In a weekend participants will be able to prototype their idea thanks to the consultancy of subject matter experts and to pre-commercial prototypes that will be made available by the Energy@home Member Companies: the connected whitegoods of Indesit Company, the smart meter of Enel Distribuzione, the home gateway and the service platform of Telecom Italia, the NFC development system of STMicroelectronics, the home automation devices of Flexgrid and Urmet.

The Hackathon is dedicated to the Smart Home, here meant as an eco-system of communicating devices and integrated value added services for the end customer. An eco-system that integrates the management systems of safety, lighting, comfort , whitegoods, energy in new and effective ways of entertainment and consumer engagement.

Try to imagine your ideal SMART HOME… What it should do, what it should like? Try to use the whitegoods, the smart meter, the broadband gateway and all the devices that we put available in the Hackathon and try to make a prototype of your idea. Try also to imagine the value proposition and a business model that can support your idea.?

The JEMMA? software on the home gateway allows you to interact with all the devices by using simple REST/http calls that allows your web applicatio, as an example, to control the state of a lamp, change its colour, open a door lock, set the cooking program of the oven and know how long it needs, monitor the energy consumption of the house...
