Since the whole idea of a “smart home” became a reality there’s been a whole lot of different hubs which have been available for purchase. Some of these hubs do nothing more than connect your disparate gadgets to IFTTT so you can control them all while others are a bit more fully featured and are actually ‘smart’ enough to preemptively control your gadgets before you even realize that you want to use them (e.g turning the light on before you enter a room).
Matrix takes the concept of an IoT ‘hub’ a step forward. By beefing up their Matrix hub’s hardware capacity and releasing a devkit, their beautifully designed device is able to download home and business apps — allowing it to be used in many ways at once. You can control Matrix with speech, gestures, or a mobile app. Since developers will have full access to the capabilities of Matrix, you can imagine an immeasurable amount of applications which this forward-facing product will be bringing to your home.
