We’ve all had that moment when we get halfway to our destination and think, “Did I close the garage door?” Problem solved—our own iDigi Product Manager, Jordan Husney, teaches you how to create a 12,000-Mile Universal Remote to flip any switch in your home in Make: Volume 30, Smarter Homes.
12,000-Mile Universal Remote by Jordan Husney is on page 66 in the print edition of Make. It uses the XBee Internet Gateway, Digi ConnectPort, iDigi and an Android mobile application with iDigi Web Services to control the door and monitor its position. There’s also a web application that demonstrates how easy it is to use iDigi Web Services to connect with and control devices through the cloud.
