  1. Hi, I love your work. Very impressive! I am currently toying with arduino and GSM/GPRS shield that accepts sms’s as control inputs for lights,heaters,etc… I would like to do a Blackberry 7 app that will allow me to send the required codes via sms to my controller on just a click of a button. I have no idea where to start. Can you please assist me?

    • First I’d drop SMS all together. I have never understood the point of using SMS, but a lot of people offer that in their software.

      Just think of the cost. How about instead you write a web page/app in PHP or something like that. And use that to control your home automation, that’s what I do. What do you plan to use to actually control the objects in your house, lights, heaters, etc.

      Check out iphone home controller, iPHC. Its a good basic tool for controlling x10 at least, but it’s easy to modify. This will give you an example of what I’m talking about.
