    Until you realise you've just glued a dud DS1820 into a PIR and have to hack it out :roll:
    Deano, I am about to use some DS1820's and have been deciding how to hide/mount them !.

    Do you get a true reading with them mounted in your PIR's?

    Have you mounted them in any thing else?

    I tried mounting my DS1820 sensors near the ceiling but found the temperature gradient too much. You can compensate for this but it all depends how good your insulation is. It also takes longer for the sensor to react if you cover them over.

    I now mount them using table lamp cable clamps (less than 1 - B&Q Warehouse) where I can. This one is mounted on a architrave blank plate in one of my rooms. You just tighten the ring and it clamps the sensor nicely.

    Hi all

    I have used the Honeywell Hometronic system and do the following with it:-

    temperature compenstated control of boilers for efficiency / control of hotwater.

    Zone control of radiators using wireless rad controller 10 zones.

    lighting control using HD and HS modules using polished chrome push button switches.

    Daylight tracking for control of exterior lighting via a HS switch module.

    Control via TV using Honeywell interface and Phillips pronto remote control.

    Interface with Ademco intruder detection system with keyfob arming. When system is armed it signals the homtronic system puting it into away mode. This provided energy saving and random centralised control of lighting to simulate presence.

    The system works well and is now being expanded to control garage doors and front gates via the security system.

    if anyone wants any infor then mail me or contact Konstructiv Ltd on 07976 848876.

    I'm after controlling my heating via a web interface on my home network. I know what I need to switch the heating on and off with a low voltage signal (relays etc) and also have some Dallas temp sensors with a 1 wire Serial adapter.

    I need help with interfacing between the computer and the relays on the cheap, and tieing everything together software wise. I have no programming experience apart from a small amount of HTML and Basic.

    Thanks in advance

    For your info:
    I found a webbased domotica controller, called FieldCommander,
    that enables linking the Ademo Microtech (now Honeywell)
    intruder detection system (also called Galaxy system).
