My Internet Of Things Home Automation Project On


I recently entered for Microsoft Internet of Things competition. I would be building an automation system using Raspberry Pi 2 model B+ and Microsoft IoT Core.

I had to get a Raspberry Pi 2 kit. And got the well recommended Canary Raspberry Pi Ultimate Kit

The project has been viewed over 496 times and respected by 6 people. One went further to leave an encouraging comment. It will fall under my programming practice jobs. I would be using Visual Studio 2015 and C# in building the home automation system. I plan to have it use the internet to relay information to me and get commands from me from wherever I am.

I will be sure to let you know how I progress.

My Project description on is as follow:

In 2009, I designed and constructed a home automation system that works well with the peculiar nature of power supply and user behaviour in Nigeria. It worked so well that a company wanted to built a commercial version of it and pay me royalties.

I also put up the design, programming and construction document online and it has been downloaded 10,422 times as at 14-August-2015. Mostly by other Nigerians and lots of Indians. It probably solves a need for them over there in India too.

In this new project, I would be using Raspberry Pi, Windows 10 IOT core and Windows Azure to rebuild the home automation system and give it more features than the original one I did in 2009.
