Building Home Automation Systems with the ESP8266 is a complete video course that I designed to teach you how to build DIY home automation systems using platforms like the ESP8266. I also designed the book so it will inspire you to get your own ideas and start designing & building your own home automation systems.
In no time, you’ll be able to automate your home just as you wish, and show your new connected home to all your friends!
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.
