But why buy a new smart thermostat when you can use an existing old smartphone and the BEMO Smart Home System and Smart Thermostat to create your very own.
Watch the video below to learn more about the BEMO system that utilises power from your redundant smartphone, to create a next generation smart thermostat for your home.
BEMO works with both iOS and Android smartphones and provide everything you would expect from a smart thermostat, energy management, intuitive interface and eco-friendly. Its creators explain a little more :
“BEMO transforms android, iphone and iOS devices into a smart thermostat alternative and energy management brain center. BEMO uses android or iPhone to completely replace your thermostat with a more powerful device that will save you money using devices you own and are already familiar with.
BEMO connects to your existing A/C and heating system completely replacing your single purpose thermostat. It provides the hardware, software and connectivity needed to transform your old smartphone into a revolutionary smart home system and smart thermostat alternative using technology you already OWN and understand.
Some say it’s the android of smart thermostats or the Firefox of smart home automation because the software we use is public and open source. It provides a community driven set of features running on a global platform that can scale to the 1.6 billion smartphones already in existence.”
The BEMO 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 BEMO is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help BEMO become a reality.
