Can Knocki make your home smarter? The answer is yes, it can. Knocki is a smart device that turns any surface into a remote control. Smart devices for your home are still in the first stages of a revolution that will change how you interact with your living areas. What’s important with smart devices is ease of integration into your life, the lack of disruption to routine and a noticeable improvement in your life.
Make Your Home Clever With Knocki
The Knocki is a small device that sits on a wall, hidden in furniture (Like tables and countertops) or on a door. It is a small, wireless device that acts as a remote control for your home. Once set up, the smart device makes the area a touch interface. Using a series of taps, it can turn on and off lights, find your phone, send an emergency alert, control the air conditioner, use the television, play music, lock and unlock doors, wake you up, send alerts when someone comes in and out your home and even brew coffee for you.
You may not have a smart home, but that’s fine because the Knocki will make your home smart. There’s no need to get new gadgets, rewire your home or other expenses to upgrade to a smart home. Knocki is able to decipher deliberate taps and knocks to avoid accidentally being set off. The device isn’t triggered by sound, meaning two devices can be in the same area. It is powered by AAA batteries with a life of up to 12 months.
