Domoticz: Bash script for presence detection using NMAP

Today I programmed another part of the system I envision for my new house. It’s a bash shell script which checks if either my phone or that of my girlfriend is in range and depending on if it is or not it changes a switch in Domoticz. That way I can automate all the lights turning off when we are not home, and coming back on when we are!

Review: SanDisk Extreme MicroSDXC 64GB card

Since I bought the new Asus Transformer Pad I wanted to have some storage to go with it. And because I always want the best available I bought a SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-1 64GB. I also believe that buying more expensive now will mean it will last me longer, both in speed and size. So, to test this out I ran some benchmarks on the card.
