Floyd: House, System & Network status
Floyd is the project name for 1401 Floyd Ave
consisting of a home automation system, networking and internet presence
The Floyd project is an attempt to automate a house as much as possible with (most of the time) reasonable technology choices. So far, a good 30%
of choices have turned out to be bleeding edge as opposed to leading edge technologies, mostly proving that more research and less hype goes a
long way towards reducing surprises (rocket scientist to figure that one out?).
What does Floyd consist of?
