Great!  It's a lot of fun!  If you're new to Arduino make sure you check out the MySensors site for more info.  You will need a gateway to interface with the Vera.  If you are on UI7 I would recommend the Ethernet gateway.  It's a little more complex to build but it is easier to configure in Vera.  If you get stuck there are lots of helpful people on the mysensors forum.

Hi Everyone,

I made a couple of videos on how I recycled a couple of old cell phones to use as home automation control panels.  I'm using the ImperiHome App and the videos are about how to set everything up.  I split them into 3 parts because they cover different parts of using the app on a phone/tablet.  I love the ImperiHome app and I hope these videos will help other people love it too. 

Part 1: Setting up the ImperiHome App - http://youtu.be/5W6C4psWs-4
Part 2: Turn on/off screen using Tasker - http://youtu.be/qIh1xXGVXeI
Part 3: Install & Configure the ImperiHome Vera App - http://youtu.be/wF88xN_pO54

I have uploaded the Tasker project so you can import it into your phone/tablet and hopefully save some time creating all the tasks.

Hello Pete

Thanks for your post.
I have followed your guide and got Motion Detector working (i can hear sounds).
I have imported the xml into tasker but nothing happen. If I click play on the scene it turn the screen off and therefore I assume it works but nothing happen automatically.. can you help me on this?
thanks

I'm getting the same behavior as giove7223. I have all the pieces installed and configured and I hear an sound when the motion detector trips. But the screen doesn't automatically turn on. If I manually play the "screen off" Tasker piece it does turn the screen off.

I'm using an Amazon Fire tablet running the latest code (5.1.1 I think).

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Craig
