So this is happening, the Cousins family is building their house!
As many of you know, this house is going to be pretty full of technology. I thought as I'm planning everything I would start a series of posts on the awesome things I'm doing tech wise. I get many questions about how to accomplish various tasks, so hopefully this will help you. Some of the highlights are going to include:
- Using Plex to setup your own video "cloud" like Netflix.
- Home theater design and building.
- Home networking with multiple wifi access points for great coverage indoors and outdoors.
- Home automation. Get your doorknobs talking to your lightbulbs.
- Using a file server to improve reliability and portability.
- Backing up your data. You must do this.
- Setting up a VOIP system for cheap phone calls.
- Tips for building a new house.
Strap in and come along for the ride!
