|This is an easy tutorial to turn any Android tablet (no root required) into a posh DIY home automation touch panel. This is a cheap alternative to the expensive touch panels in swanky smart homes, and will control pretty much anything including the Broadlink RM Pro and the Broadlink blackbean. This is a simple setup using IFTTT, the RM plugin, Nova launcher and basic android widgets.
