Future posts will provide build instructions to create you own DIYHAS solution. The servers are all Raspberry Pi devices with applications written in Python 3 and the help from lots of great open source code. I’m planning to push all of my python source to github to coincide with posts.
Welcome to my new home automation project site!
For the past four years I’ve been in a self-taught program to learn python, Raspberry Pi administration, the Internet of Things and basic digital electronics. Its really been an immersed in prototyping, discovery and testing a variety of solutions with a steep learning curve. Its been a blast!
I’m ready to start version 2.0 of my do it yourself home automation system. Over the next couple of months I will post entries on how to build a custom home automation system with security, environment monitoring, video surveillance, lighting controls, Alexa integration and more. Please stay tuned.
