Home automation and sensors
         Quantify Self meetup, Combinat56, Munich 2012.05.10 by Janis Alnis


• Home automation becomes popular thanks to Internet.
• Below my mentors house in Zurich.
• Webcam, control of lights , window jalousie via iPhone.
• Professional systems KNX and X10 are expensive.
How it started
Online real-time Geiger counter
to monitor radioactivity in air

Live near Garching Forschungsreaktor
Assembled 2 weeks before Fukushima




                                                      Fukushima 11 March


   • Geiger tube clicks are counted by Arduino microcontroller
   • USB connection with Linux PC webserver that makes graphs
   • No effect of Fukushima. Increased radiation during rain observed. That is normal effect.
   • Wrote a description at Instructables.com
Android phone cam as radiation detector




                                 Natural radiation:

                                 • background radiation

                                 • flights in airplanes

                                 • Potassium 40K
                                 KNO3 fertilizer, Pokelsaltz
                                 bananas
Low cost, low power consumption Linux boards

•   Every board has some compatibility problems.
•   Mini notebooks are best in compatibility. Ubuntu 10.10.
•   Mobile phones best in power consumption and functionality. Android programming not easy.


    Alix-PC                  NanosG20              Foxboard                 Beagleboard




         Bifferboard                       Raspberry Pi                   Samsung i5500
WLAN router webserver for automation

• Pocket router TP-LINK WR703N.
• 400 MHz CPU. 1 W power consumption.
• OpenWRT linux. Still works as router.

• USB hub, flash memory stick, HDD, NAS, FTP
• HD Webcam + 1 W power, Logitech C270
• USB sound card: Internet radio, mp3 player
• USB GSM modem

• Webserver:
  weather forecast, revolvermaps, Pachube graphs

• Arduino home automation via USB:
 temperature, light, PIR alarm, sound level, switches
 Internet controlled power outlets
 wireless temperature sensors 433 MHz.

Selling on Ebay – kind of World conquering.
AU, IT, CL, SG, PT, LV .
Offering cloud storage.
Car number plate detection Singapure.
Keep in touch with mom 2000 km away
Elderly people – no computer skills.
Simpler solution needed.

• Router + Webcam

• WiFi client, internet from neighbours

• SIP phone, Skype phone, smartphone

•Arduino temperature, PIR motion det.
Mobile Webcam for places without internet and power
• See if right time to go to skatepark , play football or ice hockey.
• MobileWebcam.apk for Android, free, good support from developer.
• 1 HD photo/10 min. 20 MB/day. GSM O2 data 15 EUR/month. Samsung 90 EUR.
• Weather-proof box with LiPo 4V, 16 Ah. 2-3 months attendance free. Box 50 EUR.
• Solar charging possible.
Temperature sensor for Pachube – Cosm
                      www.sarmalink.com

•   Video and temperature monitoring from anywhere
•   Free Windows software, cloud storage
•   USB thermometer stick
•   Alarms by email




                                                     • software motion detection
                                                     • movie generation
Summary

                                                                             barbara320.gotdns.com
Tried different low power Linux boards for home automation .
Wrote descriptions at Instructables.com.

Private ambitions fullfilled:
• Can talk to mom and see how she is via a router.
• Autonomous GSM webcam works:
     Uses: summer house, construction site, graffiti prevention, bird nest, sport meetups, events, old
     people remote care, cemeteries, lakes, parking lots, skiing hill, plant growth, time lapse video.

Commercialization of ideas -not my strong side.

May be write or join some EU project?
• EU Future and Emerging Technologies (FET)
   to improve peoples lives

•   EU objective: Health
•   Aging Europe
•   Improve life quality of older people
Appendix: my QS data

                                                    Sleep length and quality monitor
