Home automation control via Twitter


Lynn, from ioBridge, sent us a link to this project by Matt Morey which uses the ioBridge IO-204 and the PHP Widget Control API to allow him to send commands to his home automation system via Twitter. Using this set-up, he can write messages to an LCD screen, get sensor values, and turn off the lights.
