Aditya Srivastava for The Tech Portal: They claim to have figured out quicker, cheaper and lesser inconvenient way of creating a 'smarter' interior. Some privacy benefits have also been provided as per the claims.
Sheri Kasprzak for PDDNet: Smart homes are the wave of the future. That future could include more than 4 billion smart home sensors installed in homes around the world by 2022, according to ABI Research, a technology market research firm.
The Tabs hub provides Wi-Fi coverage over an entire residence and Tabs sensor coverage over entire neighborhoods with significant benefits not only to consumers but also to operators and service providers deploying Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). For operators and service providers, the Tabs hub installed within customers' homes accelerates and scales LPWAN deployments much faster than a solely tower-based approach, easily provides deep indoor coverage and significantly reduces the network deployment capital and operation expense.
Each Tabs solution starts with a wireless hub, which provides the Tabs sensor coverage over an entire neighborhood or high-rise development, delivering immediate benefit to the consumer. Each solution further includes a Tabs extender, which is a Tabs sensor hub but not a full Wi-Fi router, to ensure coverage over the locations most frequented by families such as school, day-care, or a friend's house.
As more users install Tabs hubs and extenders, they collaborate to build or improve network coverage over an entire city or region, giving the users additional benefit for locating children, pets, elderly or things. Full Press Release:
EKOOR, a Green Energy promoter in IoT recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to gather funds to produce their latest indoor light powered Bluetooth Proximity Beacons aimed at adding proximity intelligence to smart homes.

Once attached to home appliances, this circular Smart ThinQ Sensor gets feedback such as temperature or vibration and transmits its readings to the Smart ThinQ app on the user's smartphone.
LG offers examples to illustrate how this will work out when paired with existing home appliances. Attached to a traditional washing machine, for instance, the Smart ThinQ device can sense when the machine completes a laundry cycle, sending a notification to the user's smartphone. Attached to a refrigerator, it can send the user a notification when a food item is approaching its expiration date. Connected to an air conditioner or some other such appliance, the Smart ThinQ allows users to remotely control the appliances via the smartphone app. Cont'd...
