In the past few months, we have covered a long list of products iPhone users can take advantage of to make their homes smarter. We keep seeing new ones every single day though. Acaia happens to be a modern coffee brewing scale for iPhone and Android. The goal of this product is to improve your coffee brewing skills with more precise measurements.
The Scale is accurate to 0.1 of a gram. It has a built-in stopwatch and touch sensitive buttons. The buttons are liquid proof which helps. The companion app helps you monitor your coffee and get data from the scale. Acaia has a powerful micro-controller chip inside and looks quite elegant. It is up for funding on Kickstarter.
Speaking of products that make your life easier, smartbell happens to be a video doorbell that you can connect to from your iPhone. Just bring your phone and an Internet connection to see who’s at your door. Users can video chat with their guests. Here is how it works: when someone rings the bell, you get a notification, which you can refuse to take if you prefer. If you accept the call, you can chat with your guest.
smartbell has free iOS and Android apps. It is compatible with Z-Wave devices. You do have the option to set up a “do not disturb” schedule. The device supports multiple users. smartbell even has a motion sensor and the ability to take pictures of your visitors. Night vision capability is also offered.
