I’ve had the pleasure of having a Tasker-controlled home automation system for a while now, and I’ve been loving it. My tiny student apartment isn’t exactly the best place to stuff in a lot of gear, however, so I’ve been rather limited as to what I can do. That’s why I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear when I saw Reddit user droidkc’s Tasker-based home automation system on reddit yesterday, as that really takes it all out and shows what’s possible when you don’t live in a shoe box.
There’s a lot of hardware and software that goes into the setup, but key to the whole system is Tasker and the AutoVoice plug-in. It’s hard to imagine a better advertisement for AutoVoice, as it truly shows what’s possible with the plug-ins ability to chain together commands, and I don’t think anyone can argue with the result. In fact, after seeing this, I’ll definitely be doing a guide to AutoVoice in the near future.
In the mean time, you can check out some additional information about this setup over in the original reddit post.
