Controlling all the smart devices and Internet of things projects in your home can sometimes be a little tricky especially if they are not supported by the current Apple Home, Amazon Alexa or the new Google Home systems.
If you are looking for a way to create virtual remote controls for your home then a new system called Hayo might be worth more investigation. Watch the video below to learn more about this new control system that uses gestures and touch.
Hayo has raised nearly $80,000 via Indiegogo thanks to over 270 backers and is now available with pledges starting from $219 and shipping expected to take place during September 2017. The development team behind Hayo explain more about the system.
Hayo connects to your favorite smart home platforms and products (like IFTTT, Wink, Sonos, Nest) and gives you the ability to control them with simple hand motions. The system starts by 3D-scanning your room and lets you create virtual remote controls on top of objects (like furniture) or right in mid air. Want to make your coffee table a play button for Sonos? Or place an on/off button for your HUE lights right above your bed? Hayo can do that. It’s like using the force for your home.
