Hey JD @JDRoberts
I’ve just spent a some time reading about Nubryte and their current capabilities. I agree they have an uphill challenge in convincing folks to buy multiple units (or even one) at $200 price point.
Got me thinking.
It’s expensive if it’s just a posh lightswitch, if you only have one unit, the intercom is less than desirable. Couldn’t really care too much about the alarm feature in its current form, but other features are interesting.
It’s cheap if…
It had Alexa functionality, removes a Dot purchase$
If it had a beautiful Sonons music control UI removing a need for $40 Pico remote which isn’t that functional anyhow.
It removes Zwave light switch $50+ Or scene controller $120+
It removes need to purchase room motion sensor and temperature sensor $40
It removes the need for Arlo or Dropcams $100+
It could integrate with ST of course.
It they made this smart home friendly and did not try to build their own echo system it could make smart home much easier to deploy in core rooms etc. One device, many uses in one neat package.
I’d actually buy a bunch and save a bundle. I fear it’s my pipedream for a company to be truly progressive but it has potential.
Now back to that intercom, that would be icing along with a remote client to my Honeywell Alarm panel or similar backed instead of that standalone thing they did.
Good to dream but I just wrote to them and said the above…
