If you don't find constant social media updates or phone notifications distracting, then you will likely love this notification object. Notifon connects objects in your home to the internet, delivering you updates on real world activity. This essentially brings the Internet of Things to your home, turning your existing house into a smart version.

The device has 14 node units that act as sensors, as well as a central hub that bridges the sensors and connects them to the internet through the ZigBee network. One way this would work, is if you attached a sensor to your front door, you would get a notice letting you know it was open. The notification object is extremely easy to set up and use. The nodes have an extra long battery life and notifications can be sent through email or Twitter.
