Smart home setups are as heterogenous as their users, whose desires, expectations and habits are highly individual. Eclipse SmartHome addresses this situation at various levels. It is a very flexible framework to build tailored smart home solutions that are easily extensible and customizable. End users of such solutions have the possibility to set up personal automation logic to cover their specific use cases.
Such automation logic bring the real smartness into the home. If it is left to the users to create them for their own home only, a lot of potential is waisted as everybody has to undergo such efforts. Being able to share those ideas and results would unleash the true power of the community.
The new Eclipse IoT Marketplace comes to the rescue! Its integration in Eclipse SmartHome allows everybody to publish and share rules for certain use cases. Those rules can be browsed by other users and instantiated by the click of a button to create an individual smart home setup quicker than ever before.
In this talk you will see how easy it is to create a custom marketplace-enabled packaging of Eclipse SmartHome and what cool use cases the community came up with already.
