To further my quest in replacing my underfloor heating controller with self built Domotica today I’m taking a look at some ultra cheap Chinese relay boards to see if they could work in case (spoiler, they are great!)
I have been using the Honeywell Evohome system in our house for multi-zone underfloor heating since it’s we’ve moved in. I’ve also been having issues with this system since that time and it’s cost me a lot of work to get it to do what it should do and I’m really fed up with it!

A few years back, I made a whole series about awesome 5MP IP Cameras. Over the years they have grown old and it was time to replace them. Technology has not stood still so I started a search for the best 4K (8MP) IP Camera. After testing a lot of no-name and name brands, my choice has fallen on Dahua cameras, check out this post to read about them and watch my video including lots of demo footage!

Welcome to my “Ultimate Overkill Desk” project! It’s basically what it says, I’m building a new desk for in my office and it’s going to be total overkill in all regards, including custom cable ducting and integrated LEDs! Continue reading Ultimate Overkill Desk Project
Recently I was approached by a company who had a kickstarter going for their product, the Juiced 2.0. They offered me a free sample and I decided to subject it to one of my full load reviews!
