Checkout it's running Node and exposes webhooks to it's connected devices. Right now, you could definitely make it turn on your coffee machine, though it's probably going to need some arduino smarts to notify you when it's done. Just set your alarm for 5mins after the coffee is scheduled :P

For example, here's the temperature data (in Celsius) for my house recently:

  "result": 1,
  "error": null,
  "id": 0,
  "data": [{
    "t": "2013-05-06T12:00:00.000Z",
    "v": 22.077272727272728
  }, {
    "t": "2013-05-06T13:00:00.000Z",
    "v": 21.83124999999998
  }, {
    "t": "2013-05-06T14:00:00.000Z",
    "v": 21.767647058823524

Typo police: "to do it's job" should be "to do its job".

More typo police: "it's connected devices" should be "its connected devices".

"it's connected devices" == "it is connected devices"
