HI. I’m Philippe and I live in Antwerp, Belgium. A few years ago, we have bought a house and it takes several years to make it our home, our smart home. It’s still a project in progress. But if I change anything, I will try to adjust it here on the forum.
I started with a basic installation for the lights with KNX. The last year, I have been reading a lot, following a lot of blogs, testing and now I’m trying to expand my smart home project with Esp8266, Arduino, Sonoff, … . For the software, I use Openhab2 and Node-red as a rule engine.
At this moment I’m working on push buttons for light and push buttons for music.
For the music in the bathroom, I used a Chromecast audio. I operate the Chromecast audio with push buttons, through MQTT and Node-Red.
I used a Freetonics EtherMega and a I/O Breakout Shield.
Because we started small, with basic installation, and we wanted to expand it later, the cabling was already placed. I couldn’t use RJ54 connectors (like Superhouse) so I created my own PCB. I made a I/O Breakout from IDC Header to Screw Terminals.
For the push buttons, I created a PCB with screw connectors.
