I recently discovered Node-RED, a flow-based programming platform for IoT.
In the past, I tried several solutions at my households, ending up writing my own node.js server that was dispatching API calls to the several devices around, like Philips HUE Lights, Android TV, SONOS, etc.
With Node-RED, everything is pretty straightforward, and it does not require much more than just connecting several blocks together, defining flows and behaviors.
