It’s far too often the case that Australian customers get the most exciting tech products weeks or months after the rest of the world - and often even then at an inflated price. So when a company announces they’re going to be doing the exact opposite, we sit up and pay attention.
This week, the Accumulus Energy Group (AEC) revealed they’ll be bringing Blaze Automation’s B.One Hub and smart home product range to Australia first.
Here’s what you need to know:
What is the B.One Hub?
Basically, if you’ve recently dipped your toes into the world of smart home automation with the launch of Google Home, the B.One Hub is the next step you’ll want to really bring the rest of your home online.
“We are thrilled that Australia is leading the world into the next phase of home automation with the launch of the B.One Hub. In a B.One Smart Home or Office, automation goes far beyond turning things on and off” said Anup Raghavan, CEO, Accumulus Energy Group.
According to Anup, “The Hub is an intelligent partner that helps you gain insights into your home, slash power bills, manage your comfort, take charge of your home security and even chat with your home through voice-guided automation in real time.”
Courtesy of a dedicated chipset and AEC’s own proprietary algorithms and app, it’ll not only provide an easy-to-understand action-driven interface for controlling your smart home but also provide key insights. For example, it can track and highlight what devices in your home are drawing the most electricity and contributing the most to your monthly bill.
It’s a smart automation solution that doesn’t just promise to work with just about any newly-released smart appliance out there but also plenty of older ones.
