My idea for an #AndroidWear   application for +GDG Ann Arbor Android  is a wearable home automation app that takes the user's location into account when controlling appliances within the home.

The app uses the user's location as a way to provide feedback only when it's necessary, and to stay out of the way when it isn't. In this example, the app can detect when a user is arriving home and can ask if they want to switch the lights on.

Instead of switching individual lights on and off, the user can create preset groups and activate them with voice commands. Users can set commonly used groups like "living room" and "kitchen."

Night owl users can set reminders to go to bed, and the app can turn off lights if the user decides to stay up late.

The app can also use sensors to detect when motion is occurring in the home and alert the user if no one is supposed to be at home. The user can decide whether the motion is a false alarm or if further action should be taken.

There is obviously much more that can be done with a home automation app, but these are just a few scenarios that would work well on an Android Wear device. I'm looking forward to experimenting on #AndroidWear  when it becomes available!

I got a Google Glass invite and need help figuring out which color to order: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LWVKS23
Take a look at these colors for Google Glass, then rank them by awesomeness.
