MIDAS: Homemade Dorm Room Home Automation System

MIDAS: Homemade Dorm Room Home Automation System: "Since moving into my dorm this last fall, my roommate RJ Ryan and I have been working on creating the most elaborate automation system we could envision. Featuring everything from web control, voice activation, and a security system, to large continuously running information displays, electric blinds, and one-touch parties, the custom designed MIDAS Automation System has brought ease to our lives (if one doesn't count all the time it took to actually build and program the system).

The following page will both describe the system functionalities as well as a description on how it was built. Anyone with some programming and construction skills, drive, and a couple hundred dollars should be able to replicate this system."
