Home Automation Reloaded – Kai Kreuzer
With more and more Smart Home and IoT devices hitting the market, one of the primary wishes of users is interoperability. As many vendors still prefer silo offerings, walled gardens and business-driven alliances, this wish remains mostly unheard. Over the past 6 years, the open source project openHAB has become one of the most popular solutions that connects to a multitude of different systems, comes with powerful automation rules and provides a single user interface for all devices to address such interoperability needs. Many new concepts are being introduced in openHAB version 2, which is currently under development and based on the Eclipse SmartHome framework. In this talk you will get a sneak preview of its modularity and extensibility, which gives you the full power to tailor your smart home for your personal needs.
