Smart home automation devices are on the rise. You could always buy the right ones for your home or create yours. Bluz can help. It is an Arduino-like cloud-connected, Bluetooth LE development kit that you can access from anywhere in the world thanks its connection to the cloud. The Bluz connects to the Internet through gateways. You will be able to use an iOS or Android device to connect to your Bluz.
Bluz integrates into the Spark environment, so you will have access to the Spark tools. You can either write code to control your Bluz or use Tinker to control it from your smartphone or tablet. Bluz offers IFTTT integration and an API to let you control your hardware using any programming language. Did we mention that your data is encrypted?
