>>>HAVE YOU EVER LEFT THE HOUSE AND FORGOT TO TURN SOMETHING OFF LIKE MAYBE YOUR LIGHTS, THE TV, THE CURLING IRON? WELL, OUR NEXT GUEST HAS A SOLUTION THAT PROMISES TO MAKE YOUR HOME SMARTER. HERE WITH ALL THE INFO, PLEASE WELCOME ROY VELA WITH HIVE. HEY, ROY, WELCOME BACK TO “HOUSTON LIFE.”>>THANK YOU.>>THIS STUFF IS SO COOL. I AM SO INTO LIKE THE SMART DEVICES AND ALL THAT. BUT EVEN FOR REGULAR FOLKS WHO ARE MAYBE NOT AS TECH SAVVY OR NOT REALLY INTO IT, WHAT YOU GUYS OFFER REALLY MAKES IT EVEN BETTER FOR FOLKS WHO DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH TECHNOLOGY, RIGHT?>>THAT’S PRECISELY THE POINT. SO IN EFFECT, YOU DON’T WANT TO BUY EQUIPMENT THAT GIVES YOU MORE WORK TO DO.>>RIGHT.>>YOU WANT THE EQUIPMENT THAT YOU BUY AND THE THINGS YOU PUT THIS YOUR HOUSE TO MAKE YOUR HOUSE WORK FOR YOU INSTEAD OF YOU WORKING FOR IT. SO YOU’D RATHER HAVE YOUR HOUSE REACT APPROPRIATELY WHEN A DOOR OPENS, THEN YOU HAVE TO TAKE THOSE ACTIONS.>>I BOUGHT A SMART PLUG DEVICE. I STILL HAVEN’T INSTALLED IT BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE THE TWO MINUTES TO LOOK IT UP AND FIGURE IT OUT. SO INSTEAD OF BUYING A BUNCH OF SEPARATE DEVICES THAT PEOPLE OFTENTIMES CAN’T FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET ALL CONNECTED TO ONE, WHAT YOU GUYS OFFER IS A SOLUTION TO GET SEPARATE DEVICES TO WORK TOGETHER, RIGHT?>>YEAH, IT IS ABOUT AN ECOSYSTEM OF DEVICES AND IT’S ENOUGH TO START THE FIRST STEP IN YOUR SMART HOME ADVENTURE, RIGHT? TO GET ENOUGH OF A — THIS IS A BOX I’M BOXING RIGHT HERE. THEY’RE BULBS, THERE’S MOTION SENSORS, CONTACT SENSORS, THERE’S A THERMOSTAT. AND ALL OF THAT WORKS TOGETHER PRETTY SEAMLESSLY, EASY TO INSTALL. THERE’S NO NEED FOR AN ELECTRICIAN. IF YOU CAN UNSCREW A LIGHTBULB OR PLUG IN A PLUG, YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH HANDLE THIS.>>PRETTY EASY. SORE IF YOU CAN STICK SOMETHING — OR IF YOU CAN STICK SOMETHING ON THE WALL OR DOOR.>>YOU PUT THE TWO PARTS, ONE ON THE DOOR SIDE, ONE ON THE WALL SIDE. WHEN THE DOOR OPENS OR CLOSES, OUR SYSTEM RECOGNIZES THE DOOR IS OPEN FOR CLOSED. I MUTE PUT ONE ON MY FRO DOOR, AND AT 3:00 WHEN THE DOOR OPENS I KNOW THE KIDS ARE HOME SAFE.>>INTERESTING. THAT SENSOR, IF IT’S ON YOUR FRONT DOOR, YOU’RE GETTING AN ALERT ON YOUR PHONE.>>CORRECT.>>SAYING THAT THE DOOR HAS BEEN OPENED.>>YOUR iPHONE, OR ANDROID, YOUR APPLE WATCH. THE NOTIFICATIONS CAN BE SET HOWEVER YOU LIKE THEM AND YOU CAN HAVE THINGS REACT. SO THE DOOR OPENS AND THE LIGHT GOES IN IN THE FRONT HOLDS FOR THEM. I GET — FRONT HALL FOR THEM. FRONT DOOR OPENS, TURN ON HALL LIGHT.>>THAT COULD GO ON A CABINET OR ALL KINDS OF THINGS.>>ON A COOKIE CABINET THAT YOU DON’T WANT OPENED. I SEE THE FRONT DOOR OPEN AND THEN THE COOKIE CABINET. SOMETHING IS UP.>>PARENTS OUTSTARTING THEIR KIDS. WHAT REALLY SETS HIVE ASIDE AND APART FROM YOU KNOW, THE CONFUSION OF THE SMART WORLD, IS THAT YOU GUYS HAVE CREATED THIS ECOSYSTEM OF SORTS WHERE ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT SMART DEVICES CAN LIVE UNDER ONE UMBRELLA. SO CAN YOU SORT OF EXPLAIN HOW THIS WORKS? I JUST THINK IT’S MIND BLOWING WHEN YOU’RE ON — WHETHER ON A TABET OR SMART WATCH OR SMART PHONE, ALL OF THIS STUFF CAN BE CONTROLLED.