A short openHAB video for maker faire


I did it again. I signed us up for the virtual edition of maker faire germany.
(June 18. https://maker-faire.de/)

One topic they wanted from us: please describe your project in a short video.
Instead of holding my face into the cam and give a 30sec short elevator pitch, I had the following idea.

  1. Scene
    A computer screen. Blinking cursor. A sentence like: Switch on the light in the kitchen. (perhaps with text-to-speech sound).

  2. Scene
    Kai or Yannick or someone else from this fantastic community in a close-up, switching the light in the kitchen and grinning at the camera.

3.4.5. Scene
The same applies to: Turn on the heating, What’s the weather like tomorrow, Turn on the TV, Is the dishwasher ready? Each time with a different community member taking over the manual task.

Last scene.
10th, 100th, 1000th openHAB people wave into a cam and show their love for the project.

Does that make sense?
If yes, are you a volunteer for that video?


I like the idea!

I would contribute to the last scene. :wave:

I could offer a short clip for the analog “Feed the cat” automation, if you are interested. :slight_smile:

Count me in. :wink:


I think the beginning of the last scene could be kai’s voice asking to set the scene to party mode. Then a bunch of people could do a webcam vid for you with led’s that start flasing in the background.
