Logitech Looks To Smart Home Integration With Harmony API
Logitech states the API will provide developers access to over 270,000 entertainment and smart home devices, allowing for the creation of “innovative smart home experiences that include entertainment devices”.
It will allow developers to add features such as voice, gesture, touch and presence-driven experiences to smart home control interfaces.
Logitech is initially working with companies including IFTTT, SmartThings, Ubi, Myo, ivee and Playtabase, stating more developers will be announced in the near future.
“Before the Harmony API it was extremely difficult for developers to create smart home entertainment experiences because of the vast diversity of protocols that controlled devices in the living room and the metadata needed to keep the devices in sync,” Logitech stated in a blog post.
“This is a problem Harmony has solved, and we wanted to open our platform to the smart home ecosystem.”
