Rating: 0 of 5

The internet is a vast connected network of computers that has become an essential utility in all our lives. Add to that arrays of sensors and actuators which interact with the physical world, and you have the Internet of Things. One very tangible manifestation of this is the connected / smart home.

But all this technology is nascent, and dozens of competing standards exist. This talk is going to look at where we currently stand with IoT when it comes to the realm of home automation. It will explore the standards and vendors at play, the approaches you can take, and the battle for your home that will play out over the next decade.

And just when you thought all was lost, we'll introduce you to Home Assistant, and open source community that's emerged as our next best hope to working solutions in this space. [209]
