Episode one of Life as a Nerd, in this episode I showcase the House Remote. A Web based control application that allows me to manage this house, lights and other activities.
I have several HP Stream 7 Windows Tablets in my home running this web app in full screen.
Time has come, Ambilight 1.5 has met the end of the road...
With the advent of a new TV on the way, its time to revisit the Ambilight once again, this time a full rebuild.
As for a teaser, the new system will be comprised of the following.
1x Teensy 3.2 (to replace the arduino running Adalight, this has a faster CPU and can handle the increased light count)
1x Arduino Micro (this will actually only control a 5V relay, allowing me to shut off the optional "behind the speaker" LEDs)
420 RGBW (CW 6,000k-7,000k) LEDs. 300 for the TV itself and 60 behind each speaker (30 zones, 2 LEDs per zone)
This will all sit behind a new Samsung 65inch 4K Curved TV, and I will post build pictures and video during the process.
The first installment of Life as a Nerd, a brief intro video. More to come as I go in depth into how I build, craft and create the projects and items you see here.
Build 5 of my Home Automation Application is complete. This includes updates to the Main screen and Info pages as well as additional functionality through out the application.
I've made a new video of Build 5 of my Home Control Application for my home automation system, it is nearing completion and once done I plan on doing a home walk-thru showing the app in use through-out the house.
