In Detail

Home automation lets you control daily activities such as changing the temperature, opening the garage door, or dimming the lights of your house using microprocessors. BeagleBone is a low-cost, high-expansion, hardware-hacker-focused BeagleBoard. It is small and comes with the high-performance ARM capabilities you expect from a BeagleBoard. BeagleBone takes full-featured Linux to places it has never gone before.

Starting with the absolute basics, BeagleBone Home Automation gives you the knowledge you will require to create an Internet-age home automation solution. This book will show you how to set up Linux on BeagleBone. You will learn how to use Python to control different electronic components and sensors to create a standalone embedded system that also accepts control remotely from a smartphone.

This book starts with the very basics of Linux administration and application execution using terminal connections. You will learn the basics of the general purpose input/output pins and discover how various electronic sensors and electronic components work. The “hardware jargon” is explained, and example applications demonstrating their practical use are created so that you will feel in control of the capabilities provided.

Network programming is also a big part of this book, as the created server will be made accessible from the Internet through a smartphone application. You will also learn how to create a fully working Android application that communicates with the home automation server over the Internet.


An easy-to-follow guide full of hands-on examples to help transform your house into a standalone home automation solution.

Who this book is for

If you are looking for ways to create a highly capable home automation system that is easily extendable and highly configurable, then this book is for you. Basic knowledge of electronics and programming in Python and/or Java languages will be helpful, but not mandatory.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't buy this book! 20. Januar 2014
Von Koralamode - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book seems to attempt to start at the basics and work its way up through the depths of electronics and hardware to achieve _something_ with which the reader can utilize as a skill set to implement their own home automation system. With that, it falls short in a number of ways:

1. It assumes that you have familiarity with programming in python and that you have some experience with Java on the Android platform, and that you're wielding a BeagleBone Black, not a BeagleBone.
2. While it makes assumptions that you don't know anything about the BeagleBone Black, Linux, electricity, schematics, or electronic terminology, it does approach offensive with the level of detail that it goes into when it's not quite necessary. It's hit and miss though, so you would be ill advised to use this book as an intro to anything.
3. The examples provided, and often, even the chapters themselves seem to veer quite far from the context or path of the learning material. One example of this is how the book covers in great detail the implementation of a pretty useless custom TCP/IP network protocol. If you want to do such a thing, buy a book on that topic and do it right.
4. In contrast, things that should be in the book often aren't. The last couple of chapters talked about the importance of securing the network protocol that you implement so that 3rd parties can't connect, hijack, or otherwise monitor your home on your behalf. The last paragraph of the book *spoiler alert!* suggests that you continue with the author's suggestions by implementing something yourself.
5. The book doesn't really cover home automation. I couldn't so much as turn on a light after following the content. In fact, I would say that it barely covered the Beaglebone Black.

The implementations and examples in the book are, simply put, terrible. Here's a few reasons why:
1. All of the networking library is built using functions, and not a one is a part of a class. The author has no idea what he's doing in what may be the easiest programming language to learn, ever.
2. There is absolutely no reason that a person attempting home automation should be implementing their own network stack; this material could easily account for about 1/2 of the book.
3. The Beaglebone comes with cloud9, which could be used to setup a secure socket server or an HTTPS web server, something that is much more functional and easier than having to use the twisted framework in python (which the author should have used if he insists on using python). Then you could cut out the whole section on developing your own Android app, and just browse to your home computer using tried-and-true protocols that aren't difficult to debug.
4. There are some simple circuits for reading variable resistors and such, but they seem almost like they're copied directly from any number of the Arduino books in circulation. Any one of them would certainly be a better source.
5. The author doesn't really position the Beaglebone as a home automation device. There doesn't seem to be any solid reason why you wouldn't just use an old computer and an Arduino.

If you would like to learn about BeagleBone and home automation, I would recommend one of the following books by the same publisher:

"Building a Home Security System with BeagleBone" - Don't be put off by the small size of this book, the author, a "hardware guy," does a great job of packing a lot of useful information into a tiny space. Though the book is security-focused (as I personally feel that home automation should be) he still covers a lot of ground that equally applies to home automation, even entertaining the idea of controlling your lawn sprinklers from half-way around the globe with your mobile phone.

"BeagleBone Robotic Projects" - This is a great book that covers a lot of ground in a lot of detail. Though it's specific to robotics, home automation isn't really any different. If you already know a lot, this book is still a great reference book that details implementations for sensory, motor controls, programming, etc. This book could also show you how to take things to the next level in home automation with voice commands, voice responses, computer vision, etc. If you combined this a kinect camera, and you will have a complete smart home.

I'll be leaving reviews for these other books shortly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book for people new to the BeagleBone, embedded linux, or basic electronics 2. März 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author does an excellent job of explaining how to get started on the do-it-yourself path to home automation. This is a book I wish I had when I started working on embedded linux and the BeagleBone!

Home automation is not an easy topic. Especially at the level presented in the book. Using the BeagleBone to control the physical world is the combination of circuit theory, hardware, embedded linux, networking, and software development. The book is full of great examples (with code!) for working projects. It also provides good insight and helpful tips along the way. I especially liked the helpful tips scattered throughout the book. They provide really useful details on some of the more complex aspects of the topics presented.

