Full how automation with dimmable lights

Home automation with dimmable lights and motion detection for every room. With the possibility to switch the motion control off for every room separately. In this plan also outdoor lights are included.

As can be seen in attached schematic the TAPAS provides every slave with supply to run there logic. So no extra supply is needed. With this supply, the slave makes sure that the logic levels are up to standard again.

The setup of the system will be as shown in the attached image.

    Hi Bram,

    Thank you for the submission.

    It would be great if you can provide detailed schematic, an implementation plan and most importantly how TAPAS board fits in your idea. Please reply at the earliest as the deadline is soon approaching.

    Pleas keep in mind, that the TAPAS is a "48V, 3-phase GaN power stage with on-board filters." (https://github.com/SDI-SoftwareDefinedInverter/TAPAS/blob/master/README.md)

    Best Regards,

    Stefan @ TAPAS Team

    Hi Bram,

    thanks for the diagram.
    Nonetheless, as we went through your pitch we are not sure if your idea fits the criteria of the TAPAS challenge. Can you come up with another pitch?

    Best,
    Nora @ TAPAS team
