Neurio emerges from Kickstarter and it’s a viable way to easily make your home a “smart home.”
I’ve hears all the reasons against having a “smart home.”
– Too expensive
– Too confusing
– Wrong appliances
– House too old
With Neurio, those excuses go right out the window.
In a matter of minutes, I was able to use Neurio to make my home and home office, “smart.”
Neurio actually uses one sensor to connect older appliances and newer “smart” devices, so users can track, monitor and get a grasp how their home is operating, in ways like letting the user know when their kids come home, or if you forgot to turn something off before leaving for the work or a round of golf.
Neurio is currently available for order at www.neur.io. The Neurio Sensor costs $249 and what you get is a single sensor that you attach to your home’s circuit box, allowing for a connected home and monitoring right out of the box.
“By only using a single device to smarten up the whole house, homeowners now have an affordable, yet powerful way to truly see how their home is operating, ultimately giving them peace of mind,” said Ali Kashani, Co-Founder and CTO of Neurio. “Neurio monitors your home’s electricity to figure out what your appliances are up to – without the need to install sensors on every device. It’s time for the smart home of tomorrow to become the regular house of today, and Neurio is poised to lead the way.”
The nuts and bolts per Neurio:
Once the Neurio Sensor is installed on an electrical panel, it sends the data via WiFi to the cloud where the smart algorithms identify the unique power pattern by each device in real-time to tell whether a specific appliance is in use or off, and how much energy it consumes. Unlike other smart home systems, Neurio does NOT require that each appliance in the house be connected to a sensor. With Neurio, everything is monitored directly through the home’s circuit box.
Neurio works and it allows one to see if a “smart home” is something you and your famil will make use of, now and in the future as Neurio will grow with you use of the sensor.
Neurio Appliance Detection provides some useful information like when an appliance is on, when it was last used and how much energy it consumes. When we roll out notifications, integrations, and new analytic capabilities, you’ll be able to get more out of Neurio, like detecting anomalies and getting a message when they occur. This will make Neurio a powerful way to bring non-connected devices to life and provide added peace of mind and comfort.
Neurio is worth checking out. It’s good for you and your home.
