    You an easily create the garage door opener using a Raspberry Pi, a magnetic reed switch and a relay board. I have it setup so I can pull up a website and see if my garage door is open or closed and I can open or close it with a simple tap on a icon. I also have it setup so I can toggle the power to the motion sensor light on the outside of my garage. I only have about $60 in that project and it could be cut by $25 by using a Pi Zero W.

    there are dozens of videos that PROVE that most of these so called "things that make life easier" actually introduce more steps and make things take longer

    • Anirudh Appala
      Anirudh Appala Month ago

      Maybe , but as an engineer, my focus is to avoid just this ! Building an intuitive , unobtrusive and easy to use (like talking to your assistant ) is how I want all things to be built and that's how I'll ever build anything. If I feels it's more of a hassle , immediately scrap it and think of a better way.

    • techforever1970
      techforever1970 Month ago

      Totally agree. Such as is the case with Philips Hue, makes turning on the lights once you get to your room a little bit harder than just flipping a switch (provided you dont have the $30 remote). I personally have an echo so I just tell her to turn on the lights, instead of fumbling with my phone. On the other hand, once you really really exploit the features, theyre super nice and do actually make life easier. Something to be mentioned though, is that theyre very expensive, and it would take a million bucks to turn your home all smart lighting. Aaaaand it would be outdated in a couple of years๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Tyler Snyder
    Tyler Snyder Month ago +3

    This is not a complaint against you, just a general observation.
    One problem I always have with any reviews of as seen on TV products or anything else really is that you only find out if it does what it's supposed to.
    The problem with this is that especially with the tools this really doesn't tell you much.
    To some degree most tools do what they're supposed to , what we really need to know is if it will last.
    I doubt anyone reviewing a bunch of stuff all the time is going to use it enough to know.

    • Kevin Fields
      Kevin Fields Month ago

      A problem with that is that unless you're Consumer Reports or a big network TV station, you don't have the time or the budget to simulate hundreds of hours of wear and tear. The best you can do is give an update on the product every 6-12 months. And with ASOTV stuff, by the time you get to a one or two year review, the product probably isn't being manufactured anymore. A lot of this stuff is just junk that is priced to sell quick and isn't made for durability, and once the company starts racking up liabilities for bad products or sees declining sales, they cut their losses and move on to something else.

    ...why would you use 9v instead of a more common 12v transformer? Those LEDs are probably designed for up to 14v input and 12v would've been much brighter and safer

    • kipkay
      kipkay  Month ago +1

      jojuae 9v transformer that I had put out a little over 10v. Amperage on that adapter was perfect. I couldnโ€™t find a low enough amp 12v in my box. LEDโ€™s are very efficient.

      @LACSMOB that's why i was thinking something that would be directly like in the car like a sensor by itself, not connected to the phone.

      Definitely an easy implementation, but it may be a battery drain for your phone.
