Electrical Engineer

My name is Marco Schwartz, and I am an electrical engineer and passionate about home automation and the Internet of Things. However, I was always frustrated by not being able to understand and to modify all these commercial home automation products so I could really adapt them to my needs.

With the raise of open-source hardware, and platforms like Arduino or the Raspberry Pi, I saw an opportunity for hobbyists like me: we could finally make our own home automation and Internet of Things systems using open-source components.

After years of practice, I mastered these new tools to create such systems, and this is what I want to share with you with my courses.
