Another Gateway overview and example implementation

Check out this video from John (his youtube channel here) who implemented a custom home automation system of his own, based on my gateway solution. He has done a little script editing to augment and add to the functionality (new metrics and events) already given via metrics.js. I am looking forward to see more of the details of his implementation and especially the hardware. He mentioned something cool which I initially envisioned as a use case when I designed the hardware but never implemented this feature on my own SwitchMotes: using the unused status LEDs (and button?) of a SwitchMote to display the status of his GarageMote. He also added a sonar sensor to his garage mote to detect whether there is a car parked or not, this could be a really cool addition to a GarageMote. The video also gives an overview of how the gateway and end nodes interact. If John will create more follow up content I will post it wherever appropriate. Thanks John for sharing this!
