Nov 11, 2016Video - Talk to your Home!Quicky presentation on Devoxx 2016
OpenHab is a free open-source framework to automate your home. With probably over 100 bindings available for OpenHab, you probably already own something you could automate with OpenHab. My own home is automated using KNX, but it is also connected to OpenHab for a simple UI and as a continuous playground. In this quicky I’ll show how easy it is to control your OpenHab installation via Siri. [Sorry Android-ers, the Google Voice API is not open yet, so this is (at the writing of this paper) not possible yet with Google Voice.] With a few small steps it is possible to control your home with some basic commands, but you can also ask your home for the status of things like the temperature in the living room. I’ll demonstrate live controlling my home from the Devoxx stage.

My home is mostly automated using KNX. Yes, that’s a bit expensive, but it’s wired, very flexible, it always works and is a truly open standard so I can choose from many manufacturers. I always get my hardware from http://knxgroothandel.nl.
