The Ube WiFi Smart Dimmer Will Control Your Lights And Your Sprinkler System As Well

For most of us, entering the house and turning on the lights involves a flick of a switch. Turning on another light is another switch, the fan, the air-con and so on. However with home automation starting to catch on, we wouldn’t be surprised if one day the majority of us lived in homes where our gestures could control more than one gadget from a single switch, and that’s what the Ube WiFi Smart Dimmer is hoping to accomplish. Making an appearance at SXSW, its creators have announced an upgraded version of its Smart Dimmer that will be able to control other smart devices at home. As it stands, the Smart Dimmer does exactly as its name implies, which is adjust the lighting in your home by swiping on the touchpad. A single swipe turns your lights on/off, while using two fingers will adjust multiple lights. Now no longer content with merely adjusting the lighting in homes, the updated version of the Smart Dimmer will be able to control other smart devices, such as a smart water sprinkler simply by swiping the letter “W”, or enabling/disabling your home alarm by tracing the letter “A” on its surface. No word on when this updated version will be released, but for those interested in its current iteration can head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.

Home Automation - Top cable technologies in 2013

Several major pay TV distributors are stepping up efforts to market home security and automation services to subscribers this year, offering subscribers the ability to monitor their homes with security cameras, and control lighting and thermostats. Comcast charges subscribers $39.95 monthly for its Xfinity Home service, while Time Warner Cable's Intelligent Home service costs $33.95 monthly. Verizon has undercut its cable rivals with its Home Monitoring and Control service, which costs $9.99 monthly. AT&T hasn't yet detailed the pricing for its AT&T Digital Life product--a wireless service that it plans to launch in March. For MSOs such as Comcast, supplying subscribers with gadgets such as outdoor night vision cameras, flood sensors and carbon monoxide detectors can help drive increased broadband revenue. Look for cable operators and other telecom providers to eventually add remote healthcare products to their home automation services. Amdocs, which supplies a billing system to Comcast and other telecom providers, has been pitching service providers a cloud-based eHealth Solutions product that could allow operators to supply subscribers with glucose monitors, blood pressure readers, pill dispensers and scales.