Overall, the author does an excellent job of explaining how to get started on the do-it-yourself path to home automation. I think the author walks you through the topics in a careful and thoughtful manner. Each chapter builds on the previous ones and expands the foundation you will need for your own projects.

In short, this book will not tell you everything you need to know about home automation but it's certainly a great place to start.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Written for a Unicorn Audience 22. Februar 2014
Von T. E. Schlemmer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
After reading this book and working through a number of the chapters, I have mixed feelings. While this book caters to my knowledge and skills pretty well, I see it as more of a cookbook/reference type collection of semi-related tasks. The absolute beginner will probably be frustrated by their lack of Linux and networking proficiency, but the advanced user might be frustrated by a verbose level of explanation occasionally. Additionally, this really should be titled as a BeagleBone Black book.

I think the most satisfied readers will fall somewhere in the middle of a spectrum of experience and knowledge. For many readers, definitions and concepts may need to be learned elsewhere. Even so, I found myself asking the question "Why do it that way?" more than once.

It's a hard task to create a one-size-fits-all solution to teaching specialized technological concepts. I would like to see the chapters reorganized to allow for easier skimming over known concepts and increasingly advanced material as the chapter progresses. I found myself starting with the chapter summaries and working backwards to better understand a chapter. I really like a lesson plan approach to learning/teaching, and I think this material would benefit from that strategy.

This book has been valuable during the course of my home automation project (an Internet-controlled dog feeder), and the answers I still seek might be inside it. But it's impossible to know what you don't know. The primary resources I have used, however, are freely available tutorials on the web. But I like books, and this one has a place on my (e)shelf.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Covers the basics of using the powerful BeagleBone Black for home automation 3. Februar 2014
Von Flashforge Creator Pro Owner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book review represents a first for me. Why, you ask. Because this is the first book review of a book that I was involved with. Along with Raymond Boswell, I was a technical reviewer for this book. Looking at the finished product I am proud to have been involved. I see quite a few of my recommendations have been implemented and some other enhancements have occurred after seeing the drafts as well. So without further ado and with full disclosure let me tell you about this book.

What's in the book

This book is about using the BeagleBone Black (BBB) for home automation. The first chapter introduces the BBB and also gives a concise introduction to Linux for newbies. In Chapter 2 Juha jumps right in to the topic of blinking LEDs and reading buttons, both from the command line and from within Python programs. Chapter 3 introduces sockets and their use in Python. In the fourth chapter a server using sockets with ability to read light and temperature sensors is introduced. This chapter also shows you how to deal with analog sensors. Chapter 5 deals with periodic tasks, passive infrared (PIR) sensors, and the HD camera cape for the BBB. The final chapter is all about creating an Android application. The book concludes with a lengthy appendix covering topics such as advanced debugging, I2C and SPI interfaces, and security.

What I like most

The book does a really good job of explaining some complicated stuff to people unfamiliar with those technologies. Important issues such as button bounce are also discussed. Things are covered in just enough detail to educate without overwhelming the reader. As many of you might know, I am a fan of the BeagleBone Black (aka Raspberry Pi killer) and am glad to see people doing cool things with this great board.

What I like least

Nothing is perfect. Technology is always moving forward. I have had the experience with my own book where things change and scripts that worked a week ago no longer function. The book uses Angstrom Linux which is a pretty obscure distro to anyone who isn't into embedded systems. This is what ships with the BBB today, but it was just announced that future boards with ship with Debian in the coming months. The only other somewhat negative thing for me about the book is that I2C and SPI are described in the Appendix, but no devices using these protocols appear in the book. It isn't that you couldn't do this with the information in the book, but an example would be nice.

Who is this book for?

This book is perfect for anyone new to the BBB wanting to try their hand at interfacing this awesome hardware to the real world.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An <almost> decent book let down by lack of focus 3. März 2014
Von Javvad Malik - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I’ve had an interest in exploring the BeagleBone Black for some time now, therefore when I was given the opportunity to review Juha Lumme’s ‘BeagleBone Home Automation’ I jumped at the chance with visions of learning how to fortify my home automation utilising electronic cunning that would put Macaulay Culkin to shame.

The book has a nice, almost conversational tone to it which made it easy to read and provides decent introductions to both programming as well as hardware. However, after a promising start, the book seemed to veer off track. There are several sections which cover varying concepts which are good to know, but leave you scratching your head as to the relevance to home automation.

The biggest reason for it losing stars is the fact that there is little practical home automation information provided. There are several good examples of how to prove concepts on a small scale, however, the remaining implementation is left for the reader to work out. I’m not suggesting every scenario be covered; but even a little guidance as to how the reader could implement and take forward the concepts to a practical scale would have been very useful as you’re left feeling a little short-changed.

On one hand I was glad to see a section at the end which introduced security concepts – but on the other hand, I was disappointed that it seemed to be added at the end as an after-thought. Systems like home automation are reliant on being secure, therefore I would have preferred security be built into every chapter to help readers build secure systems from the outset.

All in all this is a good book for a beginner interested in learning the basics. However, it could have done with better focus and seeing implementations through to a more practical level.
