I live in the Arizona Desert, Southwestern USA. It gets hot here, and my power bills got out of hand. This is a journal of my various efforts to bring this problem under control using the cheapest technology I could find. Saving money shouldn't cost a fortune.
While I'm waiting for parts to come in I started on my monitor for the whole house. This is where I'll incorporate all the controls and displays for the various devices. It's on the tab above and is far from done, but it is a nice start.
