The Things Gateway from Mozilla lets you directly monitor and control your home over the web, without a middleman. The 0.5 release of the Things Gateway is packed full of new features including customizable devices, a more powerful rules engine, an interactive floor plan, and an experimental smart assistant you can talk to. It's a great way to build your own private smart home. Why not get started now?
