Home automation system

GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (ie flip on and off) nearly any 120v device. With a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit boards to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25.00. The modules cost around $10.00 (basically a heavy duty relay). Phantom Home is now compatible with HDML, so if you have an HDML wireless phone you can use it to operate the system.
