If you are interested in adding a little more home automation to your crash pad, you might be interested in a new device which has been developed by Steve Montgomery called AngelBlocks.
AngelBlocks have been designed to be an open source smart system which can be easily attached to anything using a sticky pad creating a smart device in your home. To learn more about the new wireless smart devices check out the video after the jump to the more.
“AngelBlocks are a cost effective, comprehensive set of wireless building blocks that work together to make your home smart, securing your property, protecting your family, and making your life easier and more comfortable.
AngelBlocks can communicate 1000 feet indoors and 2 miles outdoors and operate for 5 years from a set of batteries: they are a truly unique approach to smart home technology.”
When a change or a problem is detected, they can notify you directly using built in speech synthesis as well as messaging via the Internet. AngelBlocks can actively change their environment, turning water on and off, locking and unlocking doors, controlling appliances, setting the thermostat, and much more.
Using AngelTags, AngelBlocks can track the presence of people, pets, and things, creating an environmental user interface that you can use to control your home simply by moving around it. AngelBlocks can automatically turn off appliances and lights when you leave the room, saving energy. They can also detect when you leave home and shut your garage door, lock your doors, turn off dangerous appliances, and activate your security system.”
The AngelBlocks project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think AngelBlocks is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help AngelBlocks become a reality.
