  1. Im always banging on about this but check out Casambi. Easy to use and cheap too. They have everything you can ever want. Download the app to look at the options they offer. I specify them on all our projects from one fitting to thousands.

    Quality Internal Door Hinges

    Thanks guys, hopefully moving to a new house soon so gathering info on what ill be changing. Maybe keep a wee blog on here to document it.
  3. Can anyone recommend a top quality door hinge for internal doors. Or just perhaps what type I should be looking at? Ball bearing?

    Mood lighting etc

    Check out Casambi. Very very good system, reasonably priced and easy to use. Just add power and away you go!

    Bio-ethanol fire

    Is this the same then as moonshine they brew in America? Is it easy to make biodiesel?

    Air pollution monitoring

    I would also be very interested. I wanted to do a project like this for a while now, this is the perfect excuse. Im in Northern Ireland so would be good to compare data.
  8. Look up the Bluetooth wireless mesh, just upgraded to 50m. Maybe in a city it would be useful to create the mesh. JSHarris, whst about the coconut husk filters for water?

    Cavity boxes in plasterboard

    Fit noggins and metal boxes or you'll regret it. Why couldnt you fit metal boxes throughout?

    Raspberry Pi Zero W TOR wifi AP?

    I must admit that I love the RPI. Its so versatile and has brought DIY programming to the masses. There were others before but I really like the RPI. Ive all sorts of projects dreamt up. Hopefully start implementing some sooner rather than later. Ill start threads on here so we can all help eachother.

    Jeremy, fantastic. Ive a few PoE ideas for the RPI. I just need time to implement them. I also need to learn more about the security end of things too.

    Quinetic Switches

    You should all check out Casambi! It also now interfaces with EnOcean Kinetic wireless switches. It all works over Bluetooth 4.0 in a mesh configuration. Download the app and have a play and see how simple it is to use and configure. Its not expensive either.
