I don't know much of Android programming but i would like to know that if i have to develop a home automation system e.g Automatic light control and want to implement it using some Android programming, what kind of API's would i need? Will my Android device directly integrate with the system or i have to use some middleware?

Can Android be used for home automation ?

Sure, so can C#, php, basic and any other language. The question really is what hardware are you attempting to interface with ?

You can as an example get a light bulb with built in blue tooth Yes you can[^] so as long as you can find out the specs or if the company has already provided a android app you can control your lights with your phone.

Perhaps starting with a site like Instructables[^] would be a good place to look.

Hope it helps
