The Mother Hub and Her Smart Sensor Cookies
This month's featured technology from NEAT's Smart Home is Mother & Her Cookies by Sense. This technology is defined as "The Universal Monitoring Solution". The system consists of a hub, the "Mother", and 4 sensors known as "cookies". These sensors can track multiple factors such as temperature, motion and frequency.
By utilizing the app, you can track things like pill intake, sleep movement and temperatures in multiple rooms.
You can attach a sensor to a door and be notified every time it is opened.
You can also drop a cookie into your child's backpack and the app will notify you when they arrive home.
Another fun use is attaching them to your family's toothbrushes and the app will track their activity and rank everyone's brushing duration for a friendly competition. Mother can also work with the Nest Smart Thermostat and IFTTT (If This Than That) to more efficiently regulate temperature and automatically turn on lights when you enter the home. The Mother hub has a 65 feet radius and you can use multiple mothers to extend the range. Additional cookies are also available for purchase. Click here to see a video demonstration.
