Yonomi is a cloud platform and an app that, together, allow “Internet of Things” devices in a user’s home to follow predefined routines. The user uses his or her iPhone or Android smartphone to create routines such as automatically turning on the lights when he or she arrives home, or turning down the thermostat during certain hours of the day. Many such routines can be created, allowing the user’s smart devices to react appropriately to his or her daily routine. Yonomi works with connected thermostats, lights, fitness trackers, and home appliances, without the need for separate controlling hardware.
Notion produces small proprietary sensors that provide data about changes to a particular environment. These changes include movement, vibration, temperature, natural frequency, sound, light, and moisture. The sensors can be installed anywhere in a home or business, and once they connect to the Internet they can communicate information such as whether a door is open or closed or what a room’s temperature is. Notion offers sensors, a wireless “bridge,” and a mobile app that provides notifications, giving users peace of mind wherever they are.
