The Philips Android TV is ushering in an exciting system that currently revolves around familiar smart capabilities, but may be moving into a more involved space soon enough. In addition to connecting to the Internet in order to support YouTube, Google and video apps like MaxFilm, the company is moving towards controlling home automation technology through its televisions.

Trusted Reviews writes, "Particularly promising is the work being done with independent UK developer MyLiveGuard to offer integrated control via Android TV of your home’s lighting, doors, security cameras and even a Nest heating control/smoke alarm system if you have one installed." The Philips Android TV may introduce a whole new way to interact with smart technology in the home.
