Automate your home using the powerful Arduino platformAbout This BookInterface home automation components with ArduinoAutomate your projects to communicate wirelessly using XBee, Bluetooth and WiFiBuild seven exciting, instruction-based home automation projects with Arduino in no timeWho This Book Is ForIf you want to build your own home automation systems wirelessly using the Arduino platform, this is the book for you. You will need to have some basic experience in Arduino and general programming languages, such as C and C++ to understand the projects in this book.What You Will LearnConnect home automation sensors to the Arduino platformUse the XBee technology to build low-power wireless motion sensorsInterface a relay with Arduino to control devices in your homeUtilize Wi-Fi to control a lamp remotelyEmploy Bluetoothand Arduino to measure the temperature remotelySend energy consumption data to the cloudHack an existing home automation device using ArduinoIn DetailThe Arduino platform is used by more than one million people around the world to prototype electronic systems. It is the perfect platform to use to build home automation systems, as it allows you to build your own motion sensors, control lamps remotely, and control preexisting home automation devices. The Arduino platform also allows you to build wireless home automation systems using well-known technologies such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.This book shows you how to use the Arduino tiny microboard to live like a king. The book covers several projects you can perform using the Arduino platform. The first few projects comprise the basics of home automation, such as building a wireless motion sensor, controlling a lamp remotely, and building a Bluetooth temperature sensor. Then, this book dives into the Internet of Things, helping you get a clear understanding of how to send measured data to the cloud. The book will wrap up by showing you how to communicate and control an existing device and build your own home automation system.
