Intro: Another Home Automation Project With PcDuino
The original project is posted at: http://pcduino.com/forum/index.php?topic=4299.0
pcDuino running a Python back end. I use SQLite for the data storage, CherryPy for the web server, pySerial and an XBee library to talk to the ZigBee coordinator which is an XBee, and finally I used APScheduler for the scheduling portion.
Currently I have three nodes. The first two nodes are Iris Smart Plugs from Lowes,
The third node is for garage door monitoring and control.
Step 1: Garage Door Monitoring and Control.
Step 2: The Garage Door State
The garage door state is determined using a Hall effect sensor with two ceramic magnets attached to the door itself.
