Smart up your home to win a drone

We’re looking for your Smart Home solutions! Take part in our project contest and win great prizes!

Contest Brief

Is your home already smart or are you working on smart home solutions? We are looking for your ideas! Take part in our project “Smart Home Contest” and win great prizes!

Your project can be anything from the area of home automation. No matter if you want to start your coffee machine automatically or build a high end security system to protect your home. The only condition: Your home automation project has to involve a vision system, of course.

The project contest has two phases...

Phase 1: Send us your ideas until July 26, 2017. The Imaginghub team will then choose the 10 most exciting ideas to move forward to phase 2. If your idea is among them, you will then receive the necessary hardware to turn your idea into a real project. As for the hardware you'll get a Basler PowerPack dart USB for Evaluation, containing a Basler dart USB camera, a suitable lens, and a cable.

Phase 2: Start building your project! Once you’ve received the hardware, you can start building your application. Log in to the Imaginghub website, create a project page and document your development journey. Your smart home solution should be finished by November 24, 2017.

The following aspects are part of our ranking process:

  1. Innovation and novelty level: How innovative is your solution? Has it been done before?
  2. Level of creativity: How creative is your way of solving a given problem?
  3. Design and performance: Is your application running fast and stable? How clean is your code?
  4. The project's feasibility: Is it possible to actually build the solution?
  5. Project demonstration and completeness of documentation: Has the project been completely documented towards the final result?

If you like, you can also add images or videos of your project and its development process to present your solution.
