Our homes are going to get only smarter in the upcoming years. You don’t have to wait a few years to get started with your home automation project. In fact, an open source system like AngelBlocks makes the job less complicated. These are wireless building blocks that work together to make your home smarter. AngleBlocks can communicate 1000 feet indoors and 2 miles outdoors.
You can use these blocks to monitor your food, keep an eye on temperature/humidity/sound/light, monitor soil moisture, get smoke alerts, and detect motion at your place. AngelBlocks can work for 5 years using their batteries. If you are a little bit creative with these blocks, you can control your doors, secure your car, and take better care of your pets with them. What’s neat is you can use your existing technologies for home automation (e.g. Zigbee, ZWave, WeMo). This awesome project is on Kickstarter right now.
