Hey guys,

If anyone is interested in doing a floor plan like Neil has, I used iDraw on the iPad which has worked really well. It even has all the floor plan icons which you can use to put a little more details into the plan e.g Doors and windows. It allows you to save it as a PNG file which Neil tells me is the best format for the BMSLink and you can export it out to Dropbox to upload.

I am in now way affiliated with this app, I just wanted to share what has worked for me.

Thanks, I've not tried that - mainly because my wife has 'borrowed' my ipad (indefinitely methinks!).

Would be nice if you could post a screenshot to show us what it looks like with the BMS.

Ok will do, mine is still very messy as I have been preoccupied with other stuff, but I can post a screenshot of one of the floors created with idraw.

I know this is an old thread, but I made this using Homestyler.  Was a little fiddly to use, especially when it tried to help you snap to existing wall on other parts of the building, but it wasn't too bad.

That looks good, looks a lot more what an estate agent would use to create a plan. Nice one!!

Thanks! It's not bad for a free web-based tool. You can add appliances, work surfaces, cupboards, etc on to it.

You can even browse your plan in 3D, but not sure how much of a benefit that would be here. Didn't get the stairs to go downwards, but didn't spend much time on it lol.

It will certainly get you started!

What are you thinking of putting on sensor wise?

Unfortunately I can't connect any devices to the server yet. I've ordered an RPi2 and going to get the Zwave board for it. Waiting for 1.50 so I can plug in my RFXtrx 433 into the server directly rather than using a USB server.

Once I get these running, I'll be cooking with gas!! Very Happy

Haha good man, looking forward to hearing about it.

I have a couple other projects in mind so will see how the RPI update goes.
