News - OOMI Launches Funding Campaign

We saw OOMI at ShowStoppers and while they didn't have actual product, they certainly said all the right things to indicated a good understanding of what HA is and what HA users want to get from the system. If you'd like to get in on the launch [aka pre-order] price of $229 (SRP will be $449) head on over to Indiegogo. Full PR after the click.

Podcast - MissingRemote Podcast 49 - CES follow-up part 2 w/ Andrew too

RSS Feed for iTunes/Zune/Podcast

CES was so big we just can’t stop talking about it, and Andrew (@babgvant) was excited too so he joined us too. We had a little audio trouble starting off, be we delayed it and brought you the best show. Andrew has been hard at work posting follow up stories for the items we visited at #CES2015. OLED and Audio were some of the stuff Andrew was impressed by at CES. Smart Home was huge this year at CES and they had some great stuff and some not so great stuff. 9 volt smart battery with wifi and sound detection was pretty cool. Why do we have some many protocol and standards we discuss when they join forces they have much better products. Internet of Things was the theme at CES this year. We are really excited about the new NAS that are coming out from many companies and we will talk about them more on the show. Earthquake Audio was great at CES and John was like a little school girl at the show. WiSA audio is growing and with products launching it will be nice to see the products in the stores.

News - Internet of Things (IoT) / Eureka Park @ CES 2015

Eureka Park is one of my favorite things about going to CES. It’s a special place where pretty much anyone can come to the show and demonstrate their product. Most are actual products (like UPPER DESK), some will be soon, and others are still questing for funding. With Internet of Things (IoT) (which BTW is a horrible name, but since it essentially means putting a device on the network and having it report, and potentially change, state, and I think that’s too low a bar to use “Smart Device” or something similar let's run with it) commanding focus this year, there were a multitude of different network enabled devices on display making it a great thought exercise on IoT innovation.

News - UPPER DESK @ CES 2015

Our kitchen is small so there really isn’t a good place to put a TV, even a small one. So I often end up watching football of the tablet while getting the Sunday roast started. Finding a good place to put it can be difficult though because I don’t want it down on the counter with the chicken and vegetables so it usually sits across the room – which can make it hard to catch everything. UPPER DESK’s tablet mounts addresses that with a clever and flexible device that looks like it can attach to pretty much anywhere you need it.

News - Zipato @ CES 2015

I don’t remember seeing Zipato at CES last year, so when I noticed their unique Z-Wave ZIPABOX home automation controller (HAC) while roaming the show floor I made a point to stop in and have a look.
