Home automation using VB.NET

Postby d-ray » Fri Nov 17, 2006 4:35 pm


I want to create my own home automation software.
I have some experience with rs232 & socket communication in VB.Net
I can read my I/O in variables from my hardware....

but how can I do the logic programming?

If input1 high for 10s and input 2 high then make output1 high for 20s

I need a lot of inputs and outputs and timers
Is ther a way to make it more structured?
Classes? events? timers?

I you can send me some example code.... it will be nice [:D]

Here is a lot of information, video's and examples for Home Automation Domotica and Microsoft .NET (VB.NET C# ASP.NET etc)
I'm planning to rewrite my Bwired home control system to Microsoft .NET as well.
