Ok, I know this is not a simple task. BUT, has there been any thought to a SmartApp or integration with home entertainment systems such as XBoxOne or PS4?
As for XBoxOne:
- XboxOne can currently control TV through OneGuide, but if we could use the voice command to control things in SmartThings as well, then we have voice control over the house (at least in range of the XboxOne).
- (Potential security issue here but maybe there is a way to secure it) The Kinect sensor could also act as live video feed to the living room, plus offer certain control of the house from gesture recognition.
I know they have been falling behind Sony due to the price point, but an integration with SmartThings and XboxOne would tip the scales and help fully integrate the home experience.
It may be wrong to suggest this developer friendly SmartThings work with Software Giant Microsoft but Microsoft has been leaning toward growing its external development community lately as well.
