Webinar Recap: “Making IoT Accessible: How P&G is Pioneering High Tech Solutions in Consumer Markets"

Posted by Knar Bedian on Apr 7, 2016 12:10:48 PM

This March, we held a technical webinar exploring the challenges in developing a companion app for an Internet of Things (IoT) device called the Febreze Home, P&G’s latest effort in providing consumers with a more approachable home automation device.

While home automation systems have already become integral in many homes, they often come at higher price points; the Febreze Home is a smart, connected air freshener that offers an affordable introduction to the world of IoT.

Follow Erik Hasenoehrl, Research Fellow at Procter & Gamble, and Guy Dupont, Senior Developer at Intrepid as they describe their development process, map out the device interaction architecture, and detail the integration features with other IoT devices, including the popular Nest thermostat.
