Logitech has announced a new Harmony API to allow developers to create smart home entertainment experiences and more.
The Harmony API from Logitech will allow developers to use gesture, touch, voice and also presences driven experiences, and the company has been working with SmartThings, IFTTT and more companies.
It is the first API that gives developers access to over 270,000 entertainment and smart home devices. By giving developers access to the Harmony API they will be able to create innovative smart home experiences that include entertainment devices.
Before the Harmony API it was extremely difficult for developers to create smart home entertainment experiences because of the vast diversity of protocols that controlled devices in the living room and the metadata needed to keep the devices in sync. This is a problem Harmony has solved and we wanted to open our platform to the smart home ecosystem.
