AlertMe – the innovative UK based smart home security system based on Zigbee technology – is taking another step forward with the details of v2.0 of their software. Read on for the summary and link to the demo system.
Energy : You will be able to monitor how much electricity an appliance plugged into the SmartPlug is using, as well as being able to control those appliances remotely.
PanicPanic button : It will be possible to configure your doorbell to use as a panic button, so just one press of the button can send an SMS to a friend.
Action chooser : You will be able to configure the system to your needs which brings with it much more flexibility – for example, you can decide ‘When somebody presses the doorbell, send me an SMS’, or ‘When I enter Night
Mode, switch on the upstairs lamp’.
Tracking : This will allow you to set up actions for any sensor triggers – for example, you could make your hub chime when somebody walks through the door or opens a window.
Camera : This release will also include camera functionality, in preparation for the release of AlertMe webcams which are currently in the final stages of development.
