I'm working on a project to try to utilize a Beaglebone (A small embedded Linux PC development board) to control various things remotely.
(If you're not familiar with Beaglebone, take a quick look here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6b4zlh0IrE
or here http://http://beagleboard.org/ )
What I want to use is the integrated Analog/Digital Converter to read various things (such as, various magnetic switches, light sensors, temperature sensors,etc.etc). Based on these values I want to report this up to MH.
I also want to provide momentary switching for garage door control and gate control.
This is remote and beyond Insteon reliable distance;but I have a fiber run - so its still viable with Ethernet.
That being said, has anyone tried doing this?
I haven't bought the Beaglebone yet; but really close to buying it and trying to write some python code to run on this; since its Linux :-)
Just thought I'd see if anyone has tried this.
