The ongoing miniaturization and cost reduction in electronic hardware has created opportunity for equipping homes with inexpensive smart devices for controlling and automating various tasks in our daily lives. Networking technology and standards have an important role in driving this development. We discuss how technological progress in the areas of visual programming languages, component software, and connection-based programming can be applied to programming the smart home. As an example of an industrial prototype solution, we present microCommander, a visual tool for rapidly programming synergetic devices for the smart home.
