|FIBARO SWIPE allows users to create personalised ‘scenes’ through automated solutions, from alarm systems to lighting
At ISC West 2016 (Booth #28065), FIBARO, a leading global manufacturer of wireless intelligent home automation and control devices, will showcase the FIBARO SWIPE, a wireless gesture control pad that allows users to control the smart devices, including arming/disarming security panels, in their home with a simple wave of their hand.
SWIPE - wireless gesture control pad
SWIPE recognises six simple gestures – up, down, left, right, circle to the left, and circle to the aright – which can be assigned and used to control any Z-Wave smart home device or other connected smart products such as door locks or alarm panels, TVs, music systems and more. With SWIPE, swiping down at bedtime could easily trigger a ‘Good Night’ scene that turns off the lights, locks the front door, and arms the alarm system. Swiping left before leaving the home could activate the alarm without having to touch the system or enter a code.
“Consumers want fast and simple ways to control their smart home devices,” said Rich Bira, managing director of FIBARO USA. “SWIPE allows users to create personalised ‘scenes’ through automated solutions, from alarm systems to lighting that are conveniently triggered by motions.”
With a wide range of mounting options, SWIPE can be installed just about anywhere in the home. The gesture control pad looks like a picture frame and can easily be placed in plain sight on a desk or hanging on the wall. Homeowners can also have SWIPE installed behind drywall, artwork, or home décor as advanced gesture control technology is capable of detecting a specific set of hand motions through a variety of materials. When concealed, gestures and actions are confirmed by SWIPE via a built-in buzzer that signals response.
Advanced 3D Near-Field technology
Available in either a sleek black or elegant white, the 5x7 sized frame is both lightweight and wireless, and can either be powered by four AA batteries or micro USB. SWIPE also features advanced 3D Near-Field technology analysis further developed by FIBARO which removes the need to use native switches or buttons on the device itself.
