Modernising George – a home automation user interface

Abstract [en]

Home automation is growing faster than ever, incenting ever-more capabilities meanwhile users raise their expectations. Several flaws and latencies have been discovered with the user interfaces available for HomeSeer home automation. Thus, George was developed to address these. A combination of issues, mainly high latency, blocking I/O requests and hard coded references led to user abandonment, and instead an entirely new solution was created – based on the same fundamental concept – using modern techniques for superior performance. Humans are constantly seeking ways of easing problems and the home automation market is growing rapidly. Meanwhile, software developers are sharing ever-more reusable modular functionality across the Web. Thus, systems can now be developed relatively quickly as well as maintained and extended continuously. This has allowed George to address the initial issues and provide a usable and high performant solution in its place. George is not yet working at full capacity but satisfies the objectives of the project. Furthermore, suggestions of future work to further address the everyday events of home automation users are discussed. Though the software is only compatible with HomeSeer, its concept and approach may be shared across the fields of software development and user interaction.
