I need to find a gateway that I can build some mobile apps to communicate with as part of a proof of concept. It needs to have API's that we can program to.
Use case: Get a gateway for the house that I am able connect directly to Have the following automated utilities: Lights, Camera, Pet Feeder Perform two way communication from the mobile application ~ informed that someone has set off the video, change the thermostat, feed the cat when I dont get home
The key point is that it is a smarthome gateway that we are able to write to.
Just looking at some information on HomeSeer is that a viable option?
What I really want to do is have the wireless router/gateway at my home. Have that ability to program some apps that are able to talk to it no matter where I am but has some level of security.
Need the camera to send to me a picture of who is at the door Need to be able to adjust the temp in the house Need to feed the cat when i am at the pub
Build the apps myself and put my own logo and pictures on it....is this possible with any of the systems out there today or do they all have you go through a home company server to connect to the smarthome devices?
