Joseph Palenchar for Twice: A wireless do-it-yourself home-security system that Myfox will bring to the U.S. late in the second quarter or early third quarter will detect and deter intruders before they enter the house, the French company said. Unlike other DIY security systems that use indoor motion sensors to detect intruders, the Myfox system uses wireless sensors, or IntelliTags, attached to doors and windows to analyze door and window vibrations that indicate a break-in, the company said. The sensors, which run on a single AA battery, differentiate normal events such as door knocking from doors and windows being pried open. When a break-in is attempted, the sensor sends a wireless 915MHz RF signal to a hub, which triggers a battery-operated siren via RF and uses Wi-Fi to send alerts via broadband modem to cellphones. Multiple family members or friends can receive notifications and get monitoring rights. The company, founded in 2005, also offers an optional Wi-Fi security camera, which can be used as a standalone surveillance device. The $299 Myfox Home Alarm system, which can be monitored and controlled via Android and iOS smartphones, will be Apple HomeKit-enabled and will be certified as Works With Nest.

From Jared Newman for TechHive: Logitech is continuing its quest to control your entire smart home by linking up with a couple of voice-activated computers. If you own one of Logitech’s Home Hubs, you can now control all your connected home devices by voice with either a wall-mounted Ubi computer or an Ivee smart alarm clock. Both devices connect to Logitech’s Hub through Wi-Fi, delivering commands that would otherwise require Logitech’s Harmony remote control or mobile app. Ubi and Ivee can already control a fair number of smart home products on their own, but Logitech’s big pitch its ability to string multiple commands into “Harmony Activities.” For example, you could tell Ubi to “watch a movie” and have the TV and sound system turn on, while dimming your Philips Hue connected lightbulbs. Or, you could tell Ivee to make sure your smart lock is engaged and all the lights are off as you get into bed.
