A Truly Smarter Home Is The Promise Delivered By RoomMe’s Sensor Triggers
Intellithings has come up with an occupancy sensor thanks to a successful crowd-funding campaign. When you mount a RoomMe to the ceiling near a room’s entrance, each time you enter the room with your cellphone on your person, the sensor will recognize you and trigger the smart devices in that room.
You could instruct the RoomMe to turn on the lights and the thermostats in certain rooms at certain times. It works with Ecobee3 and Ecobee4 smart thermostats, making your life easier than ever. When you leave the room, everything will switch off on its own.
The RoomMe occupancy sensor is slightly on the larger side being 6” in diameter. The system makes use of Bluetooth LE to understand when someone is in the room. This works using the user’s smartphone, so it will work only if you have your phone on you at all times. Since there might be more people in the house, you can establish priority which means the preferences of that person would be considered the first.
From a privacy perspective, Intellithings emphasizes that communication occurs only between the sensor on the ceiling and the app on your smartphone.
This means no personal data is sent to the cloud in the name of processing. Zuli Smartplugs also work in a similar manner using Bluetooth LE communications.
