Guest Post: Apple Watch for Home Automation


Apple recently held their "Spring Forward" event and after watching the event and seeing the apps demoed on the Apple Watch, this could be valuable for home automation in future iterations of the device but it does not add any value at the moment.

I think the main point of the Apple Watch is really about detaching yourself from your phone. The watch is really a notification center that sits on your wrist. You would no longer need to pull your phone out of your pockets and instead just see the notifications on your wrist.

Of all the apps that are currently available at launch, there is no "killer" app that will make you think you need to purchase an Apple Watch. Until there is a killer app available, the Apple Watch is just an extension of your phone that sits on your wrist.
