Here is a recent recording of a new talk I recently gave at North Dallas Developers on my experiences building and maintaining a smart home.

Here is a high level overview of what is covered in the presentation:

  • First Steps
    • What are your Goals?
    • Existing products and ecosystems
  • Research
    • Future technologies
    • Are you the product?
    • How-to choose a contractor
    • Costs
  • Accessibility
  • Breaking Changes
  • Companies will break you or sell your data
  • Smart Home Hubs
  • Automations


Any feedback is greatly appreciated on how I can improve this talk. I had been wanting to give one on smart homes for a while so decided to create one over the weekend and present on it. Do you like the format? Was it helpful?
