked it up to see if it was a suitable for the task or not. The maximum power limit I can use is 25mW and the transmitter has an output of 10mW. One immediate limitation is that this configuration is single direction simplex communication link so there is no feed ba ...

In this post I will explain how the Cam-e-lot sensor sends the level of light in the room to the OpenHAB system. There two steps involved: calculate the level and light from the image captured by the RaspiCam and send the value to OpenHAB by means of the enOcean transceiver.   Determine level of light in the room Thanks to the OpenCV library, this task can be accomplished quite easily. The key of the problem is to use the proper color space. The RaspiCam saves images using the widely-used R ...

ForewordAs I (might) have mentioned before, the initial reason why I got into home automation was the house my dad built in the middle of nowhere. The current system is based heavily on 1-Wire, which is pretty much a wired equivalent for EnOcean standard. 1-Wire bus uses only two wires and each device has an unique address, much like EnOcean. My goal for the design is to create an add-on for the Raspberry Pi, which will include all the stuff needed for the current system, with the addition of ...

Being on a business trip (overseas even) means that progress has been really slow. The workdays are longer, I have no hardware with me (don't dare to get that through US immigrations...) and the evenings are shorter. So I did some work on the Android application. To use my OpenHAB client library, it needed to be put into a Maven repository (since Android Studio tries to look up all the dependencies from there) which was not too complicated due to the Maven-Ant-tasks. That being done, I looked i ...

I've been working on the laundry room portion of my home automation system.  I've worked out the OpenHAB automation portion.  I've changed the way I've been doing alarms and light indicators from my previous demos, so I thought others might be interested in seeing these parts.   Here's a graphic of what the screen looks like.       For custom icons, I found out how to do them from an OpenHAB forum member.  For the item definition, I'm defining a switch item ...
You may have wondered about the lack of updates on my security system for the Forget Me Not challenge. I apologise for this, but want to provide some explanation.   Life has certainly been conspiring against me for this challenge. First I had my car broken into and my laptop stolen. Then I had my fair share of shipping delays and lost parcels. And then recently a close friend passed away suddenly. With all the events it's been difficult to make headway and also to keep up momentum.   ...
First sorry I've not been about. Work and family commitments have been killing most of my time :-(   So what have I been up to?

They are an SPI driven module and I thought I would e ...

Let me start with asking you a question. How many of you uses facebook messenger in your smart phone? Most of you will. But how many of you know that you are getting your notifications through MQTT protocol? Probably not many. I came to know it just a few days ago. Why FB is using MQTT in their messenger? Now a days, if you go to any IoT related sites, you willl be seeing this term MQTT quite often. It seems like MQTT is the HTTP of IoT age. But then I asked a question myself -- why should I cho ...
Moving Target I've just found out that a runtime version of OpenHAB has just been released. It is now 1.5.1 (from 1.3.1).   I have loaded it with the demonstration configuration and it works but I have found it to be a little slow on the Raspberry Pi. Slow enough at times to lock up a connected client's web browser (IE11).   I received word from Bryan from EnOcean that an EOP 350 with TCM320 module can emulate an EnOcean Pi gateway (with TCM310) with the right firmware loaded.

I've started work on a dog GPS prototype, but don't have anything to show yet.  The idea is to transmit the dog GPS location to OpenHAB, and have OpenHAB evaluate the coordinates.  If the coordinates are outside the yard, then play an audio alarm inside the house to let the people know the dog has wondered off.   I'd also like to do some physical computing by using an arrow mounted on a 360 servo to point to the direction of the dog.  This "dog pointer" would let you know ...

This has two advantages. All the local traffic stays local. This means that my home automation system will never be responsible for excessive internet tra ...

Here's Something to CRO About!  I've taken delivery of a brand new Tektronix TBS1052-EDU and it is markedly different to its forebear the TBS1062.

Taking a closer look at ...
