HouseMon – about the ‘default’ decoder circuit

In this post, I’ll cover the anatomy of the ‘default’ decoder circuit provided with the current build of HouseMon. After we are done, you should have a reasonable understanding of its current capabilities and function. I’ll also allude to some

Your use of HouseMon 0.9+

HouseMon 0.9.x is still evolving, but is already cross platform enough to support the basics across the most widely use operating systems. It is very important for any future work, to determine where we should donate our free time. An

HouseMon 0.9.x on OS/X Mavericks (Binary Installation)

In prior posts I covered a binary installation of HouseMon 0.9.x on Linux and HouseMon 0.9.0 on windows. In this post we will do a similar installation, but for Mac OS/X. I will be installing on OS/X 64bit Mavericks. Like

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.12

Here we are at circuit 12. Its going to build upon what we did in circuit 11. A word of caution: don’t go racing ahead, this is the first tutorial where you will be required to do something other that

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.11

We have touched upon ‘tagged’ messages in an earlier tutorial. In this tutorial, we will expand our coverage of ‘tagged’ messages. We will be using 2 new gadgets, ‘EnvVar’ and ‘AddTag’. Other than the two new gadgets, we are back

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.10

In circuit tutorial 09 we ended up with 2 duplicate sets of messages. One set of messages was specifically sent to ‘nowhere land’ which left us again with one set of messages to deal with. We chose to keep them

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.09

This circuit tutorial (09) continues where circuit tutorial 08 left off. We have a circuit that is using 2 distinct .Out pins from a FanOut gadget to provide duplicate messages. These are wired to a ‘Printer’ and a ‘Pipe’ gadget

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.08

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial 07 introduced the ‘Fanout’ gadget. This tutorial (08) will incrementally build on that circuit. We have added another ‘Pipe’ (Lines 23-23), and given out ‘FanOut’ 2 pins this time, .Out:pin1 is as before, taking the ‘FanOut’ output

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.07

In circuit 6, we introduced the ‘Delay’ gadget. It delayed its input by a provided ‘duration’ before emitting it onto its .Out pin. Today we introduce the ‘FanOut’ gadget. FanOut is a little ‘special’ in that its .Out pins a

HouseMon Circuits Tutorial-1.06

In this circuit tutorial we are going to look at the concepts of delays. If you ever used jeenodes or arduino’s (if your reading this then I am sure you have) you will have wanted to flash an LED. There
