The Google Pixel event is scheduled for the 4th of October and the buzz has been growing about another exciting new feature that is expected to be teased at the event. This project has been referred to by its supposed internal codename Andromeda.

From all the rumors that have been circulating it is expected to be a long-expected announcement of the merger of Google two operating systems: Android and Chrome OS. There is also another movement that involves running Android apps in Chrome OS, this is not that. From what we can tell this involves folding Chrome OS into Android.gigatech2

The expectation is that this would give Android a phone/tablet mode and a Desktop/Notebook mode. There have been attempts before by Motorola to run a desktop on an Android phone but it is possible that this was too early and the Desktop OS at the time was a Linux variant.

It is also unclear if this will be part of Android or be based on a separate fork of the OS. It would be an interesting move on the part of Google if it were to run its own fork of Android for the purposes of folding Chrome OS into it.

Despite all the uncertainty, the event on the 4th of October looks like it will be setting the stage for Google to seriously enter the hardware business. It will also involve direct competition with Apple and its fellow Android manufacturer Samsung.

The smart home and internet of things are the only things anyone can talk about these days. The tech press believes that it is going to be the future when in fact you can already have a fully connected home today. Although it is not a cheap conversion, it is now more affordable than a few years ago and can be started for a few hundred dollars.

The first step is to look at what you want to be able to do. Here are a few use cases that you might want to use:

Smart home devices can also be used for security. The primary devices used here, in addition to a hub would be door and windows sensors, proximity sensors and lights. All doors and windows can have sensors that can trigger alarms. There are even sirens that can be connected and triggered. Proximity sensors can trigger external lights on motion and cameras.

Safety

Another use case is night time safety. Proximity sensors in corridors can be set to switch lights on when activated at night. The same goes for a trip the toilet at night, open the door and the lights will come automatically. These same sensors can also switch the lights off after a period of inactivity.

Future Home

The final and most attractive use case is for a fully connected future home experience. The lights come on when you are close by. The air conditioning comes on at specific temperatures close to when you will enter the house. Too cold? The heater comes and keeps the house at a nice toasty temperature. This and so much more is possible with today’s technology.
