The Wired Home

By Deane Barker on February 2, 2006 – Home automation in the Netherlands: Some folks in the Netherlands automated their entire house and are pushing all the data out to a Web site. You can see:

  • what rooms have lights turned on
  • what their last phone calls were, or who they called
  • how much electricity and gas they’re using at any given hour
  • how cold their fridge is
  • when the doorbell rang last
  • etc.
