Hi everybody,
I’m working on home automation project. All project (software and hardware) is under GNU Open Source license. Some parts of the project is working now and can be seen under address http://idom.wizzard .one.pl (only Polish language version). Now I have finished and tested hardware of light dimmer, shutter controller, temperature and humidity controller, interface from RS485 to USB and partially finished PC application controlling the whole system.
If somebody is interested in this project and have a will and time to help me please contact me. I also want to translate the web page into English, so any native speaker to make language corrections is needed too 
Any suggestions and ideas how to continue and develop this project will be greatly appreciated.

Maybe this does not need a polish translation but it needs other kind of polishment for sure.

Could not resist :evil:

BTW. I have a friend who made rat traps that communicated with his PC. There was a red dot on the house picture on the PC screen when there was a rat in them.

ankig1488,

As Steve says you post is Off Topic. Normally I'd move it to a more suitable forum but you have hijacked someone else's thread that IS on topic for this forum. While I could split the thread I suggest you post a new thread in "AVR Forum" to ask about whatever it is you are looking for (but try to do it legibly next time, as most folks will ignore illiterate posts such as your one above)

For those of us that are only English speakers :oops: here is a link to the machine translated version:
http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=pl&u=http://idom.wizzard.one.pl/&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=1&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://idom.wizzard.one.pl%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX. Sorry about the ugly URL.
Looks interesting though I haven't looked too deeply yet.
As a comment some of the 220 volt stuff looks a little dangerous, as shown in the early photo's.
Doesn't look much has been done for a while but this happens with hobbies.

Hi, the project isn’t dead. Just I have not too much time to update my Web page. But in the meantime I’ve made a huge progress, a lot of things works fine. I can agree that the early photos and my experiments with 230V looks dangerous, but now I have professional PCBs, and everything is pretty safe. Unfortunately it’s not possible not to deal with high voltages if we are talking about HA systems. Shutters, light dimmers, HVAC pump controllers, all these devices must be powered by 110/230V. If anybody is interested in this project I will welcome.
