AngelBlocks Could Take Home Automation to the Next Level

AngelBlocks can be customized into what seems to be nearly limitless uses. For example, they could remind you when to water the plants if moisture levels in the dirt are low, warn you if your dog gets into the trash or even automatically lock the door when you leave the house. Each use can be sorted into one of three categories — notify, monitor or control.
 
"This kind of technology can save you a lot of time and effort," Steve Montgomery, who created AngelBlocks, told Mashable. "Being able to have the things in your life cooperate with you instead of be a hindrance to you is important."
 
Each system comes with one AngelGate — the brains of the operation that plugs into an Internet connection. This component wirelessly communicates with the AngelBlocks themselves, which are attached to different household objects (lighter than a computer mouse, they can either be screwed on or affixed with adhesive strips or magnets). Users register each AngelBlock on a web application and program it with a built-in system to do specific things at specific times based on what it senses in its environment, such as movement or temperature. As an added bonus, AngelTags can monitor your location (if they're attached to a keychain, for example) and activate AngelBlocks as you move through certain areas of the house. For instance, you could turn the lights on simply by walking into a room.
