Seed Labs has introduced its new Silvair Control wireless controller lending simple control of common home elements, such as blinds and lights. The Silvair Control is said to be "gesture-driven" and to include Bluetooth connectivity for use with tablets and smartphones. It does not need wiring or anything burdensome like that, and it is powered by a battery that lasts for up to 8 years, depending on usage. Mounting is performed using magnets. It, like many controllers before it, aims to make having a smart home simple.
