Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Building MoodLightZ, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- Next up we're gonna develop MoodLightZ.…MoodLightZ is an Android Wear plus Android Phone application…that connects up to a bank of…Philips Hue LED controllable lights.…So we're talking from a watch, to a phone,…to a Wi-Fi hub, through ZigBee, off to the lights.…So the Android Wear Device App selects the desired lighting.…The Wear Device then sends a message to the Phone,…the phone has a service, so there's no UI…other than the little toast that pops up…that indicates you've selected what color…you want the lights to be,…which listens to the Wear Device…and then sends a specific set of JSON to the Hue hub.…
Schematically, it looks like this.…The Wear Device and the Android Phone…talk back and forth over Bluetooth…and the Android Phone talks…back and forth to the Philips Hue Lights over Wi-Fi.…Now, this only works when you're actually…in range of your local Wi-Fi…because in order to prevent people…from randomly controlling the lights of somebody else,…which could potentially pose a safety problem,…you can only control the Hue Lights…
