What devices are turned on at any given time depends largely on which of us is here, and what we’re doing.This project is a system to reduce our power consumption, particularly when we’re not there.We are happy to offer city-wide delivery and an association with a consortium of fine florists, offering outstanding floral design for nationwide and international delivery.If you want to make a purchase and your billing address and/or credit card is outside the United States, please call the shop to order.The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth.Even when we’re not here, the room is drawing a lot of power.
Please feel free to browse our gallery and blog to get a sense of what we do and then visit our order page for our unique approach to ordering flowers.When either of us comes into the room, all we have to do is tap our key fobs on a reader mounted by the door, and the room turns on or off what we normally use. The reader by the door reads the presence or absence of the tags.It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.We hand select our flowers daily and carry a large assortment of fresh orchids and tropicals along with seasonal picks.
