Party button paradigm was first introduced by Zackary Anderson, student at MIT, as a demonstration for its MIDAS system.
The same concept was taken to develop a specific “party” scenario within Domus. An emergency button has the advantage to be irresistible, even though consequences may be regrettable.
But not only a physical button can trigger this scenario, but also the entire abstraction system. Thereby, the “party” mode can be triggered from an HTTP REST request, a smartphone (using OpenRemote), and even Skype.
