Arduino Smart Home Automation doesn't show you how to build a dishwashing robot or how to make your car fly. Instead it shows you how to build a smart home infrastructure that you can use as a foundation for your own smarter home ideas. Home automation may trigger images of the Jetsons, of hover cars, of robots who will do the dishes -- fun but ultimately unrealistic images. However, "Smarter home" is a bit different from the old idea of home automation: this is a home that understands you. That understands that you need to wake up a bit earlier when it's raining, and that you want the fan to kick on automatically when the room gets a little stuffy. That it would be nice if your entire home could sense you coming and make you feel welcome (without blinding your neighbors every time someone passes your house). This book gives you a headstart on the foundation for implementing great ideas like these: * Custom media center remote * Heating and cooling sensing and controls * Home information system * Smart and innovative hallway lighting * Powering your home with solar, water, and even people power * Making your home automation ergonomic, beautiful, and even invisible
