I was attending the Mashup Digital Conference yesterday and there were a bunch of start-ups there. One of my favourites was Beitomatic, founded by a Kuwaiti who’s into home automation that’s now doing what he loves doing as a full time job.
His startup offers anything from automating a room to an entire house with possible integration to Nest. They also install their technology with houses that are already built, doesn’t have to be installed during the construction process.
Home automation is much more than just double clapping for the lights to go off. You can use it to optimize your day-to-day performance. You can for example set the AC to turn off, the shutters to open and your coffee machine start brewing when your alarm goes on at the morning, or set the doors to lock and lights to go off, AC goes, TV screens go off when it’s time to sleep.
If you’re interested use their contact page or contact them on 6606 0747. They’ll set up a meeting to sit and discuss how they can automate your place and what best way to go with it.
