Finally after six months I got my home control system up and working with help off Tasker + plugins also special thanks to +João Dias​, +Armando Ferreira​, +Ryoen Deprouw​ and many more.

Setup:
* Android Tablet Samsung Tab3 running CM13
* Tasker
* Tasker plugins: most of +João Dias​ (auto apps), smart thermostat plugin, auto hue, etc (see image for the rest of the plugins)
* Nest thermostat 2nd gen.
* Philips Hue six bulbs (ordered another one today)
* Philips Hue LivingColors Bloom
* Philips Hue motion sensor (ordered another one today)
* Philips Lightstrips (not Hue) connected with TP-Link HS100 smartplug behind TV
* TP-Link HS100 smartplug for my Onkyo 5.1 surround system)
* Z-Wave Solarpanels from +Autarco
* 2x Chromecast 1st gen.
* Xtrend satellite receiver
* Philips 3D HD TV
* Multiple TP-Link routers
* Fiber internet 1000 Mbit

* Amazon Echo Dot 2 will be added soon...

Maybe I forgot something but the most important stuff is there.

I'm not going into details that's just to much, I tought myself by watching videos by the three guys listed above, great respect and many thanks to them.

About the "Control Center App":

* At first startup it will do a "check", it will read all of my devices connected to my home network (I use a ping command (Google it yourself)), so it determines if it's "On" or "Off" (see images)
* The background is weather responsive triggered every 3 hours by +weatherunderground​ (need API number), it will change to the weather conditions to rain, clear, cloudy, thunderstorm, snow, etc...
* Nest thermostat can be triggered through the plugin and set the temperature, if the Nest is in Eco or Away mode the screen goes off and vice versa
* Light can be triggered through the auto hue app, but also reads the light status every minute.
* There's also a movie mode: dimm the lights, color loop, surround on, Netflix or Plex for movies
* TV can be triggered though a JSON command (Google it yourself) every TV works differently
* Satellite receiver works through HTTP commands (Enigma2)
* Images of HDMI change automatically to TV port selected
* Also front camera is used as motion detector (not the best but works)
* TuneIn radio, YouTube and Netflix automatically stream to chromecast when I choose a song or movie of tv-show

That's about it.
Any comments, tips or whatever is welcome!

I don't want to get in to much detail because every situation and setup is different.

3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.
