Glowing Orb Creates Connected Home You Can Talk To
Homey is a new system that lets you control your devices with your voice.
Dutch start-up Athom recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for their product, Homey, a new home automation system that connects the owner’s devices and lets them control those devices with their voice.
Homey integrates entertainment systems, appliances, lighting, online data and social media accounts into home automation. While other similar systems focus on just appliances and controlling them via an app, Homey allows users to connect multimedia devices to online services like email and weather data. This means Homey can not only adjust the thermostat to a comfortable level or turn lights on and off, but also play certain music when it rains or read emails to them from the other room.
