DIY Home Automation Recipes


We cover some of the least common DIY home automation recipes found on the net. We give you the power to do things that plain old automation hubs can’t do at this moment.  These recipes require software either on your Android, Windows PC, iPhone, iPad or MacBook.  All these recipes usually help tie in lots of capabilities into your already available automation system.  If we display a recipe that isn’t exactly like your system we suggest that you use the same idea and apply it to your own.  Most automation systems have an API that differ slightly and can easily be adapted.
