Habey launches Kickstarter crowd funding campaign for HIO Wallpad drop-in PoE in-wall universal Android controller
The ARM-based open architecture in-wall Power over Ethernet (PoE) touch controller has been designed to connect and automate almost anything in your home or office.
The HIO Wallpad completely connects and controls the entire home or office in one centralized, easy-to-install unit. Running off the latest generation ARM Processor, the Android powered Wallpad is universally compatible with a number of different control and home automation applications.
By consolidating the data and power into one port with Power over Ethernet (PoE), the HIO Wallpad delivers power and network connectivity using only one standard Ethernet cable. The Wallpad includes the low-voltage PoE module to adhere to building safety codes so customers do not have to worry about running new high-voltage electrical lines to power the unit.
It is expensive to have licensed electricians and installers work in the home or office. With the Wallpad, installation is now as simples as running an Ethernet cable through the wall without violating building codes, creating fire hazards, or voiding insurance claims.
Visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the Habey HIO Project Wallpad become a reality.
