Smart lighting: part of the "Internet of Things"

In this talk, we'll show how ordinary Internet of Things becomes extraordinary if they play well with other devices and/or services. Also, we'll show how smart lighting can play along with other device (TV or other audio device) using audio watermarking technology to sync those devices.

Full abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) can be used in almost unlimited number of scenarios, from large industry machines to small devices and appliances in your home. There are a few ways to personalize the Internet of Things and put consumer/customer in the driving seat.

In this talk, we'll show how ordinary Internet of Things becomes extraordinary if they play well with other devices and/or services. We'll demonstrate how mobile application can be used to steer smart lights at your home.

Instead of just talking and showing source code(well, source code is an inevitable), we have prepared live demo with Phillips Hue(personal wireless lighting). We will use light scripts that go far beyond ambient light to control individual and groups of lights where we can change colors, transitions and brightness, all from the mobile application. This is already cool but we'll go even further and show how Phillips Hue lighting can play along with other device (TV or other audio device) using audio watermarking technology to sync those devices (your mobile device and TV).

This talk and demo will show to the audience how they can control wireless IoT device(s) from mobile applications. Also, they'll see how you can have immersive experiences using 2nd screen applications that will interact in real time with their content when played on the TV set.
