Home automation has been an interest of mine for a long time. There is a bunch of bad technology in the marketplace and the products are too expensive so I decided to build my own.
I use a netduino microcontroller running C# code with the .net micro framework to control a squirt gun, open my garage, irrigate my garden and turn on my gas fireplace.
A Microsoft Kinect is used to enable you to point to where you want to spray the hose. The speech recognition features of the Kinect are used so that voice commands can open the garage or turn on the fireplace.
An article and the source code for the netduino .net micro framework projects can be found on The Code Project: http://www.codeproject.com/Artic...
My project has been focused on Microsoft's Channel 9 Coding4Fun website: http://channel9.msdn.com/coding4...
