HomeOS

I’ve just seen this new concept from Microsoft Research.

http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/homeos/

This type of thing is fascinating to me. Using the .net framework to control equipment/cameras at home. Things like switching the light off after a certain point at night and it turns off the TV/AMP etc. too.

I currently use my NAS to monitor a camera I have at home, but you are limited to what that software allows you to do; with the HomeOS system, you can do what you like as long as you can code it.

I could also create my own “Devices” using the Gadgeteer system and link them into the HomeOS server.

I cannot wait for a CTP to become available for this.
