@wpoll Well that is cool! Like they say, if you have thought about it somebody has already done it. I have one fridge, my furnace, air conditioner and air exchanger all running on Arduinos. I can vouch for how cheap and robust everything is, but don't have the time to do the Ibus. Aren't you a software guy?

I'm a tech guy - hardware, software, but I struggle with wetware...!

I'm going to read up on this some more on this, out of professional curiosity if for no other reason. But I know that reading won't be enough and I'll have to start playing with a setup, just to see it work.

But I'm very cautious with mods etc. - I don't even goof with much coding etc. - what little time I have to work on the e53 is spent maintaining it, not modding it.

Time is the issue isn't it? And we ain't getting any younger....

Yeh, I couldn't help but dig around a bit more, slipped, and ended up ordering a couple of the TH3122 interface chips! Doh!

Then downloaded some of the sketches! Funny that the example codes are focused on control of the sound system except for the last one that is the command to turn off signals as side lights!
