Automation involves taking everyday tasks and streamlining them by taking what would normally be done manually and making it automatic. Your goal for the Automation Contest is to do just that. Automate life in some way, big or small. As long as you are taking something that would normally be manual and transforming it to work with the age of automation, it fits.
The most awesome automation projects will win a fun kit from Pozyx including their Developer, Ready to Range, and Ready to Localize kits. There is also a special Judges’ prize for the Best Home Automation project. Whatever it is you want to make, it is time to take it and automate it.
Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Aug 21, 2017 and Oct 16, 2017 (11:59pm PT).
Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Automation Contest 2017. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.
Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
