For my music I'm using Sonos speakers. This is play 1 and streams music over Wi-Fi . At last for security I have this
indoor camera from Axis. In order to control all these devices, I need one application for KNX, one for Philips Hue, one for Fibaro, one for Sonos, and one application for Axis Camera. So for example in order to go to bed at
night, i have to turn off KNX lights using a KNX switch, or a mobile app. To turn off Plilips Hue Lights, using Philips Hue app. To turn off Fibaro Smart Plug, using Fibaro app. using so nose up and activate alarm
function of camera using axes camera up this doesn't give me the feeling of a
smart home of course all this device are smart but it wouldn't be great to turn
off all lights to stop the music and activate the alarm by just pressing a
signal button or by using one mobile application for that reason we need an
application that can support a big range of smart devices and protocols it will
be easy to use and it will not require any programming skills that's why in
this episode we will use a radium light Iridium light is a product from iridium
mobile where you can create a project of different smart devices and control your
smart home using one application that runs on iOS Android and Windows devices

set the function to toggle object send value and stop subject are created create one group address with named
Philips you open clinics about 777 parameter and add a one bit data point
with named Philips you now links and value and status object of
the connect streets with Philips your group address we put cent value and
status object to the same group address because we will not use an actuator but
could update the status so the status of the KNX rates will be updated by the KNX
rates itself link one bit data point of about 777 with a Philips your group
address at last download the new changes to the connect

smart plug now that we have all our KNX devices
change the name and the location of every device the smart button I don't want to be
