Home Automation – Deep Dive #3: Home Automation for Safety

Home Automation – Deep Dive #3: Home Automation for Safety

Just when you think we had covered all there was to cover in the home automation realm…we have more. Want to know whether you left your fridge open, whether your water heater is leaking, or…and obviously more importantly, whether your beer kegs are getting close to being empty? There are sensors for that. In the final episode of the Home Automation topic (and, the final episode of Season 1 of Brothers in Tech), the Brothers discuss some creative ways that automation is being used for home safety. And, while you are listening…see what ideas we have for new products in the future (copyrighted, of course)!

In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):

  • Brian’s Pick = Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor ($19.99). A great little device that can be used to sense/notify you whether a door, drawer, or liquor cabinet is open…and detect temperature change.
  • Alan’s Pick = Nanit Plus wifi Baby Monitor ($299). A great update to the traditional baby monitor. Wall or floor mount, motion monitoring, overhead video, 2-way audio, phone access to audio/video, and more.
