Social networking of the Smart Home
Abstract--Social networking on the Web has become an integral part of our lives. Merging of computing with physical things enabled the conversion of everyday objects into information appliances. This merging allows Smart Homes to offer new automation possibilities to their residents. We propose utilizing existing social networking infrastructures and their Web-based APIs in order to integrate Smart Homes to the Web, offering social status to physical devices. We exploit the functionality and the Web 2.0 technologies provided by Facebook to transform the interaction with the Smart Home into a shared, social experience. A preliminary technical evaluation indicates that our approach is feasible and it offers acceptable performance.
