The Hydra project is part of the Cluster of European projects on the Internet of Things. The Cluster aims to promote a common vision of the Internet of Things.
Hydra Smart Home demonstration
This online demo shows a Smart Home application developed using the Hydra middleware and tools. It shows you a room layout with several controlable devices: A fan, a disco ball, a lamp and an electric toy train. In addition, the room contains several measuring sensors, including an energy meter.
The room with the controlable devices is shown on the camera picture below; broadcasting live from CNet in Dandaryd, Sweden on
Feel free to use the demo, but be aware that the demo uses Silverlight. You can start any device by ticking the appropriate box. You can also see the total power consumtion of the selected devices. Have fun!
We hope this demonstration serves as a inspiration, together with our Building Automation Scenarios, of the Hydra middleware capabilities. Please provide feedback, if you have any comments.
