Richard Green joins us to catch up on smarthome news, and there’s a lot of it! Google introduces a home voice interface, Tony Fadell is out, and Staples retreats from the connected home. We also run through some of the new products out in stores these days.
We invite you to join Richard on stage at the Smart Kitchen Summit with representatives from Amazon, Moen, WeMo, Williams-Sonoma, and Zonoff talking about how they’re bringing the smart kitchen to consumers today and in the future.
HomeSeer gets a nod in the smarthome controller space, SmartThings' Dropcam integration causes some angst, and DMZ colleague Chris Barnes seeks advice on how to get started when considering automation options for a smart apartment.
Nest makes an unexpected announcement about the Protect smoke alarm, and Mike Harris of Zonoff joins Richard to talk about the ecosystems they're building and powering behind big-brand home control and automation solutions.
On this delayed look back at CES, Josh Pollard and Richard explore some of the more interesting products for the DIYer's automated home. But not before spouting a few conspiracy theories in the wake of Google's intent to purchase Nest Labs.
