Next meeting: Tuesday, 13 May, 2014
First Half Hour at 6 PM
Main Presentation at 6:30 PM
Topic: Taking Control of Your House with Siri
Siri's a couple of years old now and has gone from being a petulant teen to being a useful adult. Through the use of some commonly available accessories and powerful scripting tools, Siri can do much more than just tell you if it's raining outside -- it can actually control physical devices.
In this tech talk, TUAW blogger and editor Steve Sande demonstrates how to set up your favorite iOS device to control the Internet of things, with and without Siri’s help. Through the use of connected devices available from SmartThings, Revolv, Belkin WeMo and a number of other manufacturers, it’s easy to take control of your world.
Steve will use these devices to demonstrate how to take control of your house from lights to your coffee pot to your garage door. I know you will be at this meeting!
We'll see you there.
