1st Smart Home Automation project competition - Rules

Start: 1. January 2018

End: 31. March 2018

Project topic: Since this is the first competition, almost anything goes. But there must be at least one automated action taking part during the use of the project. Of course the project must have a DIY component. Buying a smart bulb and controlling it with a provided smartphone app does not qualify. :) And the project must be documented enough to make it clear what you did and how you made it.

Contestants: All registered users can submit their projects. One project pre user only.

Submit your project: Create a new topic with a Subject like this: Q1 - My project It is advised to post your progress as your project advances. This way other users can get a better impression on what you did, and how it actually works, if it is a more complex design.

Winner: All registered forum users will vote for one project, and the one with the most votes will win.

Prize: The prize is an ESP8266 Wemos D1 mini microcontroller board. If there is a lot of competitors, additional prizes might be awarded. Also, with the growth of the OTP forum community, the prizes will also grow.
