Step Aside Google, Here Comes Drupal Home

Each day new smart devices enter the market available for sale to the public. We have choices of locks, bulbs, outlets, thermostats, and even shades that can be controlled remotely. We have assistants like Alexa and Google Home and Siri that can help us control our connected houses.


What if you could have your Drupal site serving the content those assistants consume? And what if that could be easily managed through a simple interface you already know?


In this talk you can learn how to use Drupal as a central information gateway that smart devices and home assistants can use. You'll learn that Google Home and Alexa can talk to Drupal to both consume and produce data to be served on your site.


In this session you'll learn:

  • How smart devices can connect to Drupal
  • How to use Drupal content to be served to smart assistants
  • How to use Drupal to control your home devices (like Philips Hue light bulbs)
  • What are the next steps on home automation with Drupal
