If thinking about the home as a system I need to look at Input/Output (I/O) options. If using a biological model the inputs map to senses and the outputs to muscles and nervous system control.
I do not have all these items but hear are some ideas.
- Ultrasound Sensor
- Light Sensor
- Sound Sensor
- Weight and Body Mass – via IFTTT
- Heart Rate
- Lamps – via plugs
- TV – on/off (on probably goes into standby – less useful)
- Kettle – although has separate switch to boil – not amazingly useful
- Toaster – as for kettle
- Speakers/Stereo – on/off
- Coffee Machine
- Washing Machine – any would need additional input to activate
- Dishwasher – ditto
- Motors (x 3)
If anyone has any ideas or has successfully implemented any other devices please add to the comments below.
