Yes, providing the device provides it's own control infrastructure. The model is (roughly): Device connects to a gateway Gateway exposes an API which supports a variety of 3rd party systems Control messages are sent from each system which are unaware of the other systems The exception to this model might be where a device uses one of your system hubs to ...

Yes, it's perfectly possible. As and example, I have a set of IKEA Tradfri lights that are controlled by Alexa and Google Assistant at the same time. If I had an Apple device I could add Homekit support at well. The limiting factor is which of the systems the device manufacturer chooses to support.

A Full sized Raspberry Pi ( not a Pi Zero or Pi A) with more than 1 USB port can not act as a USB device. This is because to get 4 USB ports the USB controller is hard wired to a USB hub on the board. This means that when you plug the iPad into the Pi the iPad will act as the peripheral, not the host a it would when you plugged a printer directly into the ...

I'm guessing your best bet is actually using BLE beacon and notifications. Why? Because there are very few things that can wake iOS from backgrounded mode, and the list is even more limited if you can't use internet. Beacon and location services is one of them. Here's a good article that talks about how to do this over BLE with all the gotchas. But ...

This is exactly what BLE beacon technology does. It requires an app* on the device to tell the phone to listen for the broadcasts and then act accordingly when it receives one. Beacons have a normal range of approximately 10m * An app is required because otherwise this would be a truly horrific way to force advertising on people. Before Google gave up on ...

Lots of single-board computers support android in their BSP. It's often less porting effort than Ubuntu since the SoCs generally have mobile as a primary market. If you need it, this can give you more processing power than the more common Raspberry Pi 3. For example, the LeMaker HiKey which is an 8 core A53 with up to 2GB of RAM. Other options worth looking ...

The fundamental structure of the LiFX system, and roughly speaking, most of these IoT systems is as follows: Device <-> Cloud <-> User The device (the alarm clock) establishes and maintains a connection to a custom server in the cloud, informing the cloud of its state (connected, on/off, time). The cloud presents an API which user applications (eg. ...

You could potentially install Android 7 on a Raspberry Pi 3 if you wanted to run that, as described by the MagPi magazine. The binaries can be downloaded here, although I can't tell if the performance will be that great, or if it will be sufficient to run an AR application. You might just be able to use a USB camera (according to this discussion) although ...
