Hey guys i’m new to home automation and I’m looking for a few things to tinker with at home. I am after a way to signal my PC to boot automatically when I walk through the front door. Of course I could use the wake-on-lan functionality using my phone to trigger when it connects to wifi, however I rely on 4G connectivity for my phone as I have plenty of data to burn. Any ideas?
You got the Wake-On-LAN binding
You can use
Tasker on your phone to send an HTTTP rest request to OH when the home wifi is near
Or you can use a location service like
owntracks to trigger something in OH whenever you are inside a geofence.
Use OwnTracks to provide geofence triggers to OpenHAB, then you can have any number of things happen when you arrive/leave home.
