Wondrwall is the latest product in a growing line-up of in-home artificial intelligence systems. It manages home security, heating, energy saving and lighting together. It features 13 different sensors that track sound, movement, luminosity, heat and humidity, among others.
Wondrwall’s CEO Daniel Burton said: “There is no limit to what automation in a house could do. This is just the beginning,” he said.
“What people want is that thing that makes their life easier, and that’s what Wondrwall does. It constantly saves them money, it keeps them secure, it keeps them safe.
“It takes all the running of the home and does it all for you. That’s what we recognise.”
However, Wondrwall isn’t the first product that offers such features. Google has already done so when it purchased Nest in 2014 for £2.48billion.
Although according to its creators, Wondrwall is the only product that brings everything under one system.
“There’s smart home technology out there, but the reason it has not taken off is that people have done different sectors of smart homes,” explained Burton.
“Companies have done heating, done lighting, done security. Now, what we’ve done is brought all of it together – but given the home the ability to control it.
“You have very expensive systems, like Control4, that are all linked in, but they still don’t have the intelligence that Wondrwall has. You have smart technology, and our vision is to create the intelligent home.
“We’ve made a solution where anybody can afford to have a full home automation system.”
