I’m currently running OpenHAB as well as domoticz. OpenHAB surprised me with support for Belkin WeMo with a click of a button (downloading an add on). OpenHAB items and rules are a little bit more complicated but there are several tutorials online. As I get further into OpenHAB I’ll post more information and possibly a comparassion between the two platforms.
Domoticz is a great home automation software package which can easily run on a Raspberry Pi.
Domoticz can integrate into existing home automation hardware, some of these are: RFXCOM Transceiver, Z-Wave, P1 Smart Meter, YouLess Meter, Pulse Counters, 1-Wire, EnOcean, and a lot more. We have configured Domoticz to talk to the Belkin WeMo light switches as well as set up 2 x DS18B20 temperature sensors on a 1-wire bus (using GPIO pins of Raspberry Pi). MySensors is another great project which can be integrated into the Domoticz setup.
I recently set up a friends iPhone so that they could access their hotmail account through the mail app. Everything went well, until we decided to set up 2-Step Auth. Outlook uses the authenticator app from Google to supply the code, however, this would not sync with the Outlook server for quite some time. I eventually figured out that the lag was because the iPhone was not synced with a time server (through cellular network time) and therefore the app would not sync with the outlook server. Consequently, once I updated the setting on the iPhone, access was obtained with the code from the Authenticator app.
Rather than install an extension into Google chrome to save a page as a PDF, you can easily save the webpage you’re on in a few clicks.
After some researching I found a lot of these extensions available were sending the webpage you were on to a third party for processing (which I wasn’t too happy with for security reasons).
Then I found the simple way!
For Windows users – Hit print ( Ctrl + P) and under destination choose “Save as PDF”.
It’s that easy!
