"Home Station" package for home automation

Postby windar » Fri May 19, 2017 8:59 pm

Please consider developing a new package to address the increasing need for home automation.
There are a few third-party solutions (i.e Domoticz, Jeedom...) that currently work well on DiskStations... it would be pretty nice to have a Synology version that fits nicely into the DSM, accompanied by a "DS Home" mobile app.
Features :
- Support for market prodcuts and devices : Z-Wave sticks, Rfxcom transceivers, sensors, etc.
- Connectivity : Support of smart and connected devices (Nest, Netatmo...), data collecting & device control
- User interface : Smart and intuitive, DSM style...
- Security : Secure access (local and remote), on same level as DSM, with support of two-factor authentication (web & mobile app)

Jungle Power !
