Tech Data has extended its portfolio of smart home products with BeON Home Smart security lighting and Naran’s MicroBot Push device.
BeON light bulbs contain a Smart Module that records and analyses lighting habits and creates a convincing seven-day lighting schedule that can be replayed when home-owners are away, deterring would-be burglars.
The bulbs can also respond to a doorbell with a believable lighting pattern and to a smoke alarm being triggered by turning lights on to provide a visible exit from the property. The bulbs store energy so will work for up to five hours when power is lost.
The Naran MicroBot is a tiny wireless robot that physically presses buttons and switches. Controlled through an app, it can be used to turn home appliances on or off at any time and from anywhere.
