This blog has been an on-and-off forum for my Home Monitoring project for Elderly people. (A non-intrusive, internet aware means of keeping track of Grandma/Grandpa).
For the past year I've been exploring different technologies, from X10 to Z-Wave to Cameras to homebrew sensors.
Within just a year, prices have dropped dramatically on embedded (ARM) computers, Android tablets, and USB/Wi-Fi cameras. I'm not so much dedicated to cheap hardware, but I am open to any options given the steep prices for Z-Wave and other proprietary tech.
More info to come. This is going to be interesting and... different.
