A very nice home automation project. Control every device using a personal Computer
You will first need a computer, but since your reading this, I assume that you already have that taken care of. Second, you will have to buy about 20 IC’s and a very expensive ISA experimenters prototyping board.
Since this is a major project, it will be presented in sections, starting with the Simple Parallel Port Interface. The 8 Bit Output Card will come next, followed by the 8 Bit Input Card. All three interfaces came from the book “The Robot Builders Bonanza”, by Gordan McComb.
