Show us your geek cred - a thread

You’re spending this month learning about our Head Geeks in our February Monthly Mission, but we’d like to learn what makes you geek out. Tell us a story about a project, aspirational dream, or just something you fan girl/boy over that shows us what type of geek you are.

TL;DR: tell us you’re a geek without telling us you’re a geek #TheTellMeChallenge.

To earn a chance to win the Arc Star Floating Speaker, answer the prompt above*. To be a good THWACKster, comment on and/or give kudos to your fellow geeks’ contributions.

*Maximum one entry per person. Terms & Conditions apply.

  • My latest fixation began last month with smart home and automation. So far I have been testing the water with a samsung smartthings hub, 5 or 6 smart bulbs, 2 smart plugs, a motion sensor and an echo dot. I've started with replacing the bulbs in the most used rooms with the smart bulbs and setting up some routines such as morning/night time and TV time. I'm experimenting with the motion sensor for the garage lights so I'm not falling over everything getting to the switch to turn the current light on.

    Plans for the future are replacing the bathroom lights with smart bulbs and a motion sensor that will automatically switch on when someone enters the bathroom if its getting dark outside and if its late at night will only switch on a dim red light with a press button to turn all bulbs on white if needed.

    I seem to loose interest in things after a while so who knows I may have got bored by the time I come to the bathroom
