Note: You may experience an issue with the free preview that Udemy support is currently working on. The video transition between lectures is not working in the full screen mode. Please hit the "ESCAPE" key on your keyboard to come out of full screen mode and then select the lecture you would like to preview. That should work. This issue is only with preview. The transition seems to be working fine in the actual course. My apologies for any inconvenience.
Would you like to learn DIY home improvements to turn your home into a Smart Home? How about turning your driveway and living room lights on in the evening automatically to welcome you home? Have you run into the situation when you don't remember whether the garage door was closed? Did your friends and families have to wait outside just because no one was at home to open the door for them. The list goes on and on. A Smart Home can help you solve all these problems and many more. Are you wondering how to get started?
