First off, my apologies for the delay on updates. I definitely dropped the ball on that one.
CORE: We are moving forward with debugging and adding drivers and functionality. We meet daily to work on development.
As I mentioned before, we’ve been working on developing some DIY KITS that will work with CORE and other existing platforms. As each kit reaches advanced prototype stage, we will share the information with you.
Our intention is to take home automation to the next level. We’ve identified several gaps where local home automation solutions lack in availability.
The first of several kits that we have developed is a pressure sensor application. On top of posting a project in the community, we’ve taken this a step further and developed a board called Thorny Devil with optional wired motion sensors and pressure sensor connections, and two dry contacts.
The use case for this would include, but not be limited to: bed presence, changing table presence, couch/chair presence, garage door open/close automations with perhaps … car presence? This is the short list of things this board can do. Sound interesting? We sure think so.
Photos and specs will be released in the coming weeks as I finish up the documentation.
The one thing we’re still hashing out is if this will be sold with Zigbee or Wi-fi. They’re interchangeable modules. What are your thoughts?
