GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system.
GNU Phantom.Home uses a simple electronic circuit that you build (the
circuit diagram is included, and can be completed by even a novice with
minimal electronics experience... or get a friend to do it :) ).
The device (Phantom.Home.Controller) is connected to a parallel port
on your computer. You can use/control (i.e. turn on or off) almost any
120V home appliance with the GNU Phantom.Home system! And you can control
almost ANY device at ANY voltage with a little bit of modification to the
Phantom.Home.Controller circuit. Imagine... being able to feed your couch
potato needs by controlling all the lights and venting (fans) in a room
right from your trusty PC! Examples and sample setups are included in the
GNU Phantom.Home package.
GNU Phantom.Home can be found on
or one of the mirrors.
