On the heels of Apple’s HomePod release, Phenomenal Industries has announced that they will debut their new wireless home automation hub at InfoComm 2017 in Orlando.
AVPhenom is well known for his innovative product releases each year, with his latest successes being the World’s First! 4K Speakers and more recently the Voice Saver TM remote at ISE in Amsterdam.
With the surge in devices that operate on the internet of things, AVPhenom has developed the first home automation hub developed especially for couples. He calls it the “Smart HUBby”.
“Home automation is a very personal enterprise,” says Phenom, “and the Smart HUBby blends automation with Artificial Intelligence to learn your habits. With other systems, you have address the system with a very formal name like Alexa, Siri, or Google. Smart HUBby is a beloved part of the family, so you activate it by calling it ‘Honey’, just like you would your spouse.” Phenom went on to explain that Smart HUBby requires you to say each command 2-3 times before it will respond with a “Huh?” to let you know it is listening.
Smart HUBby works with your connected home to perform tasks like telling your smart refrigerator to order more beer, randomly lifting automated toilet seats in the house to the “up” position, and changing the channel while you are in the middle of watching a program to check the scores on obscure sporting events.
Being a Phenomenal product, Smart HUBby is compatible with the Voice Saver TM remote as well, at least until the on-board microphone automatically disables itself and Smart HUBby stops listening to you and just does whatever it wants.
Smart HUBby is a small form factor, wireless, automation hub that can plop down anywhere in the house. It is made from a special polymer that actually causes the Smart HUBby’s diameter to expand gradually over time as it becomes more comfortable with it’s position in the household.
Smart HUBby will be for sale on the floor at InfoComm 2017 in Orlando next to the fried gator bites stand.
