xPL Monkey - Home Automation - xPLHub My involvement with xPL has come to an end. Automation has moved on considerably over the past few years, and it is now possible to buy a stand-alone controller off the shelf for a reasonable price, without having to spend hours writing your own code. This website is being maintained as a record of my xPL development work up until 2011. Xbee Adapter - wireless Arduino programming If you have an Arduino project where the dev board is stuck inside a machine, or attached to the rafters or is inaccessable in some other way, a wireless programming/debugging link will save you tons of time. This tutorial is an extension on Rob's version. In this tutorial, no extra firmware or hardware (other than a capacitor) is necessary. Just use the default bootloader. I use a 'classic' Arduino but of course this can be easily adapted to any version or clone.
Understanding Z-Wave Networks, Nodes & Devices Z-Wave home automation technology comprises of three layers. The radio layer, network layer and application layer work together to create a robust and reliable network that enables numerous nodes and devices to communicate with each other simultaneously. Radio Layer: Defines the way a signal is exchanged between network and the physical radio hardware. This includes frequency, encoding, hardware access, etc.Network Layer: Defines how control data is exchanged between two devices or nodes. This includes addressing, network organisation, routing, etc.Application Layer: Defines which messages need to be handled by specific applications in order to accomplish particular tasks such as switching a light or changing the temperature of a heating device. The Network Layer
ZigBee ZigBee is used in applications that require only a low data rate, long battery life, and secure networking. ZigBee has a defined rate of 250 kbit/s, best suited for periodic or intermittent data or a single signal transmission from a sensor or input device. Applications include wireless light switches, electrical meters with in-home-displays, traffic management systems, and other consumer and industrial equipment that requires short-range wireless transfer of data at relatively low rates. The technology defined by the ZigBee specification is intended to be simpler and less expensive than other WPANs, such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. 3D Flash Gallery - 3D Wall Flash Component - Flash Galleries The 3D Wall Flash component displays images on an engaging interactive 3D wall using the Papervision3D engine. The PRO version can also display FLV videos and SWF's, with a several additional features. The wall can be flat or set at any curvature to create a truly unique look. The viewer can also scroll, tilt and zoom the wall freely. Includes a built-in preloader for seamless transitions between thumbs and large images. Over 80 parameters to customize your wall ensures unlimited number of looks and an enticing viewer experience.
XPL Protocol xPL is an open protocol intended to permit the control and monitoring of home automation devices. The primary design goal of xPL is to provide a rich set of features and functionality, whilst maintaining an elegant, uncomplicated message structure. The protocol includes complete discovery and auto-configuration capabilities which support a fully "plug-n-play" architecture - essential to ensure a good end-user experience. Tutorials sparkfun.com log in register XBee XBee Sort by: Recently Added Wireless outdoor Arduino weather station with PC logging and Graphs I wanted to have a log of outdoor weather with PC logging and graphs for quite some time now. There are such devices in the market but their cost is really high. So, decided to build one by myself and enjoy the experience too.

EnOcean The EnOcean technology is an energy harvesting wireless technology used primarily in building automation systems; but is also applied to other applications in industry, transportation, logistics and smart homes. Modules based on EnOcean technology combine micro energy converters with ultra low power electronics and enable wireless communications between batteryless wireless sensors, switches, controllers and gateways. In March 2012, the EnOcean wireless standard was ratified as the international standard ISO/IEC 14543-3-10. The standard covers the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) layers 1-3 which are the physical, data link and networking layers. The energy harvesting wireless modules are manufactured and marketed by the company EnOcean which is based in Oberhaching, Germany. EnOcean offers its technology and licenses for the patented features within the EnOcean Alliance framework. Technology
