Build A Twitter-Based Home Automation System With A Raspberry Pi

Thorin Klosowski for LifeHacker:  The Pi is hard wired into a home automation board that controls a fan, light, AC and the temperature. It’s then controlled over Twitter direct messages so it’s super easy to check the status or flip the toggle on any of the connected devices. The Twitter link is a pretty handy way to get around some of the programming requirements that would otherwise be required here, so it’s worth taking a look at how it’s done here if you’re making your own home automation controller. Head over to ARM Tutorials for the guide.
