Smart Home App Gives Users Integrated Control Over Devices

The Stringify app has been updated, following its acquisition by Comcast, to allow consumers to automate their IoT devices on a deeper level

Stringify, an IFTTT-style iOS and Android app that was bought by American global telecommunications company Comcast last fall, is relaunching into the sphere of the Internet of Things. Initially pitched as an automation tool to merge smart home devices, the app has been updated to blend with Comcast’s tech services.

As well as a fresh visual design, Stringify can now connect voice-enabled devices such as Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple’s HomePod, thus reducing the amount of digital noise and allowing filtered notifications to come through the app, or even the TV. The app does this by creating automated routines that run when particular events prompt them. For example, there’s an option to automatically pause the home’s Wi-Fi during dinner, or to receive an alert on the TV when a connected camera picks up movement outside.

With these upgrades, as well as support for new hardware devices, Stringify has the potential to capture the hearts of the many already embracing the smart home theme. According to Statista, US household penetration is at 32 % for 2018 and is expected to hit 53% by 2022.
