Roost have developed a smoke alarm reporting system in a 9 volt battery profile so it fits in and works in any smoke alarm. Another example of being able to use existing components and technology to bring the huge installed base into the IoT. Spoke to Roost's CMO David Henry at CES Unwired.

Looks just like a 9 volt battery and has two smaller Lithium batteries inside so maintains the 5+ year power supply, but also has WiFi, a processor and software, an audio detector tuned into alarm sound and no matter where you are, notifies to your smartphone when alarm has sounded or if the battery needs replacing. RRP $35. Availability May this year. Innovative and I want a couple, but not sure about the price point versus 9V battery...

Wearables, IoT and IoMe!

Observations from first night at CES. Attended CES Unveilled.
So much IoT and I of Me stuff here, it's unbelievable to see how the enabling technologies (chips and standards) are being combined with user and sector expertise to produce everything from networked tape measures to pool thermometers. Oh yes, and we have moved from plants that tell you when they need water (via Twitter) to plants that water themselves! Lots of fashion and jewellery stuff as the technology becomes small enough to be inside just about anything with all the heavy lifting, analysis and connectivity happening in the mobile phone or on the Net via WiFi.
The meek and the sleek are about to inherit the earth (from the geek)!
My first impressions were not wrong. This turned to be a very interesting and enlightening week!
