In a Smart Home context, IoTs will not be just personal, and therefore attached to a Smartphone, a Tablet or a PC only. They will need some kind of domestic fixed Hub, readily available for family use rather than just individual driven. Moreover, such multipurpose Hub will have to work even when people are away, or when the telecom line falls down. In other words, such a Smart Home Hub will need to create some kind of offline Micro-Cloud dealing seamlessly with whatever Media, Telecom and IoT patterns people will be mixing and scaling..
