Powerful home automation app Stringify comes to Android and adds IFTTT integration

Rita El Khoury for AndroidPolice:  Ever since I got my Wink Hub 2, one of the services I kept seeing in conversations when trying to bridge together different smart appliances and services was Stringify. The app was limited to iOS though, so I never got to use it because I wasn't going to carry my iPad around all the time to toggle a light bulb. But at CES, Stringify made a few announcements that we just came across (excuse the delay, we had tons of emails and releases to sift through) and that are sure to please Android users.

Before going further, here's a quick rundown of what Stringify is for those of you who'd never heard of it. Think of it as a more powerful IFTTT. You're not limited to linking one trigger to one action, instead you can build flows that involve many services, conditional circumstances, and successive triggers and actions, like so: turn X on and Y off when I am home and only if it is night time. This kind of flow is impossible with IFTTT now. And for those of us who are Wink users, Stringify has a much better integration than IFTTT with Wink, letting you use your connected Wink things as triggers too, not just as actions, so you can have Stringify trigger a flow based on a door sensor being open in Wink, something that Wink's IFTTT collaboration doesn't do at all. However, the downfall of Stringify is that while it supports a lot of services and gadgets, it doesn't have as many partners as IFTTT.   Cont'd...

Smart Home Hardware and Services Revenue Set for a Steep Growth

Pratibha Nanduri for ReadITQuick:  Market research company Juniper Research, has released its latest report titled “Smart Home Markets: Entertainment, Monitoring, Automation, Health, Metering, Appliances 2017-2021.” The report on the research predicts that the market is slated for a steep growth from $83 billion in 2017 to $195 billion by 2021.

Segment Evaluation

The smart appliances and home automation segment would be the fastest growing one during the forecast period with big companies like Samsung, Bosch and GE Appliances driving the growth.

The revenue from the entertainment segment is expected to slow down due to increased use of home automation and smart appliances in emerging markets.
