Summary

In this chapter we introduced some additional uses of the alarm system hardware that are not found in budget or domestic alarm systems. By using the leftover outputs from the alarm system, we were able to remotely control things in the real world, such as sprinklers and outdoor lighting.

In the next chapter, we will be moving even further away from the conventional alarm system by using BeagleBone to monitor the status of our home network.

Don't forget we are connected to our home network, and the BeagleBone has a USB connector, which is just bound to come in handy!
