In short protocol brickz are an affordable way to give “Internet of things” appliances a way to connect to each other so you can control them from mobile devices , monitor power usage and schedule events and actions.
WHY DO I NEED THEM?
There is a already hundreds of “internet of things” devices from remote thermostats to led light bulbs all of which come with different protocols and their own apps ie. bluetooth, wifi, zigbee, z-wave and the list goes on and on and on and none of them talk to each other. The other big issue for the home automation industry is that new technology is always going to be evolving so its just seems silly to purchase expensive hardware that wont talk to the rest of your house in the near future.
Enter Protocol brickz, which simply allows you to replace the fridge, toaster or thermostats brickz module when new technology is invented without having to buy a new fridge, toaster, thermostat etc. Its a no brainer.
Currently there is three “flavours” of brickz that have been carefully selected and engineered to ensure your home is fully connected from a single app and more importantly be future proof. We have also already started on new protocol brickz, that’s how fast this industry is evolving.
We are currently working with a number of high profile manufacturers that are including the ability to take our protocol brickz to make their products not only smart but brilliant! Due to non disclosure agreements we cant tell you more but I can say we are very excited to say the first products are due for release Q1 2015
