Who is this Book for?

This book explains state of the art smart home, building automation and Internet of Things technologies and demonstrates step by step how to apply them to real world projects. The toolset covered consists of tablets, smartphones, sensor equipped devices, the Internet and the latest wireline and wireless building automation standards.

You will be introduced to technology basics, planning and design principles, security and privacy considerations as well as implementation details and testing philosophies. Expecting no specific know-how upfront, the book is suited for both – the professional consultant as well as the technology loving hobbyist. After explaining the big picture and the key concepts of state of the art home and building automation, the book will walk you through the implementation of a concrete building automation and control project in a step-by-step manner.

At the end of each project phase you should have a real, working solution on your desk, which can be further customized and expanded as desired. No programming skills are required as prerequisite. Scripts are explained line by line, configuration settings step by step. Of course, if you have never written a short automation script or configured a DSL router, at some point your learning curve will be steeper than that of others. However, everything you learn will be based on open standard technologies, which you will be able to utilize in any other IT related project.

Technologies and platforms which are used in the project are: Wi-Fi / WLAN Telnet, HTTP, TCP/IP Z-Wave, a smart home communication standard ZigBee, a smart home communication standard KNX, a smart home communication standard Drools, an open source object oriented rule engine OpenRemote, an open source Internet of Things software platform IFTTT (IF This Than That), a cloud based Internet of Things control service Google Sheets, a cloud based spreadsheet service, part of Googles G Suite Google Apps Script, a scripting environment based on JavaScript for G Suite products macOS Linux Windows 10 / Java Parts of the project integrate consumer electronics devices, such as audio equipment from Denon and Marantz.

However, project and instructions are designed, so that that they can easily be adapted to other manufacturers. Be aware, however, that equipment, which is more than a few years old, probably will lack the required interfaces for smart home integration at the level which is being covered in this book, such as built in WLAN, Bluetooth, web server components, or “Wake-on-LAN” functionality. While not part of the concrete project described in the second part, the book also covers popular smart home solutions such as Apple’s HomeKit, Google’s NEST, Google Home, Samsung’s SmartThings or Amazon’s Echo.

 While they are not in the centre of the book, their integration with the described solution is discussed and explained. The technologies, design and planning approaches, test philosophies and security considerations discussed do apply to any smart home and building automation solution.
