home assistant integration

home automation choices is a minefield area .... 


IFTTT is a bit hit and miss on providers and will it last?


Given the news about shut down of other cloud services from providers like NEST group, leaving people with bricked home hubs only 18 months old. And a sudden announcement from IFTTT themselves as they try and monetise their services  


news:

https://blog.pinboard.in/2016/03/my_heroic_and_lazy_stand_against_ifttt/



Has anyone though about providing some sort of integration with these guys:


https://home-assistant.io/


Nothing to do with me personally but I've been looking at installing this on my synology NAS so that my home hub is:

1: inside my home network

2: controls any sort of peripheral including my own that I build to my specification

3: not dependant on cloud, but can connect and interact with it as required

4: 'owned' by me and can be modified by me and expanded as required

5: once stable can just be left to run


This looks like a much better long term solution as there is a real feel that IoT and 'free' cloud based services may not be viable long term as groups like IFTTT suddenly try and get money from their hard work (understandable, but why cut off your first free customers by killing the old access methods and forcing new API on them?)


I understand this sort of task is a lot to ask but if you can provide us with some APIs and a stronger framework than you web based app builder I'm sure people can do it for themselves?

At this moment we are intensively working on SmartThings native integration to make LaMetric a Smart Home Display 

and also working on Local API for notifications, designed for Smart Home systems.

Here you can get more information on this topic:

And in future you can expect that integration with other SmartThings services will be possible too. 

So LaMetric will improve your experience of using the smart home systems.


Hello,


Is it possible, using the Google Assistant SDK, to turn the Lametric in a Chromecast/Google Assistant gear?


Thanks!
