Tasks set by the client in the project
The initial task was to control lighting and the electronic door latch using the smartphone. Then the control of the intercom (with the function of switching-off the sounds of TV set and PC when the intercom rings), TV set, computer media server (XBMC), RGB LEDs. It was also necessary to realize the hidden ip-surveillance in the hall and the sitting room with the capability of remote control. In the nearest future we plan to make the air conditioner, electric fire place and blinds control.
Automation of the small 2-room apartment with the total area of 43 m².
Difficulties you faced while working on the project
We decided not to buy special equipment for intercom signal control, that’s why we used self-made budget option using the chip based on operational amplifiers.
