We are at the beginning of a new era of computing technologies where almost every device communicates with each other or the environment. It’s all about the Internet of things (IoT).
A major line of investigation is the smart home and about the benefits of having one and what it takes to make a home "smart". These solutions may make your life easier and could free more time. How cool is to be able to remotely control the temperature, lights, music or garage door?
The smart house system runs on a Brillo OS device which exposes standard peripherals’ APIs and can be controlled through the standard Weave interface using your Google account with commands like: open_garage_door, set_living_temperature, play_song or close_curtains.
For the moment we only implemented this solution on a miniature house, but we are looking forward to extend it to a larger scale and use it in real life.
