We reported earlier that Microsoft was working on a new project titled ‘HomeOS.’ Now, the company has published a white paper about the concept. In the white paper, HomeOS has been detailed as a home automation system, which will enable the user to take charge of a number of devices located within his home.


It may seem a bit too idealistic and impractical but Microsoft seems pretty ambitious about making it a reality. In the research paper, it has detailed how the automation system will incorporate a number of devices such as routers, computers, tablets, smartphones, air conditioners and much more.

However, the company hasn’t yet revealed if the HomeOS will be based on Windows or what. What the paper does reveal is that this system makes use of .NET 4.0 and C#. These details suggest quite strongly that HomeOS does actually use Windows. Besides, a Windows-based system makes sense since a lot of users are already comfortable with it and Windows have one of the most user-friendly interfaces. For a home-based system, it can be an ideal base.

The software will originally be run from a gateway PC. This PC would be solely built for home automation and would be specific to the purpose. Microsoft hasn’t yet detailed as to what hardware will be featured in this machine but what it does assure is that the integration of other, multiple devices with this gateway will be really easy. The company has already been testing its HomeOS in a number of homes.
