Description

Until recently, home automation was an unfulfilled promise — systems were gimmicky, finicky, user-hostile, or potentially unsecure. But today, thanks to a new crop of devices and technologies, home automation is useful, fun, and maker-friendly. Using smartphones, wireless networks, the internet, simple microcontrollers, and even gesture recognition, DIY-style Smart Homes can now do everything promised and more, for much less — and MAKE shows you how in Volume 30.

I have been interested in trying to automate my home for a few years now and this has some interesting tidbits to help you along the way to making your home "smarter." Unlike other dedicated books, the tutorials in this aren't quite as comprehensive but if you know what you're doing, the information in this magazine is more than enough to get you going. As usual with a lot of the Make magazines, the pictures in it are great and really make for a good magazine. Full Review  >
