Current Power usage

How  Charts

A very nice feature of our smart meter is that it also sends detailed information about the current power usage to my system - every 10 seconds.

Pressure Sensor (ZigBee)


Since February 2010 a wireless pressure sensor is used to measure the pressure. This sensor is a DIY project where i combined an Arduino-like JeeNode  and XBee modules  to create my first self made, battery powered sensor.

User Interfaces


Just like the rest of the software of my Domotica system, i also created my own User Interfaces: a Touchscreen, a Philips Pronto TSU9600 and a Apple iPod Touch can all be used to control our house. And with this website of course :-)
