CubeSensor: Health Trackers For Your Home

3d cube isolated on whiteCubeSensors is looking to help you track the health and comfort levels in your home the same way wearable fitness trackers like the Fitbit Force and Nike Fuelband measure your health.

Simply place CubeSensors throughout your home, one in each room, and get a read on various factors that affect your health and well-being. Specifically, CubeSensors are equipped with seven different sensors measuring air quality, temperature, humidity, noise, light, weather pressure, and accelerometer. A CubeSensor can tell you when the temperature in your home is not comfortable, costing you money, or alert you that your office is too dark to be working without a light on as the sun starts to go down. Plus, it tells you about indoor pollution, ensuring that the air you breathe in your home is fresh and clean.

The idea behind the project comes from consumers growing increasingly interested in data about their own lives, especially where health and fitness are concerned. Yet there’s no all-encompassing product that monitors the health level of your own environment. Knowing that people often care a great deal about the aesthetics of the home, CubeSensors was designed to be discreet and attractive, with the option to be wirelessly connected (and charged periodically) or plugged in. When you shake one, the CubeSensor emits a colorful glow that lets you know whether or not there is any adjustment that can be made to make that room more comfortable, relayed to the user via the app.

CubeSensors come in small, medium and large packs, with two, four, or six sensors respectively and a base station. They range from $300 to $600 with the option to add more cubes or base stations at a later date.

Here are the CubeSensors’ features:

  • Keep your family safe – Young children and the elderly are more sensitive to environment changes. Keep your toddler’s room just right for a peaceful nap.
  • Save money and energy – Avoid overheating in winter or overcooling in summer. Know the right temperature for work, leisure or sleep. Check if lights are switched off.
  • Sleep better – Your bedroom Cube can tell you whether a snoring partner, stale air, temperature changes, a full moon and more are making you restless during the night.
  • Stay in the zone – Set up your thermostat or A/C for maximum productivity. Let the Cubes worry about the right lighting for your office. Open the window before you get a headache.
  • Breathe easily – Avoid the flu. Control your asthma and allergies. Keep away mold. Know the air you breathe beyond just CO2 measurements.
  • Clean or remodel smarter – Not all cleaning and home improvement products are equal. Check which products are less harmful to your family in real-time. Make better choices.
  • Peace of mind – Check for signs of activity when you’re not home. From anywhere, anytime. Activate your webcam only when necessary. Your home isn’t a prison that needs constant live streaming.
  • Be a better neighbor – Keep your neighbors happy. Check if your dog really is that loud when you’re not around. Or if your kids are throwing a loud party.
