Episode Idea - OpenRemote

Post by jammastercd » Wed Sep 07, 2011 10:17 am

If you're looking for ideas for future episodes, you may want to check out OpenRemote.org. It's an open source solution for home control. I've got it installed on my myth backend and have been testing it for the last few weeks. I can currently control my myth frontend with it and plan to add IR support for my other A/V devices. The really nice part is they've built a nice online designer for control panels that can work on iPhones, iPads, Android phones/tables and other touch controls with web interfaces.

I'm looking forward to the next episode. Keep up the great work!

Doing home automation is (can be) a snap (sorta!?!) Just need a web server and a little hardware.

Thanks for the info. Can you give me a breakdown of how you have it setup in myth. I will take a look at the project when time allows. How will you get IR working? CommandIR?
