Smart Home Day

SH logo

This year, the Eclipse Foundation joins efforts with the openHAB Foundation to host a Smart Home Day co-located with EclipseCon Europe in Ludwigsburg.

Taking place on the Sunday before the start of EclipseCon Europe (October 22), you can easily attend both events without the need for additional travel.

The Smart Home Day focuses specifically on Eclipse SmartHome-based solutions such as openHAB and QIVICON. It is an awesome opportunity for all community members to meet and exchange ideas.

There will be interesting talks from solution providers, core project maintainers, and other community members.
