Home Automation Kickoff

Today was the kickoff of the wireless switch, a device required for the full automation of my apartment. In the current implementation it enables a 110V appliance to be switched wirelessly from a laptop or server. I used Arduino and XBee-based prototype to switch a simple desk lamp wirelessly and read out data from the built-in temperature and light level sensors. Details about the prototype and current status of the project can be viewed here.
