Piper Makes "Smart Homes" a Reality

A new product is on the line that provides security, automation, and and environmental monitoring - all with one little device, and an app on your phone.

"Piper" is the smart technology that allows you to interact with your home, no matter how far you are from it.  (The dream when it comes to showing and staging your home.)  Homes installed with Piper are fully accessible from afar, and fully responsive to the environmental changes around it. 

Want to turn on the lights, even if you aren't there?  No problem.

With Piper's built in "Z-Wave" functionality (an outlet adapter), you can turn lights, air conditioners, fans, and more, on and off from afar.  This is exceptionally useful for you when you're showing your home, as you don't have to leave your lights switched on for potential buyers, or have your real estate agent arrive early to do so.  With Piper, you're in control.

Want to see what's going on in your home while you're not there?  Flip on the app.

Get a live, widescreen video capture of the room you have a Piper device sitting in, simply by switching on the app.  You can also move it around remotely to get a full view.  If you're a homeowner selling your home, you can use this functionality to keep an eye on the premises from afar.

You can also monitor the environmental changes taking place, with stats and graphs that your Piper app will display.  This includes humidity of the room, temperature, ambient light, and sound level.

Want extra security while you'll be gone for an extended period of time?  Set up some rules.

There is a reason Piper was written about as the "IFTTT" for your home.  IFTTT (If This, Then That) is the idea that "If" a given action occurs, "Then" this response will happen.  You can easily tell Piper "If this door opens, then you will give me a security alert on my phone, send a text message to the rest of my family, and show me a video of the event."  This could also be useful to ensure some or all of the lights in your home come on when the front door opens - ideal for scheduled (or unscheduled!) home showings.
