THE FUTURE ISN'T APPS ON THE PHONE. IT'S APPS IN THE HOME.
What is Open Home?
A networked computing infrastructure, designed for the family.
Understanding how to save on energy bills. Knowing when to seek medical advice. Being alerted if there is a problem with an elderly relative. These are real life family problems. Apps on mobile devices are great for things that are personal to you, but to help to manage family life you need an infrastructure that:
Always on, always there.
Doesn't stop working when someone leaves the home with their mobile device.
Apps that share.
Isn't limited by information gathered from a single app.
Open and free.
Isn't constrained by the resources and ideas of a single company or individual.
HOW DOES OPEN HOME WORK?

Apps are automatically downloaded to the OpenHome hub for the control of your widgets.
