Gain experience with Mozilla's WebThings Gateway (demo), then program your own developer board as a smart home device and connect it to the gateway. 

Learning Objectives 
Learn the importance of privacy, security, and interoperability around IoT devices, and how to implement these principles in your own home. See how easy it is to set up, and how a free and open source software system enables you to avoid monthly service fees.
