From thermostats to security systems, networked devices are moving into the home and into the mainstream–and makers are leading the way. As MAKE kicks off a week of “connected home” projects, tutorials, and inspiration this week, we’re launching a contest for the best reader-submitted connected home/Internet of Things project. The winner, to be selected by MAKE editors, will receive:
- A $500 coupon/voucher to spend at the Maker Shed
- Coverage of his or her project on makezine.com
- A vintage NuTone doorbell from the home of Executive Editor Mike Senese!
To submit your contest entry, please enter your name, project name, email address, phone number, and clear, comprehensive project build instructions with how-to steps for successfully reproducing the project (and any photos, videos, or digital assets, if available). Submissions are due by 11:59 PST on Thursday Feb 6, 2014. (Winners will be announced on Friday, February 7, 2014.)
