My N3rd is a unique take on home automation

Home automation is one of those new things that’s really an old thing, but we still can’t get things to do their thing. Several OEMs have made passing attempts at getting us to buy into their home automation schemes, but that requires compromise. We don’t want compromise. My N3rd just might be the answer, though.

The smallish device promises big things. By attaching itself to your devices — any device — My N3rd can pretty much make your stuff do what you want it to do. The app, which looks fairly simple (and will be available for Android at launch), is used to connect to your N3rds (pronounced ‘nerds’, in case you were a bit confused) via WiFi. Being connected to your WiFi means you can play with stuff rom anywhere in the world.
 

Being connected to your stuff means you have ultimate control, and no real interface to master. You also don’t have to buy several of one kind of product, so outfitting your home with new LG or Samsung stuff simply isn’t necessary. You like that $20 Mr Coffee java maker? Great, N3rd it up.

My N3rd may not be the cleanest solution, as it will require a bit or wiring, but it’s one that could end up the most ubiquitous. The ability to work with anything in your home, even to simply turn things off and on from anywhere, is attractive to some. If you’re wondering how much it’s going to cost, Kickstarter donations of $75 or more actually puts the N3rd in your hand when they’re available. A simple electricians courses? Those vary in cost.
