Started on the installation of the electronic lock for the front door today.
Eventually the plan is to have RFID control as well as integrate it with the Insteon system for control from the smart phones, computers, etc.
Is pretty rough around the edges atm but it will have to come out for cables to be run to the back soon so I’ll file the edges and put some paint on make it a little prettier but for now it’s in and functional ready for the next lot of parts to arrive 😀
First read about the Chumby a few years ago but at the time it was quite expensive to get one here in Australia and so mostly forgot about it until I read an article the other week mentioning that the Chumby was back!
The Chumby is a bedside clock replacement with over 1000 apps you can cycle through from clocks, weather, Facebook, picture slide show, etc.
Shipped from the USA on Tuesday and arrived Friday morning, time to unpack it 🙂
Now time to load some “apps” up and have a play.
Eventually hope to write an app to integrate into my Insteon system allowing bedside table control of the whole house.
The Insteon Hub allows HTTP requests to be used to control devices and the Chumby uses Flash Lite so shouldn’t be too hard.
