Home Automation - Revolv Bundles Compatible Products With Its Home-Automation Hub

Home-automation start-up Revolv is trying to make it easier for consumers to select products compatible with its $299 hub, which incorporates multiple wireless technologies to control home-automation products made by other companies.

The products can be controlled through the hub via an iOS app.

On its website, Revolv created four product packages consisting of its hub and such products as a Yale Z-Wave deadbolt, Honeywell Z-Wave thermostat, Nest thermostat, Insteon wireless motion sensor, Belkin and Insteon plug-in appliance-control modules, Philips Hue and Insteon LED light bulbs, and the Sonos Play:1 networked wireless speaker.

The bundles are fulfilled by Amazon.

Revolv sells its hub on its web site and through Amazon, the Smarthome catalog, Smarthome.com, and Build.com. Revolv is also testing sales through 72 Home Depot stores and Home Depot’s web site.

Comelit - VIP Kit With Planux Monitor With WIFI/3G/4G Remote APP - 8512IM

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
