Hello boinc community,
I was wondering there is/ are any plans to get boinc integrated with smarthome systems.
I think this could be very handy for allowing work to process, for instance when you have a surpluss of solar energy, or word to automatically stop when a room reaches a certain temperature. There would be a lot of opportunities to 'program' cool stuff. And make it very easy to let Boinc do work under certain circumstances.

Getting BOINC to work isn't usually the problem, but getting projects to port their science applications to whatever platform runs on the devices, hoping their CPUs are strong enough, there's enough disk space and enough memory. Most of those systems use a low powered SoC with not much memory or storage space.

sounds like something that IFTTT can do fairly easily.
