We strive for automation in every aspect of our life. Smart devices are the new norm when it comes to appliances, but replacing regular appliances with smart devices can prove to be expensive, difficult, or downright impossible in certain aspects.
Smart products are everywhere these days, from voice assistants to fully automated houses, and not having these products can make you feel left out in this technological era. That is where Adaprox’s Fingerbot Plus comes into action.
Switching for switches
The Fingerbot Plus is exactly what it sounds like. It is a small robot with a finger-like extension that is used to control switches. It can be attached to switches and is controlled via Bluetooth or the Adaprox Home App. It can also be pre-programmed to activate or deactivate switches at times or in intervals, depending on your needs.
The tiny automaton is also fully compatible with modern-day smart assistants such as Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. This allows you to control switches using voice commands. The Fingerbot Plus also has a manual touchpad that you can use to control the switches without having to remove the bot themselves.
The device is an improvement upon Adaprox’s previous iteration. It has a higher battery life and a maximum force output of 15N (1.5kg). It also has a further range compared to its predecessor.
The Fingerbot Plus comes with a number of different types of extensions, making it customizable so that it can be adjusted to different types of switches accordingly. With a few of these tiny gadgets, you can automate many aspects of your daily life. The applications are only limited by the functionality of the switches themselves and your imagination.
The Fingerbot Plus just had a successful Kickstarter campaign and is available for pre-order on Indiegogo starting at $25. This makes it a significantly cheaper option than totally replacing old appliances with smart ones. The relatively cheaper price tag also makes it the more suitable choice for people who want to make that switch towards having a smart home.
