The new a new smart home system has been designed by OneEvent Technologies to warn you of impending disasters. In research testing, the technology has accurately predicted fire up to 20 minutes before a regular smoke alarm went off. It is expected to work similar way in case of other disasters including floods.
Kurt Wedig, co-founder and CEO for OneEvent Technologies, said: “The OnePrevent system leverages our cloud-based predictive analytic engine, along with data collected by wireless environmental sensors that are constantly measuring critical data points such as motion, smoke, water, moisture, humidity, temperature, and light to learn what’s ‘normal’ within an environment — and then predict disasters before they transpire by alerting homeowners or building managers when those environmental factors become abnormal.”
“As the system begins to collect more and more data, unique signatures can be assigned to specific events that then trigger decisions to be made within the cloud. By monitoring and collecting data from a multitude of data points, the system is able to learn over time and understand say the difference between you burning a piece of toast, or the building being on fire.”
