This post differs from my other posts as it is about more of a personal project rather than a school one. It is equally as geeky however and I will be investigating how this can be simplified into a school project around ‘Automating your Home’ in the future. Hopefully you will find it interesting! As you can imagine, married life brings about new challenges and in our household, the first of which was the big question . . . How do we control our new reclining sofa from our mobile devices? Pushing a button next to the seat just seemed too easy for us, so we (mostly my husband) set out on a project to take control over this small part of our living room.
