Home Automation

I am in the process of creating Home Automation Project using Raspberry Pi and ESP8266, to know the environment inside the house and control the energy usage accordingly. I would love to use TAPAS board as part of that system to measure and control my home energy usage along with home automation. E.g. Controlling Lights, fans, Heating depending on the room temperature, brightness and motion.
