SMARTHOME “AUTOMATE THIS!” WINNERS
FIRST-PLACE WINNER: $1,000 SMARTHOME SHOPPING SPREE
The Automated Bathtub
Theral Mackey, Atlanta, Georgia
Enjoy a relaxing bath with no preparation
involved. The automated bathtub would
draw the perfect bath with the push of a button by setting water temperature,
water height and soap/bubble bath additives.
It would also be able to turn on the jets for Jacuzzi-type bathtubs and
be controlled from anywhere in the house, or even on the way home from a hard
day of work. The bath could also be scheduled to start when the alarm clock
goes off in order to have a bath waiting before the day starts.
SECOND-PLACE WINNER: $500 SMARTHOME SHOPPING
Kids’ TV Timer
Andrew Logie, Attleboro,
your kids’ TV viewing addiction. This
device controls and regulates the amount of television children watch. When kids use up one hour for the day or any
time period set by parents, the TV automatically turns off.
THIRD-PLACE WINNER: $250 SMARTHOME SHOPPING
“Smart” Key Fob
Jon Deutsch, King of Prussia,
Have your house respond to when you come home or
when you’re leaving. A small,
wireless-enabled pocket key fob would act as a personal identification device
that would alert the house when the homeowner leaves or returns, such as
locking or unlocking doors and windows, lowering or raising the thermostat,
setting or deactivating the alarm system, turning on the stereo, and more.
