Hey guys met here from MK smart house calm and in this video I’ll be showing you what my channel is all about welcome to my smart home this is a system I designed that is a large majority of DIY home made smart devices when I say DIY I mean I designed and coded most of these devices let me.
Emphasize the eye part as I designed and coded this so you do not have to there is very little brain power involved on your part if you choose.
To follow my system all you would have to do is follow simple instructions and you too will have a smart home similar to mine this YouTube channel as well as.
House comm will be a giant resource full of simple and easy to follow guides on how to make these devices in addition to how to put this low-cost system together yes I did.
Say low cost because the parts for these devices do not cost a lot of money but enough talking as the explanation part of this will be a separate video speaking of if this.
Video reaches a hundred like I will release it sooner and then it is planned anyways let’s just.
Get into the demo to start off let’s talk about voice control as if right now I’m using the Amazon echo dot as.
Well as Syria on my iPhone and on my Apple watch in the future I am also looking into voice control in Android that being said before we continue please make sure that if you have an Amazon echo please make sure it is set to mute or else it may get triggered by my commands Alexa turn off MK light okay Alexa.
Turn on MK light okay Alexa turn off computer setup okay so as you saw when I triggered it to turn off my computer setup it turned off my monitors and it also turned off my USB accessories as well as power to these devices so right now if I wanted to turn on this printer I can Alexa turn off TV setup okay so as you saw it turned.
Off the TV turned off the sound system and it turned off the Xbox 360 let’s move over here for the next ones Alexa turn on zone one okay Alexa turn on zone 2 okay Alexa turn on zone three okay I don’t know if you heard that but there were clicks going on and those were the power being distributed more on that later there.
Are many more commands for the echo but those are just a few next let’s move on to series so we’re going to be using Siri on my Apple watch which is right here hey Siri turn on Samsung TV and as you saw it turned on my samsung TV hey Siri turn on sound system see sound.
On hey Siri turn on Xbox 360 so now if I go over to my xbox and press power they can turn on hey Siri turn on Dell monitors see the monitors.
Came online let’s go back to the sprinkler system hey Siri turn off sprinkler system I don’t know if you heard the clicks but they did click more on that later same thing with the echo those were just a few commands there are many more.
This video a little shorter I won’t say mall don’t worry there will be another separate video for that now let’s take a look at the different user interfaces as.
Well as the different devices you can control the system from first and my favorite is the wall-mounted.
Interface I like it because you can turn anything on.
Or off at any time and it is motion activated let’s turn off the lights turn them back on and then let’s also turn off the Samsung TV.
As you can see over there it’s off and turn it back on another cool thing is.
That if I catch something to the.
Chromecast I can play and I can pause as well as control the volume also let’s set the LED strip to.
Blue to set the mood while watching an.
MK car garage video for those wondering it’s my car channel link below if you’re interested so let’s go over to LED strip control and choose.
The color blue so now if we pan back over to the TV setup the color is blue on.
A little purple but it’s actually blue we can also set it to green and many many many more colors to.
Choose from literally any color you would want but let’s go back.
And pause the video in addition I can also control the security system from here it shows me the status of the system the status of the door and I can also turn it on from here so let’s enter the password and press enter to turn it.
On and as you can see the security system did turn on speaking off.
Let’s do a quick demo of one of its features which is that if I open the door the LED strip will turn to red and I will.
Get a notification on my phone as you can see the door is closed now if I open it the LED strip turned to red and I got our notification on my phone lastly my favorite thing is the fact that I.
Can control the blinds from here so we can close open and.
Set them and a half and here’s a.
Full clip of showing them opening closing and setting them.
With a half next is mobile device user interface which works on iOS and Android on Android as.
You can see we have all the devices to control I can.
Also see the temperature humidity and if there’s fire inside the home let’s just turn on the TV setup and turn on the computer.
Setup iOS control is pretty much.
The same thing as Android but on iOS you can also control stuff from the home app such as turn off the TV set up and turn on zone one which is this sprinkler system but since it is currently winter I don’t have it connected instead I have it connected to the fire sensor for demo purposes finally I can access the system from pretty.
Much any web browser so to do so Alexa turn on computer.
Setup okay and as you can see I currently have it open and have access to all the different control devices for the last part of the video I’m going to quickly show you the devices and exactly which.
Ones are controlled as well as which ones send information this will not be detailed because the more detailed information will be in the next video which is the explanation 1 this is the control wall and it is basically what controls the entire house don’t worry about the gray panels we.
Instead we will be focusing over here on the network and servers for the smart home next is the door sensor and it sends information to the.
Can see if we open it then on the tablet it changes state moving to the right we have the sprinkler system which we can control the different zone attached to it is the fire sensor so if I activate zone 1.
