We present the first results from long-term photometric observations carried out with the INTA-CAB 50-cm telescope in a fully robotic mode. The data belong to an ongoing programme for the photometric follow up of known transiting close-in giant planets. We describe the techniques used to generate differential light curves of the programme stars and discuss the photometric performance obtained over the first year of operation.
