My latest home automation project, since a month or so ago is to automate my window blinds.
Here’s the general idea:
I want to simulate human activity in my home when I’m away. Lights are currently turning on and off, thanks to Icon relay switch, but the blinds remain shut all day long. I thought it would be a great idea to open and close them automatically, according to the time of day.

Today, I tried for the first time to make a program that would interface with 1-wire. I run the example program « StartNetAdapterHost » on the tini and want to use the NetAdapter class in the vb.net program itself. It worked pretty well but I faced the same difficulties than the last time I tried Java: Lack of examples in documentation.

I’ve been looking for quite a long time for how to create a « http client » that could pass data as with the POST method from a Tini. That way, I’ll be able to send data to be logged to the linux webserver and then, with a PHP page, I’ll send data to the SQL database.
