It looks like the Android@Home project has shifted to thermostat control during the silence, the first evidence of which has revealed itself in the form of a screenshot of the Google Play Store. Based solely on this screenshot, EnergySense appears to be a smart thermostat control app that allows the user to control the temperature of their home no matter where they are. Profiles are available for home and away, and a great deal of the UI seems to be gesture based. According to a report from The Information, Google is not building their own hardware for the pilot program. The program itself consists of both Google employees and trusted testers who are testing its viability. There’s currently no word on whether or not the project will ever make it to a consumer release stage, but it does seem like Google has put quite a bit of effort into the project already. Last year Google didn’t mention Android@Home on stage at all during their keynote. If nothing gets announced before Google IO this year it is entirely possible that Android@Home will either be a focal point for the presentation, or this could be the result of Larry Page putting more wood behind fewer arrows and focusing on a single aspect of home automation first.
