Even if you’re not a techie, you will see the beauty of this project. Especially if you rent your dwelling. Benki is a compact, clever, smart outlet plug, that has a light sensor, temperature sensor, and a microphone. This mighty little device helps you to control a vast number of your other devices – heaters, fans, baby monitors, cameras, lighting fixtures, you name it. All these things, plugged into Benki, become easily programmable (and controllable) right from your smart phone. Neat! The implementation is as easy as plugging Benki into your existing outlet. No cables, no installation mess, no ginormous home automation system prices. And the best news – Benki is currently Kickstarting, so you can take advantage of the introductory price.
