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, an IP gateway is required - if it connects to more than just one specific system, this is usually called a home gateway.
Eclipse SmartHome is a flexible software framework for such home gateways. Being initiated by the popular open-source project openHAB, the Eclipse SmartHome project leads the way from the niche to the mass market by fostering industry adoption and by introducing new concepts for setup and configuration procedures of such solutions.
In this webinar you will learn about the concepts of Eclipse SmartHome, what services it provides and how to build a customized solution with it.
