Driving the next generation of smart homes

Understanding Drives True Intelligence

Without knowing what’s going on, how can a smart home know how it should react? To be truly intelligent, a smart home should understand what’s happening in the home, know what to do, and then do it for you. Automatically.

Of course, a smart home should make it as easy as possible to control your home, but sometimes you want a smart home to just take care of some things by itself. This is where Nuro shines.
 

Continuous Tracking and Learning

Nuro has developed a robust sensing framework with machine learning capabilities that continuously tracks and interprets a variety of conditions around the home — without relying on cameras or other invasive technologies.

These capabilities allow Nuro to gather much deeper insights about patterns of activity, so providers of home automation and control, security, and other systems can deliver services that are uniquely tailored for every home, and for every room.
 

True intelligence comes from understanding and learning.

Smart Sensing

With its advanced sensing technologies, Nuro constantly tracks activity and gathers information about what’s occurring throughout the home — room by room, day by day.

Going beyond a standard motion detector, Nuro sensors monitor a variety of conditions, including occupancy, temperature, ambient light, and energy usage (with built-in metering and load analysis). They can distinguish different types of activity.

Self-Learning

With built-in machine learning capabilities, Nuro recognizes and learns patterns of activity, continuously examines that activity, and uses advanced analytics to make decisions autonomously.

Once Nuro identifies and learns patterns and preferences, you don’t need to take any action, unless you want to. Nuro teaches itself and defines the appropriate action to take, such as turning on the lights when you enter a room — and turning them off when you leave.

No Invasion of Privacy

The secret behind Nuro’s sensing capability is its patent-pending software, which turns a standard infrared sensor into a signature-based sensor array that identifies a range of activities and direction of motion. It can even tell the difference between a person and a pet.

However, your privacy remains protected. Because Nuro uses non-intrusive motion sensors, there is no need for a camera — and no “big brother” feeling of being watched all the time.
