Threshold Corp have been developing their new smart home system for around 4 years now and they’re due to launch to market in the next few weeks. The system uses a central controller to talk to a range of Wi-Fi based wireless modules all of which can be added to the secure network in seconds using their new “ConfigSpot” technology.. Check out the video below.
Using ConfigSpot anyone can easily install and configure a wireless device by simply holding the ConfigSpot of one device near the ConfigSpot of another device on the network. ConfigSpot then automatically and wirelessly programs the new device with network addresses, security keys, passwords, device names, and other necessary configuration information. It’s that easy!
ImageThreshold’s ConfigSpot technology enables a new expansion of wireless technology by making existing devices radically easier to install and use, and enabling wireless capabilities to be incorporated into almost any device at an extremely low cost. Creating a “smart home” is now easy and affordable.
For example, wireless-controlled electrical outlets can know when to turn off devices to save money and help the environment, or consumers can add a new wireless camera, phone, or media player to the network by just holding it over another device. The possibilities are endless!”
