Where are the Chinese? The Chinese love the Internet of Things. At least, they love the firewalled internet of Chinese things with Chinese characteristics. About OpenRemote Choose Any Hardware. Design On Any Panel. Deploy On Any Platform. Control Everything. The Open Source Way. Will The Cloud be the Integrator in the Sky to Save Home Automation? A few weeks ago Amazon added support for the WeMo and Philips Hue lights to their Echo home speaker. Suddenly people who had the Amazon device plus the lighting products in their home could say things like, “Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights” and it would just work. Two disparate systems suddenly talking to each other, literally in this case, with little or no input or configuration from the user, all courtesy of the Cloud. Smart home bliss. The Echo now has its own IFTTT channel and late last year the Honeywell evohome heating system gained geofencing capabilities with the launch of its own IFTTT channel as well.

welcome The revolutions in web 2.0 and smartphones were enabled by the creation of platforms, and the widespread innovation they made possible. The disruptive jump in complexity brought on by IoT devices, combined with the requirement for their development at scale means embedded development must enter the platform era too. We are creating a modern full-stack operating system, designed for ARM® Cortex®-M-based MCUs; the worlds leading 32-bit microcontrollers that already sell in the billions. Inspired by the highly productive programming frameworks and tools of the web, and optimised for energy efficiency, built-in connectivity, security and reusable software components, it will become the foundation that enables widespread innovation in the Internet of Things (IoT) space.
