How Will RoomMe’s Smart Home Sensors Take The Connected Home To The Next Level?
Intellithings has created RoomMe, a smart, personal location sensor. RoomMe is a…
Bluetooth-powered sensor that not only knows when someone comes into a room, but who has come into the room, who else is in that room, and how it should adjust the home’s systems to accommodate those people.
It is similar to the system Bill Gates developed around his house. While his system works using a pin, RoomMe uses personal sensors. Biometric sensors didn’t make the cut due to privacy issues. The sensor used here is usually fixed at the entrance of the room and identifies your smartphone as you go through the door. As you do, it connects to the Bluetooth and communicates your preference to the various devices. You can also set priority for each family member. This means if you and your child are in one room, your preferences will be prioritized.
This idea took birth after the founder, Kotlicki, realized that smart devices, although popular, were still being controlled via voice or the app. The best part about RoomMe is that there are no privacy concerns since the sensors don’t know the individual members, only their phones. RoomMe currently works with Sensibo and Ecobee thermostats, Philips Hue and LIFX lighting, and Sonos and Bose speakers. It is designed to be able to manage hundreds of Z-Wave and Zigbee devices. Support for smart TVs and other smart entertainment systems in on the way.
