This was a very informative article about this emerging technology. It got me excited about interconnecting devices throughout the home. Alas, there were no example circuits or links to pursue. Seeing how this is an Electrical Engineering site, it would have been very helpful if there were links to parts (maybe your own) or even just listing part numbers.

The use of visible sensors, specifically for glass break, is not necessarily a bad thing. Assuming they are tamper resistant from outside the protected area they can serve two purposes - detection and de-motivation at that point of entry. Aesthetics and connectivity costs are the more prevalent drivers for 'remote' sensing of the breakage.

Can somebody let me know about a cheaper capacitive or some other kind of water level sensor which won't be in direct contact with water. I need to automate the pump to fill the water in the overhead water tank.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for todays commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
