Turning the heating on before arriving home, watching real-time video from the inside, automatically turning the alarm on when you leave home… These are common tasks you would like to implement in a smart domotized home.

When you realize the options available aren’t what you were looking for, and you have tried DIY solutions to automate things with Arduino, the idea comes up clear to your mind: I want to create my own domotics with arduino.
