You’ve heard of smart home, right? I mean, it’s 2019. It’s time to do it. I’m all in, and I hope you are too, because it’s about frickin time. I have a few ideas that I want to bring to life, and maybe you have some to share too. Let me know in the comments!

Smart Light Switch

Yeah I get it, they make these. I want to make one that is:

  • WiFi or RF Serial with network connected main hub
  • Touch screen or capacitive button with touch dimmer and LCD displaying dim percent
  • 3D printed box to hold the components
  • Designed for regular rectangular opening face plate to cover

The idea is that I’m sick of running around turning off lights, I want to say I’m leaving or it’s bed time – and shut the house off. I don’t want plain looking switches like those that exist though, it’s 2019 so let’s act like it is.

What parts do we need to cram in there?

I’ll keep adding to this as I make progress as well, let me know if you have any ideas or creations of your own!
