Perused the list, used search, and yet a home automation and/or home security site doesn’t seem to be available. Seems like something a bunch of techie types would want to share info about. Is it really not here or did I just miss it?
There is now the Stack Exchange site: Internet of Things.
Its help center defines as on topic, questions about:
- controlling, automating and sensing the environment using electronics ('smart devices'),
- consumer technology used for home automation,
- industrial applications of the Internet of Things, or
- the security, privacy, reliability and safety of these devices
I would take it that home security insofar as it uses internetworked things (like sensor nodes) will fit this too.
There is a new Home Automation site under development in the Stack Overflow Area 51 section. http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/55835/home-automation
To help make it a real site check out what needs to be done. At this point people need to upvote questions to 10 points or more. Help out if you want to make it real.
I looked into this a couple of months ago, and whilst there's a proposal in Area 51 it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. The Home Improvement site doesn't really feel like the right place for home automation questions, as they get diluted to irrelevance by all the (legitimate) painting and decorating type questions.
The closest thing I have yet found is this:
It's not as slick as a StackExchange site, but then what is (since they took it closed-source, anyway)?
