Its an ongoing project, will it end? Probably not 😛 Anyhow I thought it was time for an update. The current version has been re-written in VB .Net. New features include triggering events at sunrise/sunset, current weather reports, Text to Speech and Intelligent Speech Recognition so people can interact with the system using only voice commands.

The Client application is still in its early stages, there are various parts of the interface including Irrigation, Weather Reports, CCTV, Lighting control, Audio Control & Security. They are pretty self explanatory about what each part will do so I won’t go into detail.
Still on the To-Do list are building a 15″ touch screen into a wooden frame which will be mounted on he wall and having the application show the front door CCTV feed when a motion sensor is triggered, or door bell pressed.
