Home Automation - TinkerForge brings home automation to the masses with its DIY kit

Do you have some old 433MHz home automation gear lying around and fancy making your home a little smarter? TinkerForge is releasing a new internet of things controller designed to let you run power sockets, light fittings and even electric blinds from the comfort of your smartphone. The platform markets itself as a coding-free alternative to Arduino and Raspberry Pi, so building the control scheme online promises to be entirely safe for novices. If you snag the hardware before May 24th, then it'll only set you back €50 ($70), after which the price will go up to €65 ($90), but that's a small price to pay to really freak out your housekeeper.
