Internet of Things (IoT), home automation, & smart homes – A Getting Started Guide



Want to bring your house into the modern “smart everything” age? Here’s a “cheat sheet” guide I wrote on getting started with home automation and IoT (Internet of Things):

I plan on keeping the guide above updated on a regular basis so bookmark the link and come back to it for the latest info.

Working with home automation is a very rewarding experience. You get to see some very tangible evidence of how it helps your household. Working with enterprise IoT, especially around industrial IoT (IIoT) uses cases, is even more interesting to me. If you’d like a write up on a “how-to” that’s enterprise focused please leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can whip up. 🙂
