How do you make coffee?
- Fill the coffee maker with water
- add a new filter
- add coffee
- turn it on
- let it brew
- sometimes we set the timer to brew the coffee in the morning
Now try to automate it:
- add a module (Example: X10, Insteon or Z-Wave)
- program the computer
- does the above (except for the timer)
Not any easer is it?
To really automate the coffee we need the Coffee maker to fill with water automatically, to make sure there's a pot on the burner and we need turn it off when there is no pot or water in the pot.
