John and Georgia are talking to Hung Vu from iBot Controls about one of our favorite subjects – home automation! They offer WiFi and Bluetooth-enabled “Bees” that you use to control things around your house from the “Hive” app on your smartphone or tablet. The bees interface with the hive through bot units. The app controls all of the different sensors and devices in your home over WiFi, and can be extensively customized to fit your preferences based on the different components that you’re making use of.
iBot Controls automation sets are available for preorder now, with the starter kit of 4 Bees of your choice, 1 bot, the app and a Hive account running $199.
