Projects/To-Do List

Telecom

  • Setup Cisco Wireless Phone
  • Setup x100p FXO Card
  • Get wake-up calls to work for me

Security

  • Find some good wireless Z-Wave Motion Sensors, battery powered.

Network

  • Need to find another Access Point to set up for outside, stronger signal inside

Irrigation

Make a poor man's sprinkler system using Z-Wave:

  • Be able to use on 120/220 volt (transformer is fine)
  • Be able to use on 50/60hz (going to be tough)
  • Modular, to be able to pick it up and go when I move.
  • Not able to dig up yard, so I can't do that

So, here is what I have so far:

  • Intermatic HomeSettings Outdoor Z-Wave Appliance Module ($25)
  • Honeywell AT140A1042 Universal Mount 24 Volt Transformer ($27)
  • Nelson Solenoid 7962 ($11)
  • A 5 foot legnth of hose ($5)
  • Various fittings ($10)


Going to try and find cheaper parts, but this is a good start I believe.

Core/Hybrid

  • Setup RS-232 on Display
  • Setup RS-232 on Sat. Box
  • Install TV Tuner Card
