I’m a HUGE fan of Jimmy Diresta (https://www.youtube.com/user/jimmydiresta), so this was my first attempt at making a similar style video of another thing I’m a big fan of… home automation.
I’ve done a lot of home automation (science) projects with Arduino, and then moving to Raspberry Pi and Google Cloud Messaging. Late last year I decided to try out SmartThings, and I’m VERY happy with that decision. They have a great site for developing your own Z-Wave “device types” as well as Smart Apps. This allows you to easily transform one device into another, as well as add custom icons, text, and notifications (SMS or Android).
You can find the device type and smart app I created for this video at my GitHub here: https://github.com/jdeltoft/SmartThings
Note as you can see in the video, I tried epoxy but it failed to really stick smooth plastic to plastic.
