Talking Control Your Home Automation Devices Using Android Wear (Video)

I finally figured this out. I have Insteon and Z-wave devices being controlled by an ISY controller (google these if you are not familiar). I basically used Tasker and the Mobilinc plugin to create a task to control my garage door. Then I created a tasker widget for that task on my phone. I then installed wearable widgets on my new LG G watch ( you guys could easily use the Gear Live) so any widget can be controlled on the Android Wear smart watch.

ie. This allows me to open or close my garage door with a single tap on my LG G watch or your Samsung Gear Live. You could control any home automation device or program you have directly from your smart watch running Android Wear!!!

This took my some time to figure out.

Hope you enjoy!!!

Nice!! I've been toying with the idea of buying a smartwatch, just not sure which one yet. This is the kind of stuff I want to do though, and control my philips hue lights.

Now... if we could come up with a way to remotely execute powershell scripts on a server, I'd be a happy camper!

Very cool, you can really start to get an idea of how powerful this can be when you start daisy-chaining things together like this. I use IFTTT to set temp on my nest and also use hue control to control lights. Pretty coo, but what you are doing here has a lot more potential. I have been using Locale for years, but it is time to learn and understand tasker.

Thanks again
