Home Automation Made Easy

By gathering information about activity and conditions in the home, Nuro allows home automation products and services to perform tasks in a more intelligent and more proactive manner. In some senses, Nuro helps automate the process of automation.
 

Smart or Obedient?

The state of home automation has made great advances in recent years. Many terrific products and services have made it easier than ever to control different aspects of your home. By pushing a single button to launch a series of tasks or speaking to an assistant to re-order groceries, today’s “smart homes” can do some amazing things.

However, all of these great products share one common weakness:

They are not really “smart.” They’re just obedient.

In other words, many home “automation” solutions today aren’t really automated. They can do great things, but they don’t do much on their own. To perform all of their magic, these products need to be told what to do, whether through programming, pushing a button on an app, or talking into a box.

There’s a better way: help a smart home teach itself.
 

Giving Smart Homes an Edge

With Nuro, there’s no need for any special programming or complex setup. Nuro-enabled devices use advanced sensing and machine learning capabilities to gather information about the home. Not only do they use this information to teach themselves. They also share that information with home control and automation systems.

Supplied with these insights, smart homes can be truly smart and manage everyday tasks automatically. A Nuro-enabled home watches and learns and then takes action for you, based on activity in the house and your personal preferences. Here are some of the things that are possible when a home understands its surroundings:

  • Turn lights on and off as you walk from room to room
  • Turn on the alarm system when you leave the house
  • Turn down the heat if there’s no one home
  • Send an alert when someone seems to have fallen
  • Notify you when something “unusual” happens
  • And more…

All of this can happen automatically, simply because the home has learned what to do and when to do it.
 

Insights that transform home automation

Aware

Nuro’s advanced sensors intelligently detect activity and continuously monitor various environmental conditions — day by day, room by room.

When this information is shared among Nuro devices and with home automation systems, a smart home can develop a deeper understanding about what’s happening in the home.

Adaptive

Based on each room’s conditions (occupancy, activity, ambient light, etc.), a Nuro-enabled home can easily determine the appropriate action to take.

This understanding makes it possible for home automation systems to adapt their behavior to create a customized, individually tailored experience for the home’s occupants.

Autonomous

The ability to understand usage patterns and preferences allows Nuro devices and Nuro-enabled systems to know which action to take and then automatically take that action, when appropriate.

Because there is no programming or user-initiated action required, Nuro-enabled systems can act in complete autonomy, making it easy for a smart home to manage everyday tasks automatically.
