Smart Home Development Made Easy Despite the buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT) there are still many devices, systems and protocols for home automation that cannot be directly hooked up to your wifi and used through IP. To enable smartphone apps to access them and to integrate them with other devices, a home gateway is required. Eclipse SmartHome is a flexible software framework for such home gateways. It was initiated by the popular open-source project openHAB, which connects to a multitude of different systems and comes with powerful automation rules and nice UIs. Its modular architecture guarantees simple extensibility. This session includes live hacking and you will of course see a smart home live demo that goes way beyond the standard use cases.
