Smart home

My wonderful electronic engineer husband is developing a unique home automation system for the house. Each light and light switch will be connected to a micro controller. The micro controller will enable us to use any switch to put on any light and change the switches according to whim.  A switch at the front door or next to the bed can switch off all the lights at once. Motion sensors will be allocated to certain lights switching them on automatically when you move into a room, for example illuminating the outside stairs when you arrive home.

Additional software development will allow us to control the system with a cell phone to switch lights off remotely whilst not at home.

In future the irrigation system will also be connected to the micro controller and we will be able to water the garden while on holiday!
