In this blog you can read about the current barriers for the truly smart home automation, plus how the hub standardization and open API connectors are helping to make the smart homes a more realistic element of the emerging Internet of Things happening around us. A smart home is in fact a place that shows how much disposable income you have. Now imagine a house that schedules your thermostats and adjust according to the season or its peak usage or notifies you when your door opens or have motion sensors, etc.
Homeowners can now use smart home features so as to improve the security and save money by cutting off the devices that are not in use or tracks energy usage to improve your carbon footprint. Therefore, following are the points to support and to break barriers with APIs to smart home automation.
