Smart Home review It’s been a few months since I replaced every switch in the…

For next year’s home fiddling project and a Somfy RTS hack that is not so expensive/clunky as the Somfy URTSI II.

I use openHAB and tasker as open source center of my home-automation. Use its bindings to knx, zwave, enocean, philipsTV, fritzbox, ifttt and network-pcs to control rollershutter, lights, multimedia, security etc.

It’s not app vs. wall-switches, thats interesting but the situative automatisation.

  • a wall switch near my bed to switch off everything in the house
  • automated rollershutter-settings if tv is switched on for not to be blinded
  • if it’s ringing at the door i can open it from my Moto 360
  • wheather-dependent automated control of my blinds saved me 500,- electricity-costs
  • led-signaling if any window is opened
  • jalousie and light-scenes instead of tons of wall-switches
  • sunlight dependent control of decorative lights in the house
  • remotecontrollabe per app, partial even per voice (“OK Google, shadow west facade”)
  • combination with nfc-tags: to enable a garden powersocket just hold your phone near to it
  • batteryless wireless enocean-wall-switches are perfect for kids loft bed or to stick it under the terrace-table

and much much more…
