For those the next hour I'm going to setup guest access to my HA system for those that want to have a look. It'll be reasonably locked down but enough for you to have a look around.

View -> Device Status -> Ground Floor should work for those who can't resist the urge to turn stuff on/off

Shimmer: ....should work for those who can't resist the urge to turn stuff on/off


Have to admit I was one of those people foot-in-mouth have never seen a live setup before so was great to have a play around
Was really surprised to see the huge list of devices/things you can monitor and control from one place
Would hate to think how long it would of taken to get everything set up

Its taking 2-3 seconds to respond to most things, and the page took so long to load I didnt even know that anything was happening. Is that just because of high load with everyone hitting it?

yeah alas tad busier than normal and appears there are a whole lot more people that browse this part of the forums than I realised. Probably could have helped myself posting the http link instead of https as well.

Shutting it down now. Hopefully of interest to some. Apologies she was a bit slow for some of you.

And to the person who got the squeezebox in the fomal lounge going... yep it worked and the volume went up. Made the wife jump.

To be honest other than setting up stuff I don't generally use the Web interface but it's the only thing I can really show (and I know its fun to be able to turn something on/off in another part of the country). The web interface isn't a primary control, it's more your admin interface where it doesn't need to look pretty. The bulk of everything is event driven, a small amount using voice recognition and then finally for a UI it's controlled via custom touchscreen design that will run on Windows/Android/iPad&iPhone

The devices set themselves up when you pair them to your network, so that parts not so hard. It's the designing the events that trigger them (which unfortunately I couldn't expose access to for you without opening up too much) and then understanding your familys patterns/routines to match. When it works you don't even notice it stuff just happens. Getting there can involve evil glares when the lights go off at the wrong time, or the tv goes off. Voice Recognition is even worse until you can tune it to a point where false positives are the exception. Then when you've spent your time doing that your focus moves to how do you integrate different technologies that weren't necessarily designed to be integrated.

Hours of fun.

I always feel like a bit of a dick making videos but I put together a few clips of what some of the functions look like from my place for another forum that maybe of interest.

Damn, missed it!


EDIT: Just watched your video; awesome!  I see you are using HomeSeer. It looks much, much nicer than OpenHab and most of the open source ones. I prefer systems that look like a dashboard as opposed to a simple lists like OpenHab does.

Very, very cool and quite inspiring.
