Coder's Cafe Event, 21 January 2020, Home Automation.

Comments from the invitation to the event:

Direct Device to Device Communication - Shelly Products from Allterco Robotics






Details

Update: Ivan Mihaylov, CCO for Allterco Robotics is in South Florida this week and will attend the meetup!

Doug Roberson will give a demonstration focusing on two Shelly Cloud modules, manufactured by Allterco Robotics - a Shelly 1 relay and a Shelly Door/Window sensor.

Doug will show how to retrofit an existing "dumb" light switch with a Shelly 1 relay, how to set up and configure the Door/Window sensor, and then illustrate how the two products can work cooperatively with each other (and others), as well as explaining how they can be integrated into various home automation hubs and platforms.

Doug's Bio:

I've worked as a software engineer for ITS, Inc in Delray Beach, FL since 2011. My primary function is coding tax and fee calculations used by auto dealerships to title and register vehicles for out of state customers.

I spent 15 years as QA Manager for Worden Brothers, Inc., working at their offices in Fort Lauderdale FL, Durham NC, and Wilmington NC.

In my spare time, I'm a home automation enthusiast and enjoy finding interesting ways to make home life better using technology. In 2018, I founded a smart home oriented Facebook community, The Smarter Home Club, which is dedicated to helping people learn about smart home products and possibilities without the snark and incivility found in most home automation groups.

Recently, I've teamed up with Allterco Robotics to help them introduce their Shelly Cloud smart home products to the US market."
