This site is a description of a smart home installation in Sesto Fiorentino, Tuscany setup as a second home to do home automation projects during my retirement, particularly, using My Home Bticino hardware and Apple Computers. Since 2003 we have done several projects and enjoyed the work, friendship, and help of many professionals, artisan, and people passionate about home automation. We benefited from their work, we greatly appreciate their friendship and trust, built over the many years of collaboration. This side was built using Sandvox
