Cliff Dive

Taking the plunge from the south cliffs on Hawaii’s southern-most island… basically jumping off the bottom of the USA. The stuff at the end was the camera falling, I dropped it (and obviously recovered it). It was supposedly water-proof to 31 feet (but wasn’t).

HomeRemote V1.0 – Android and iPhone Apps Launched!

Over the last few months, I’ve gotten several requests to launch an iPhone version of the HomeRemote app which will connect to your existing Arduino server for controlling outlets and speakers. If you implemented this project already, you can just grab the new app(s) for a complete graphical redesign and more powerful settings.

Google Play
Apple iTunes

AndroidiPhone

Key features of HomeRemote are:
- Control speaker zones through Arduino and Relay
- Control outlets using 315MHz RF Outlet modules

Controlling speakers and/or outlets requires an Arduino running the open source 33Snowflakes automation server.

Additional features include renaming Zones with a long press on any Zone name, and disabling unused Zones or unused modules from the Settings screen.

As before, the server and HomeRemote app code (built on Phonegap) will remain open source under the MIT License here on Bitbucket.

Please report any bugs to the Bitbucket page issue tracker.

Arduino Home Automation Docs Updated

I’ve made a major revision to the documentation for HomeRemote Home Automation over at Bitbucket, with changes for the Speaker Zone control and Outlet control sections.

There have been no functional changes to the web server code. I hope that the documentation changes (including diagrams) make it much easier for new users to get started with this project.

Take a look and let me know what you think!

Just as a teaser, check out the new App screenshot in the documentation. This is in anticipation of releasing completely new versions of the remote control App. They will be available soon on the iPhone and Android app stores simultaneously, and the announcement is currently pending Apple’s review/approval process.
