Synchronise appliances using network card

New company develops networking card to synchronise appliances

May 17, 2012
Electric Imp

A new start-up called Electric Imp has created a system where users can control their household appliances through a network connection.

The technology works through a modified version of an Eye-Fi card, which will be inserted into different machines and appliances in order to synchronise and control their operations.

Users can then utilise functions on their appliances through an iPhone or Android smartphone.

Founded last year by former iPhone engineering manager Peter Hartley and former Gmail designer Kevin Fox, the Electric Imp device will be released as a developer preview bundle in June and the first compatible devices later this year.
