What is all this about?

The home hacking, automation and green technology community

Home Camp is an unconference about using technology to monitor and automate the home for greener resource use and to save costs.  This is about low energy devices and servers, reducing your electricity bills, monitoring your mouse traps, home automation, monitoring your water usage, using solar power.  This is a hack day. 


Home Camp brings together anyone interested in monitoring and automation of the home using devices like Current Cost meters and RSMB.  There is some great work being done, particulary with Current Cost meters, and Home Camp aims to build on the momentum of this work and help establish a community to continue to exchange new ideas, hacks and scripts.


With energy bills increasing and the cost of oil constantly up and down to eye watering levels, it is in all our interests to take a smarter and more up-to-date approach to managing our resource usage and impact.


Building on HomeCamp 08

Thanks to everyone that attended Home Camp 08 and all involved with making sure the event could happen.  I had a great day and the quality of thinking and conversation was superb.  Looking forward to Home Camp 09 now.


I'd really appreciate your comments and feedback about the day so we can build on the experience for the next event on 25th April 2009.  So if there were things you think could be improved, or were missing, or if you thought we did something well, then please join the discussion on the google groups page.
