Home Automation Update #1

Just a small update to log what progress I have made over the last couple of days:

The biggest addition to the system is the inclusion of timers, users can now set daily, weekly or one off timers to turn devices on and off and vice versa. I will look into adding more customisable timers, such as specific days of the week/month, but this will require a rewrite of the timer system. At the moment i’m just trying to keep the feature as simple as possible until all other aspects are completed.

The next step is to create the simple .aspx web page that will allow the users to add or remove timers on the system. The timers are stored in a simple XML file, which when de-serialised turns into a list of timer objects.
