Intel’s DIY Programmable Home Automation (Video)

You might already have many ‘smart’ items in your home such as door locks, smart lightbulbs or even a smart thermostat. If most of the things inside your home have some sort of connectivity, wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easier way to connect the devices? Not to worry, Intel is working on it.

The chip maker is working on a platform that will allow a do-it-yourselfer to program his/her devices to talk to each other, making the home work the way he/she wishes. The video below shows the example of a baby monitor which has been programmed to communicate with a music player if it detects that the child is crying. The player will then play some soothing music to put the baby back to sleep.

There’s an easy-to-use HTML 5 programming environment, and programmers can work on modules that will be available to end users. Users will be able to utilize a GUI editor to configure devices and connect them together.

Check out the video below to know more about what’s coming your way and you can leave your thoughts below.

What do you think of the idea of having a “smart home”, is it the future or just a niche?
