I'd like to start teaching one to make decisions to control the rest, so the "boss" would essentially need to do what I do with an App on my phone - ssh in to various other Pis and run an executable on that remote Pi. How does a smart person do this?
Maybe something like this
$ ssh remote-pi "command-to-run"
If that is not enough and you are trying to automate interactive processes you could try using expect
$ sudo apt-get expect expect-dev
$ man expect
If you just want buttons labeled open door, open window and so forth on your phone, that sounds like something for a web app. Maybe someone else who has experience with such things can fill in enough details to get started.
