Intellithings will showcase RoomMe, a smart home true occupancy automation system based on patented presence sensing technology, at ISE for the first time this week.
Attendees can expect to learn more about the RoomMe True Occupancy Automation system, its recently announced functionality including voice assistant and smartwatch support, and receive additional information on which popular smart home systems and devices – both DIY and professionally installed – RoomMe is compatible with.
RoomMe leverages patented Presence Sensing Technology (PST) to make the personalised smart home experience a reality. Rather than rely on basic motion events, RoomMe leverages the unique Bluetooth signature of a user’s smartphone or select smartwatch models to identify who that user is, which room they are in, and automatically adjust settings such as entertainment, temperature, lighting, and more to that specific user’s preferences. RoomMe elevates the smart home experience and provides a hands-free, voice-free path to trigger and control connected smart home devices and systems.
RoomMe works as an additional layer for a range of professionally installed smart home systems including Control4, ELAN, RTI, URC, and Crestron. Authorised dealers can install and deploy RoomMe alongside new installations or as a valuable, post-install add-on to provide all-new levels of personalisation and automation.
All smart home scene creation and configuration remains within the confines of the integrated system and integrators can use RoomMe as an add-on layer to automatically trigger programmed scenes as specific users move throughout the home. RoomMe also works with many DIY smart home devices and systems including Apple HomeKit, Wink, Logitech Harmony, Insteon, Sensibo, Philips HUE, LIFX, Ecobee, Sonos and Bose as well as hub connected Z-Wave and Zigbee devices.
At ISE 2020, RoomMe will demonstrate voice assistant support enabling users to ask their preferred voice assistant – Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri – for information about who’s home. In response to the command, the connected voice assistant will provide details on which room in the house currently has a RoomMe user inside and how long they have been there.
RoomMe will also demonstrate support for Samsung smartwatches running Tizen OS 4.0 and up. This new smartwatch integration will allow RoomMe users to leverage their Samsung smartwatch to tell the system which room they are in without the need to carry their smartphone from room to room.
“We’re excited to bring RoomMe to ISE and show off our system capabilities to the international market and attendees,” says Oren Kotlicki, founder and CEO of Intellithings. “With RoomMe’s open API, developers can write their own custom applications for RoomMe and advance what’s possible for our True Occupancy Automation system. Currently, we have drivers for many of the most popular professionally installed smart home systems and continue to expand our list of compatible devices to make RoomMe more accessible than ever.”
Available now, RoomMe has an MSRP of $69 per sensor with special pricing available for bundles of two or more sensors. RoomMe will be on display at ISE 2020 in Hall 5, booth V130.
All of the expanded RoomMe functionality showcased at ISE 2020 will be available in a singular update made available before the end of Q1 2020.
