Here’s a great video from the guys at TweakTown, showing us round the HP Smart Home at the Cupertino Campus. With touchscreen control of all the house sub-systems including lighting, heating and cooling, CCTV, blinds and music plus a 30″ LCD monitor virtual aquarium in the living room.
Check out the triple monitor set-up in the kids room and the Android powered printer. The tour also shows us the HP Slate being used as a remote for the entire home as well as the Palm WebOS phones that HP acquired in 2010. There’s HP TouchSmart in the Kitchen and control of the entire Home Automation system from the TV in the Master Bedroom. For the rack geeks check out the hardware that runs the entire system around 8 minutes in.
“After the craziness that was CES in Las Vegas earlier this month, I headed on up north west to San Francisco where I had the chance to meet up with several big players in the tech industry. One of them was HP who invited me to their Cupertino campus to take a video tour of their impressive Smart Home.
What is the Smart Home? It’s literally a house that sits in one of the parking lots and is used as a very effective way to showcase the latest and greatest products to come from HP. It was first setup and displayed several years ago at CES in Las Vegas as a means to show customers and media a true to life implementation of connected HP technologies inside the home. The decision was made to send the house back to HP’s Cupertino campus in California and set it up permanently.”
