Google Chases Home Automation with Android. Media Design Associates Already There with the iPhone/iPad.

 

On Tuesday Google announced their intention to have every appliance in your home as a potential accessory, or network of accessories for your phone.

The goal of the Android @ Home framework is to enable your Android device to function as a home automation controller.

Their plan is for the phone to be able to connect to wireless lighting products, bulbs and switches, thermostats, washing machines, game consoles, etc. They claim devices that can communicate with Android should all be available in stores by the end of the year.

Staying within the spirit of Google’s passion open source software, Google promised “It will be completely open for developers to explore and write their own applications.”

In our opinion, creating a device like the android that can communicate with controllable devices like lighting and thermostats is the easy part. Replacing all the light switches, thermostats, etc. with controllable devices is the larger (and more expensive) task.

Google is onto something. As those of us who can control all of these features from our phones have discovered, it is very cool, and very handy.

However, if you want to use your iPhone or iPad to control your lights, heat, security, TV, home audio, view cameras, open doors, etc., call us. Media Design Associates can deliver all of these features today.
