A look inside my switchboard

Have a look inside one of the switchboards in my house, where I’m linking Arduino-based home automation devices into the switchboard for software control of just about everything.

Water and electricity don’t mix

Early this year my family was flooded out of our house when water came through the ceiling during renovations, and we’ve been living in the recently built workshop at the back of the garage ever since. Well, last night the garage flooded as well. Oh joy. And to make it even more interesting, I learned a lesson never to leave running electrical equipment on the floor. Or to stand next to it, in water, while it’s running.
