Martians in the House

Every week new ‘smart’ home devices are released onto the market. But such devices are expensive, have limited functionality, and encourage waste – consumers are increasingly tempted to upgrade from their old devices for those with more ‘brain cells.’

Smartians – a product that enables users to retrofit their existing home appliances, turning them into smart ones. No more waste, and the benefit of complete flexibility – you become the creator, and can be as inventive as you want.

Smartians are cloud-connected, smart actuators that let you control your home from wherever you are. They consist of a small motor, onto which you can add a dozen different add-ons. Each add-on converts the movement of the motor into a different motion to enable you to press buttons, turn knobs, pull strings and move objects.

They work remotely through the app, which enables you to set timers and even make routines – for instance, switch on your heater and open your blinds every morning before you even get out of bed. By using IFTTT, you can also integrate Smartians with other services and devices such as Google Home or Amazon Echo.
