  • Motivation for the project
  • Introduction of the project
  • Problems Statement
  • Proposed solution to achieve my goal
  • Result
  • Conclusion
  • Future work to be done
  • Suggestions and Questions
  • When I first started staying in the cabin I needed light
  • kerosene lamp; not enough light
  • Coleman lantern good light, but with the light came heat which was not needed in August.
  • From this came the wanting the ability to be able to have electric lights.
introduction cabin
Introduction - Cabin
  • I built the cabin last year in my back yard then moved it to Franklin County.
  • Lumber yards
  • Electric to power my tools
  • I designed it in sections to make it easy to move using only wood screws and 3/8” machine bolts.
introduction cabin contd
Introduction – Cabin contd.
  • Electric lights in the cabin first I needed away to provide electricity to the cabin, electric lights don’t work to good with out it.
  • Using 12 volt marine batteries and a 12vdc to 120vac 110 watt inverter.
  • Researching into devices for controlling lights
introduction x 10
Introduction – X-10
  • The web provide the information about X-10. There devices operate on the “Powerline” Interconnection Technologies.
  • Is a communications protocol that allows compatible home networking products to talk to each other via the existing electrical wiring in the home.
introduction x 10 contd
Introduction – X-10 contd.
  • The home automation line consists of “controllers“ and ”receiver” modules.
  • The X-10 modules are plugged into household outlets or even mounted wall switches.
  • With the X-10 standard, you can literally walk into a nearby electronics store and purchase all of the necessary equipment required to automate your home.
introduction basic stamp
Introduction – Basic Stamp
  • The web also provide the information on which Micro Controller to use.
  • The Basic Stamp 2 as built in commands that can output signals to X-10.
  • Though hole OEM Basic Stamp 2 kit was half the price as the same micro in surface mounted.
introduction basic stamp contd
Introduction – Basic Stamp contd.
  • The OEM kit came with all the parts needed.
  • It is programmed with its own language (PBASIC).
problem statement
Problem Statement
  • Problem was how to get the X-10 signal off the power line to the Basic Stamp.
  • Using a TM751 Daughter board.
problem statement contd
Problem Statement – contd.
  • TM751 mother board blow
  • The X-10 Wireless receiver (TM751) can only receive signals
  • Wall switch (WS467) is only a receiver.
problems statement contd
Problems Statement – contd.
  • Timing in the Stamp program to get the lights to work.
  • X-10 needs a True Sine Wave to work, not a Modified Sine Wave.
proposed solution
Proposed Solution
  • Looking on the internet for ideals or possible solutions to my lighting problem.
  • Designed the control circuit schematic
  • Wrote the Program for the Stamp
proposed solution contd
Proposed Solution – contd.
  • X-10 signal to the stamp was the use of relays.
proposed solution contd15
Proposed Solution – contd.
  • Read the inputs from the X-10 devices and give the desired outputs.
  • Prevent the motion sensor from timing out then turning off the light.
proposed solution contd16
Proposed Solution – contd.
  • Motion Sensors from turning the lights on when you do not want them on.
  • I was able to get everything to working on my project that was in the light controlling part.
  • Mounted lights in cabin; Inside, Outside
results contd
Results – contd.
  • Completed the soldering the basic stamp 2 OEM kit.
  • Completed wiring circuit on the bread board.
  • Completed writing stamp program in PBASIC.
  • Completed building box with all devices installed.
  • Completed building display board.
  • Completed testing and trouble shooting.
  • Learned about the “Powerline” Interconnection Technologies
  • Learned how to use it to automate a home
  • Learned how to make household devices more convenient and secure to use.
conclusions contd
Conclusions – contd.
  • Basic Stamp
  • Learned setup and working
  • Programming
  • Experience from Capstone Course
  • Groups
  • Research
future work
Future Work
  • I plan on buying a true sine wave inverter to be able to power my light control system by marine batteries.
  • I plan to buy a solar panel system so I do not have to haul the batteries every time I am coming or going from the cabin so I can charge them.
  • Plan to install the project in the cabin.
