WiFithing Makes the Internet of Things Open to Everyone

Usually, Internet of Things (IoT) platforms are designed to function only with other products by the same manufacturer, and those who need a universal system have to build it themselves, which requires both hardware and coding knowhow. WiFithing, however, is an IoT hub designed to be used by anyone out of the box, with no coding required, and across a wide range of internet-connected products.

WiFithing was originally designed as a hub to zone-control home heating systems back in 2013, but has since evolved into a multi-function IoT platform that can also control and schedule lighting, smart sockets, air conditioning, or any WiFi mains device. In addition, if you do possess the technical knowledge, you can modify WiFithing’s open source software to monitor electricity and gas usage, or control home security systems, such as automated gates, motion sensors, and cameras.

The platform and its slave devices can be controlled via either its own smartphone app or PC interface, using SSL encryption, and can be controlled locally even if you lose internet connection. WifFithing and its slaves are low power, so can even be powered by batteries, allowing access to inconvenient areas.

WiFithing, an impressive platform that can bring the Internet of Things to the homes of noobs and pros alike, is close to hitting its Kickstarter goal; the device has seven days to go with £3,405 to left to raise.
