Koto is a new range of stylish and easy to use smart sensors that help you sleep better and keep your family healthy by monitoring your indoor environment. Koto is an update to the award-winning CubeSensors and today launched a crowdfunding campaign exclusively on Indiegogo to bring the improved sensors into our homes by spring time.
As CubeSensors, the Slovenia-based startup has already shipped thousands of indoor monitoring sensors to over 50 countries worldwide, collecting over 500 million environmental readings and helping thousands of families and offices. Based on the feedback from existing users, the team developed the new generation of sensors with a fresh design, new name, and the new ability to detect dust and approaching storms. All to help you keep your home even healthier.
The new Koto family consists of three smart sensors:
-Koto Blink, the entry level sensor, helps make any room more comfortable by monitoring temperature, humidity, light and noise. It only needs to be recharged twice a year and can store data offline for weeks, which makes it ideal for rental apartments, vacation homes, and a great travel companion. -Koto Air is an upgrade to Koto Blink, which can detect dust and harmful gases in the air you breathe. The ability to monitor air quality and pollution makes Koto Air perfect for bedrooms and nurseries, especially in homes with children, the elderly and asthmatics. -Koto Storm makes sure you’re always just a glance away from home by connecting to your WiFi. It has a minimalistic display that can show the current temperature or let you know when you receive a new email, so it can act as a notification center for your living room or office. Koto Storm is also packed with indoor sensors and can even detect approaching storms, so you can plan your outdoor activities better and protect your home during storm season.
By placing a Koto sensor in any or every room, you can use the Koto app to learn how to adjust your indoor environment to sleep better, stay healthy this winter or be more productive. Koto sensors are also a good first step towards a smarter home. Their real-time measurements can be used to regulate your AC or turn off the lights through IFTTT, while developers can build their own integrations with the Koto API.
“Food labels have changed the way we think about our food, we want to do the same for your home environment,” said Aleš Špetič, Koto cofounder and CEO. “It’s not just about discovering degrees and percentages. Koto lets you know what you need to do when it matters the most, so you can keep your loved ones safe and healthy.”
The new generation of Koto smart sensors is compatible with existing CubeSensors devices, but brings more flexibility and styles to fit the different needs of more rooms and buildings. By supporting their Indiegogo campaign, you can now get an early bird Koto Blink for 69 USD, Koto Air for 119 USD and Koto Storm for 179 USD. Early bird Koto sensors will start shipping worldwide in February 2016 and are also available in larger bundles that can cover more rooms in your apartment, house or office.
