  • When I woke up in morning, I already had about 100 github stars with over 50 upvotes on reddit and few of my friends gave really position feedback about it.
  • By the end of the day the stars were over 300 and suddenly they started increasing on each refresh and few minutes later, one of my co-workers told me that my project is 3rd on the Hacker News homepage.
  • By the time I write this post my Github repository has over 2500 stars, 129 forks and over 500 upvotes in the reddit posts combined.
  • The phone app is located in /phone-app folder, the server is located in /server.
  • High-power devices, such as LED strips, are powered via external (shared ground with the PI).

Viktor Kirilov’s personal blog about tech, home automation and engineering.

Since a kid I’ve been passionate about electronic and computers. Previously I’ve done different smallеr projects with arduino, like handbrake for my gaming steering wheel, custom LED tachometer for my car, voice controlled LEDs, flower watering system. Few months ago I bought Raspberry PI 3 and around all the IoT hype, I started automating my home. In the begining I didn’t even thought about making it public, but in the end I uploaded the source to Github. After most of my to-do list was done, I posted a link from my github repo to my facebook wall and 2 times in reddit, then I went to sleep. When I woke up in morning, I already had about 100 github stars with over 50 upvotes on reddit and few of my friends gave really position feedback about it. By the end of the day the stars were over 300 and suddenly they started increasing on each refresh and few minutes later, one of my co-workers told me that my project is 3rd on the Hacker News homepage. When I woke up next morning there were over 2000 stars, I found many positive emails in my inbox and bunch of comments on every post. After that my project led github trending for 3 sequential days. I basically couldn’t believe what just happened and I didn’t even intend to share my code in the begining. By the time I write this post my Github repository has over 2500 stars, 129 forks and over…
