MacVoices #18039: ShowStoppers – Roost Introduces A WiFi-Based Garage Door Sensor


At ShowStoppers in Las Vegaswe caught up with David Henry of Roost, who showed up a Wi-Fi-based garage door sensor. Not a controller, but a sensor that can determine whether your garage door is open or closed. The companion app will allow you to schedule reminders and query the state of the door, all in a surprisingly affordable package that eliminates the privacy concerns of a camera, or the remote access concerns of an opener.
