How to build your own Smart House


25th November, 16:20-16:50

Each of us is searching for his specific house to have better comfort, ease of control, security, lifestyle personalization and convenience at all times. Having all of these automated can be each person's dream but now this can be achieved easily with the help of some integrated circuits.

I will show how you can create your own Smart Home and how to connect all the devices and appliances in your home so they can communicate with each other and then with you. You will see how you can create an online application that interacts with your home and assist you with several tasks like:

  • Automatic/manual irrigation system with rain sensor, weather prediction, two sources of water and remote control, with a second level of protection for overrunning
  • Surveillance system with real-time digital storage on Google Drive (unlimited)
  • Automatic/manual or remote control of lighting system indoor and/or outdoor
  • Interactive and remote controlled temperature in different areas being able to have different temperatures
  • Remote control front yard gate and/or garage door
  • Remote control snow melting system
  • Total off for heating system when you are on holiday
  • Many other systems

I’ve started to work in software industry about 11 years ago looking for new challenges every day and I’m still doing that.
I want to be always up to date with new technologies and scientific breakthroughs.
The passion for robotics and custom electronic devices was always inside me but too few times I had the chance to really implement something useful. Now I can finally feed this passion as well.
I never take “can’t be done” as an answer. In my philosophy anything is possible it’s just a matter of time.
My dream is to be able to contribute to make the world a better place.
