Pressing buttons is so last year! Automate & control your home with the sound of your voice and from anywhere in the world! CastleOS will improve your comfort, safety, and stress levels in day-to-day household activities with the CastleOS Home Automation Software which offers an incredibly detailed and sophisticated home automation experience. CastleOS uses a unique dual device control system that accepts simple voice commands through a Kinect device, or commands through the CastleOS web and mobile application on any Internet accessible iOS and Android smart device (smartphone/tablet), or computer anywhere in the world. Commands to your home are relayed from the Kinect or web and mobile application to your Windows XP computer which can communicate with an unlimited number of interconnected home automation devices such as INSTEON, Z-Wave, UPB, X10, or WeMo via a plugged in INSTEON PLM or USB adapter. CastleOS doesn’t just listen to you, but will also communicate with you using sound confirmation notices and verbal responses to questions and commands.

The Kinect gives your complete control over your home with an accurate and sophisticated whole-house natural language voice recognition system that monitors your home and listens for command prompts 24/7 without relaying interferences from loud music, movies, TV, and other noises. There is no limit to the amount of Kinect devices that can be connected to your home system, but additional Kinects increase the standard 35-foot transmission range. You can control your home from the web and mobile application if you do not have a Kinect device which is very easy to use and lets you save money and energy through intelligent programming, and remote or automated device control for sophisticated device scheduling, event triggering, device grouping, energy expenditure monitoring, climate control, and system security. The web and mobile application also provides smart read-outs for each individual interconnected device showing real-time information about which group the device is a part of, how much energy and money is used, and projected costs from the device.

Click n Dig ClickNDigF6 Item Finder

The F6 Item Finder includes one transmitter, three key ring receivers, and three thin receivers. Double-sided adhesive tape is included for attaching the thin receivers to remotes and other items. Batteries come installed in the transmitter and receivers and an extra battery set is included in each package.
