draw.io Floorplan stencils – draw.io

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/20

I needed a way to draw floor plans.

PowerPoint solutions were to cumbersome, but then I remembered draw.io: it has [WayBack] draw.io Floorplan stencils – draw.io

Have you tried the floorplan stencils in draw.io? You can open the library directly by using the libs parameter, www.draw.io/?libs=floorplan. Or, you can enable them in your library section by clicking “more shapes” (bottom right) and ticking “floorplans”, then apply:

I configured draw.io to show measurements in points, then took 100 points per meter as scale.

At first I most of my measurements were wrong because the I thought the “fat” grid lines were every 50 points. They are not:

  • Light grid lines are 10 points
  • Fat grid lines are 40 points
  • Ruler has small marks every 10 points
  • Ruler has large marks every 50 points
  • Ruler has numbers every 100 points

How confusing!

Reminder to self: get less dependent on the various clouds

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/04

For my link archive: [WayBack] Grote Google-storing trof Gmail, YouTube en diensten van derden – IT Pro – Nieuws – Tweakers.

It has some interesting tips for IoT video doorbell products that are less depending on single-choice clouds:

Er bestaan er minimaal eentje; smart deurbel met camera en evt speaker, eigen intern netwerk, compatible met SIP (en video), zelf verantwoordelijk voor opnamen, etc. Enige nadeel is dan wel de prijs, het is een Duits kwaliteitsproduct, dus reken rond de 350 euro voor het absolute basismodel. Doorbird heet het; oa te koop bij Robbshop en CoolBlue of direct bij de fabiraknt’s website.

 

Je moet je huis flink geautomatiseerd hebben wil je echt nut van die api willen hebben.

als je alles zelf in de hand wil hebben doe je dat ook. Je zorgt er zelf voor dat je webinterface via een externe URL bereikbaar is en dan is het enkel je eigen hardware en internetverbindingen die als SPOF dienen en je kan dan ook makkelijker van solution-provider wisselen zonder vast te zitten.

 

wellicht is dit een oplossing voor jou?
