I want to augment my home with technology.
I can go out and buy commodity kit,
except that mostly seems to consist of
WiFi-connected lightbulbs that will DDoS the neighbours,
and other tech that displays a woeful lack of security and/or interoperability.
I can plug in timer sockets before going on holiday then remove them on return,
but that’s not especially convenient.
I can buy plenty of “remote control power sockets” but they’re often controlled by unsecured broadcast radio that anyone could emit.
Fortunately in 2017 there’s plenty of available kit for me to DIY something better.
On that basis, here are some of my user stories for augmenting my home.
They’re not necessarily novel or hard,
but represent achievable things that will provide concrete improvements.
Suggestions of your own? Let me know!
