Vision

The following are a subset of incomplete ideas, but give a hint on what will be possible within the next years (even if not implemented by me).

 

Wide variety of hardware drivers – framework enabling easy integration of further drivers…

Low energy consumption…

Read sensor data from all devices – temperature, humidity, light, motion…

Control all actuators – turn on light, turn on radio, toggle light, sounds, key-lock…

Wireless communication via different channels – WiFi, bluetooth (LE), 433MHz, IR/visible light, sound…

Remote control the complete network – a gateway towards the internal ip network and forwarding towards internet…

Direct observation – lcd display, 7segment displays, TFTs, LEDs…

Direct control – buttons, complex menus…

Involve Logitech Harmony remote control features…

Self-addressing, scaling network P2P mesh (no central instance) with own addressing-scheme regardless of the actually used medium…

Service discovery and self explaining services…

Easy to use device location determination…

Synchronised time…

Deploy triggers into the network… If, then, else, delay, complete propositional calculus… Enable these triggers using some kind of generic logic…

Different computer interfaces – websites, Android app…
