HomeDash is an attempt to make my home smarter, without paying an arm and leg. I’m also sharing as much as I can with others to help them do the same.

The HomeDash dashboard is a basic JavaScript application that runs in the browser and uses local storage in the browser to remember settings and preferences. No personal data is communicated back to the server. In fact, the page will only work while you are connected to your home network (unless you’ve configured it to do otherwise).

I’ve provided the application in this manner to save you having to download and install it, and have a web application setup, etc. etc. this is simpler and just as safe. You’ll also get any updates I make automatically!

Here’s HomeDash in action:
