Beacon technology is becoming a more popular kind of technology found in the retail sector, but the 'Gidjit' Beacon' smart sensors are looking to bring it into the consumer home.
Available now for preorder on Kickstarter, 'Gidjit' Beacons' work by being placed in various rooms around your home and tracking your location via your smartphone. The smart sensors communicate with all the various devices in your home -- thermostats, lightbulbs, outlets etc. -- and bring the control to a single app. This allows users to only see what they can control in the room they are currently in rather than scrolling through numerous apps to find what they're looking for.
The 'Gidjit' Beacon' system can be scaled up or down depending on home size or preference for integration into the home environment.
