ENTRY DESCRIPTION

A nervous system for your home. Enabling the place you live to take better care of you, your family, and the planet.

Hestia is a suite of wireless sensors that lets your home understand you. It senses things like temperature, light, sound, air quality, and occupancy - throughout your home and in real time - enabling your house to react to you, and your family, to improve the quality of day-to-day life. The Hestia Room Sensor can measure the forces which affect our comfort. It visualizes them in an intuitive way, making us conscious of these forces, so that we may take action to create environments that make us happy. When multiple sensors are placed throughout a home, they paint a detailed picture of how each space feels, allowing our homes to fine tune each experience automatically; adjusting lights and fans, opening windows, controlling curtains, and driving audio devices. The Hestia weather station allows our homes to react not just to what’s going on inside them, but what’s happening outside too; automatically opening windows to let in the fresh air of pleasant breeze, or closing them when rain arrives. It can also make our homes more sustainable too; adjusting the thermostat to keep you comfortable, but never wasting energy when it’s not needed. Hestia makes our homes more comfortable, more sustainable, and more caring.
