[UPDATE 2015 12 13]
How about if you could control your entire home temperature and hot water/central heating etc etc, through your smartphone over the internet ?
You are going to think that this is a dangerous IoT (Internet of Thing) that exposes your privacy to unknown attackers and your smart home is going to be under the control of an evil company.
What if I could tell you, that you can build your own smart controller with open-design/open hardware & free software that costs about €100 ?
Crazy, right ?
Actually there is a project that does exactly all the above and much more and it’s based on a Raspberry Pi.
Let me introduce you to HestiaPi .
The name comes from the greek word: εστία and everything you need to start with, have already been published by the core developer on their site.
The team behind this awesome project will host/run an open/free entrance two day Hackathon at Athens, Hackerspace on 2016.
If you are curious on the project, visit hackerspace.gr and be part of this amazing project.
