Byron Wins B&Q Contract

“Automated Home” reports that Bromsgrove-based electrical products producer Byron has won a contract to supply B&Q with a range of home automation products from it’s “Home Easy” range. The products should start appearing in all 330 B&Q stores nationwide, starting from September 17th.

I’ve had my eye on various methods of home automation for a while now, using X10 modules for a few different trivial tasks. So far I haven’t tried rigging up anything more adventurous than remote control light switches & fans. I’ll have to take a look at the Byron stuff once it hits B&Q and try something new!

    My last bit of freelance work was installing a home automation system.

    I had my flat wired up but had to strip it for parts for the last client who kept changing their mind and didn’t want to wait for delivery.
    I’ve still got some lighting controlled from my webserver and somewhere under a pile of towels is a little robot crawler with a webcam that you used to be able to control from my web page and drive around my apartment… ah the joys of being a geek :) (and I wonder why I’m still single)
