Smart Home Guru – Voice Control Your Lights
n late 2006, I decided to create a home automation system with the stated goal of making it smart enough that it would eventually come to life and attempt to kill me. While the system hasn’t quite reached HAL strength, it does do some cool stuff, and home automation technology has come a long way since I got started. The main systems controlled by home automation are security, lighting, HVAC and outdoor sprinkler systems. In addition, there are many other uses for home automation, including the use of robots for interior cleaning, pool maintenance and exterior landscaping. In terms of DIY home automation, home entertainment and home lighting are two systems that can be quite easily configured without professional training or expert knowledge.
