The partnership between Quirky and GE continues to pay off for buyers looking to make a smart home without breaking the bank. Seven new app-controllable devices have just been introduced.
Probably the most interesting is the pictured Norm, which Quirky wants you to know isnt a thermostat. Instead, the $80 device controls your heating and air conditioning systems to make your home comfortable at all times.
The Spotter Uniq can be customized to add up to four different sensors, including temperature, humidity, sound, light, and more. It starts at $30, and the price increases depending on how many sensors you need.
Retailing for $40, the Tripper will let you know if a window or door is opened or closed. The Ascend is a $100 smart controller that will let you close or open your garage door from anywhere.
Overflow, which costs $35, will detect any unwanted standing water. The $50 Outlink is a smart wall outlet with a built-in energy monitor. Finally, the $60 Tapt is a smart wall switch that can control both standard and smart bulbs.
The companion Wink app, which can be used to control all of Quirkys devices, has also been updated today. Along with the addition of customizable shortcuts, the app now features an activity feed to show you exactly whats going on in your house.
If you’re interested in jumping into the growing smart home market, Quirky and GE have done a great job creating some really affordable products. I also like the fact that customers can start off small and add devices over time.
