Announcing Home Camp 4 “Hack the House”

September 1, 2011 at 2:46 pm 17 comments

It’s time for another event!

Home Camp brings together members of the technical community interested in using open systems and low-cost, often repurposed hardware to bring about a positive change in the way we use energy and appliances around the home.

With ever-increasing energy prices, the race is on to develop ways to utilise smart technology to help offset domestic energy consumption and lower carbon footprints.

Home Camp 4 invites those working with technology (software, hardware or web-based applications) to meet at an informal “unconference” in central London to offer presentations, workshops, mash-ups and hack sessions with the aim of sharing information and furthering the development of the open energy community.

Presentations this year will include the following provisional topics:

  • An Open Energy Monitor – Trystan Lea and Glyn Hudson
  • A Low Voltage DC Power System – Simon Daniel or Chris Wright, Moixa Technology
  • Nanode – an Open Hardware Success Story – Ken Boak, Arbour Wood Ltd.
  • Pachube – Open Data for Energy Monitoring  – Usman Haque, Pachube

The event will again take place at the Centre for Creative Collaboration, at 16 Acton Street, London, WC1X 9NG (nearest tube is 500m away at Kings Cross)
This bright, modern venue offers ideal facilities both for presentations and working in small groups.

Lunch will be provided in the form of a buffet. Refreshments, including tea, coffee, soft drinks and beer will also be available.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
