Yesterday a friend invited us over to his home and showed us his automation system.
He purchased a vera system and is using a great android app called imperihome. This is a well thought out and customizable interface that can control his entire system. It shows the local weather forecast and It also gives him the ability to integrate his non HA systems like stereos onto one device. The app gives him the ability to play Pandora and other media types through this app.
Can someone tell me how we can get this to work with SmartThings? From doing a quick look at the app it appears it only needs an open local port to the hub and maybe an API.
