Yesterday, I posted about the Internet of Things and how Stephen Wolfram is cataloguing the IoT devices. Our colleague from the GREEN REsource Council, Amanda Stinton, forwarded on this article from Eco Building Pulse about a ‘fitbit for your home’.
From the article:
The idea is this: install the sensors throughout a home. (They come in packs of 2, 4, and 6 sensors.) They will glow when the sensors register that something such as CO2 levels are amiss or even if a snoring partner is preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep. In fact, it will even tell you if your dog is barking loudly when yo’re (sic) not home, according to the company’s website. Each box’s glow indicates that homeowners should check in with the CubeSensors app to learn more about the problem and potential fixes.
With CubeSensors, you can monitor air quality, temperature, humidity, noise, light, weather pressure, and even use the built-in accelerometer. This could definitely be something to bring to the attention of the tech-savvy buyer or seller. A relatively small investment could go a long way to making the house more marketable.
What are your thoughts on these devices? Would you use them? Do you think you have clients who might find value in them?
