Twine Sensor Allows You To Easily Create Internet Connected Systems (video)


Twine has just started its journey on Kickstater, looking to make the jump from concept to manufacture and is a new device which has been designed to allow you to easily connect things and monitor them from the Internet.  Allowing you to create Internet connected systems and objects anywhere you have WiFi.

Twine is low-power hardware device that works with real-time web software to make networked physical computing simple and versatile, say its creators. Twine is equipped with a wireless module tightly integrated with a cloud-based service, together with on-board temperature and vibration sensors, and an expansion connector allowing you to connect additional sensors if required. Watch the promotional video after the jump to see it in action.

Its developers explain how Twine has been designed to work:

“The Spool web app makes it simple to set up and monitor your Twines from a browser anywhere. You set rules to trigger messages — no programming needed. The rules are put together with a palette of available conditions and actions, and read like English: WHEN moisture sensor gets wet THEN tweet “The basement is flooding!” We’ll get you started with a bunch of rule sets, and you can share rules you create with other Twine owners.”

If you think you could benefit from a Twine device jump over to the Kickstarter website to make a pledge now.

    Did they get their idea from Monnit? Probably no connection, but I already have sensors doing this.
