Checkin is a popular feature of internet’s social networks, to share with our connections latest places we’ve visited.
As we hope Domus to be an interesting place, we’ve added a checkin extension, which allows anyone with a smart phone to share the news. A QRcode with the appropriate link is placed nearby the entry of Domus, and let people share interest of their visit with their friends.
The version under development uses the same principle in order to authenticate people within Domus. As Facebook let us know who have been checked in recently, we can use the identity of the checker to allow/refuse entry, or to load user preferences (thermostat setpoint settings, scenes, schedule, favorite music and movies…). A dual-way authentication is also considered.
