Now here is an Indiegogo project that you might want to look into – the ALYT Smart Home Manager, where it requires $100,000 in funds in order to deliver a cutting edge Android-powered platform to the masses. ALYT stands for Affordably Link Your Things, where it is a unique do-it-yourself (DIY), open source, Smart Home Manager that runs on the Android environment. WIth ALYT, one is able to manage home security systems, energy usage, entertainment systems, and home automation through an Android-powered smartphone or tablet.
This does seem to usher in an era where a smart home no longer seems to be out of reach, and the worlds of science fiction and reality meet. Consumers will find that this wireless device has its fair share of advantages, where among them include exceptional affordability (relatively speaking) when it comes to high tech home security, seamless operations and video verification during power or communications failures, exceptional connectivity via Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, ZigBee, 3.5G Cellular, Infrared and DLNA, and an easy setup procedure that does not take more than mere minutes.
Should the ALYT project raise enough funds, you can look forward to it shipping later this Fall. I suppose when we have smartphones with transparent displays ala Tony Stark’s LG device in the Iron Man movies, it would look cooler when manipulating devices like the ALYT.
