[The project is] called to life by the need to solve technological limitations that home automation (aka domotics) is facing today. Nowadays our houses are furnished with numerous devices like appliances, lighting systems, alarms, irrigation systems, smoke and gas detectors, heating, cooling, audio, video systems and much more. There is only a problem, well, a big problem: those devices use different standards and they can’t easily communicate with each other.
The aim is to connect your house to the web with a clear and simple set of web services and to enable all devices to communicate with each other. Moreover, everybody is allowed to create new services on top of Lelylan.
What we aim to do is to map every device to a unique URI which will provide control over it. When such a connection is done, technological limitations disappear and devices become identifiable only through their functionalities.
Let’s keep an eye on Lelylan then!
