Techstination feature for Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Making a smart home a little less cloudy.    Hubitat Elevation is the name of a hub designed to control smart home gear…without the need for some other company’s cloud.   And that’s the key difference between this and its rivals.  A big deal if you are concerned about security.   The small box is designed for do it yourselfers according to Director of Business Development Patrick Stuart..

“Once you’ve got that installed, it allows you to connect to a wide variety of consumer available sensors and devices.  So both Zigbee and ZWave devices are very common out there.  Things like motion sensors, contact sensors…so you can tell if a door is open or closed.  All the way up to dimmers or switches and light bulbs.”

The Hubitat Elevation is impressive….with built in support for a wide range of smart home gadgets…and you can find it for about a hundred dollars.   For more head to Hubitat.com.