>>YEAH. THE POINT IS TO BRING THE PRICE DOWN. SO PART OF THE CHALLENGE IS YOU END UP FOR A LOT OF MONEY, WITH ONE OR TWO ITEMS. THIS IS A BOX OF THE SORT OF BASE SETS TO ENABLE YOU TO START TO DO SOME OF THE SMART HOME THINGS TOGETHER AND CONTROL IT FROM WHEREVER YOU ARE. SO YOU MICE TURN ON A CROCK POT ON YOUR WAY HOME. YOU MIGHT GET A NOTIFICATION THAT A DOOR OPENS OR CLOSES OR THERE’S MOTION IN A ROOM THAT YOU DIDN’T EXPECT. WE HAVE A CAMERA THAT SHOWED THE CAMERA APP AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT’S GOING ON IN A ROOM. YOU CAN INTERACT WITH THE ROOM. MAKE A DOG BARK FROM YOUR CAMERA OR SPEAK TO SOMEONE IN THE ROOM OR HAVE THEM SPEAK BACK. AND WHETHER AN iPAD OR AN IPHONE OR APPLE WATCH, THAT ALL WILL WORK SEAMLESSLY TOGETHER.>>THAT IS — IT JUST SEEMS LIKE SUCH A HUGE DIFFERENCE. BECAUSE A LOT OF THESE SMART DEVICES, THEY HAVE AIR OWN APPS. BUT INSTEAD OF LAUNCHING THE THERMOSTAT APP AND LAUNCHING THAT APP AND LAUNCHING THAT APP, ALL THE USER HAS TO DO IS LAUNCH THE HIVE APP AND THEN THEY CAN SWIPE THROUGH AND SEE THE LIVING ROOM AND THE CURLING IRON AND THE LIGHTS AND THE CAMERAS AND ALL OF THAT, RIGHT?>>THEN WE INTEREST GREAT WITH THIRD — INTEGRATE WITH THIRD PARTIES AS WELL. WE’RE ON AMAZON ALEXA. SO MY COMMAND IS ALEXA, TURN EVERYTHING OFF. GOOGLE HOME, SAME THICK. — SAME THING. AND WE’RE LOOKING AT WHAT OTHER KINDS OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES SO YOU HAVE ONE APP THAT CONTROLS EVERYTHING IN YOUR SMART HOME.>>I THINK IT’S AWESOME PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO DO THINGS MAYBE THEY NEVER THOUGHT WERE POSSIBLE. YOU CAN SAY HEY, ALEXA TURN THE LIGHTS OFF OR TURN THEM OFF IF YOU’RE IN THE LIVING ROOM. EVEN WITH DECORATIONS, TOO.>>OF COURSE, YOU CAN DO IT FOR HALLOWEEN OR CHRISTMAS. YOU COULD TURN LIGHTS GREEN, ORANGE OR BROWN. YOU CAN HAVE LIGHTS GO ON AND OFF. PUT THEM ON A SCHEDULE. AND AGAIN, YOU CAN DO IT FROM YOUR WATCH, FROM YOUR PHONE, OR THROUGH ALEXA. ALL CONTROLLED AS YOU LIKE. THOSE ARE TURNING ON THE PUMPKINS OR BLOWING UP THE SCARY HALLOWEEN GUY. THAT CAN ALL BE DONE REMOTELY.>>WOULD YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY ACTIVELY LAUNCH THE APP COULD YOU ALSO SET THAT EASILY ON A SCHEDULE FROM ONE OF YOUR DEVICES?>>YOU CAN JUST PUT OUT A TIMER IF YOU WANT. SO THAT IT BLOWS UP AT NIGHT. TURNS ON AT NIGHT. TURNS OFF IN THE DAY. IT’S SIMPLE ENOUGH.>>THE CHANGING LIGHTBULB THAT WE’RE SEEING NOW, THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF SMART BULBS. BUT THAT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR KIT.>>EXACTLY. YOU’RE JUST SCREWING IN A BLUB OR FOR THOSE HALLOWEEN ORNAMENTS, JUST PUTTING A PLUG IN AND PLUGGING THE ORNAMENT INTO THE PLUG AND YOU CAN SCHEDULE IT. YOU CAN CONTROL IT. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.>>I THINK IT IS AMAZING THIS ENTIRE NEW WORLD THAT WE’RE IN. AGAIN, WE’RE DOING THINGS THAT PEOPLE NEVER WOULD HAVE MANUALED. MY GRANDMOTHER — IMAGINED. MY GRANDMOTHER, MIND BLOWN. SHE NEVER WOULD HAVE MA’AMED HALF — IMAGINED HALF THIS STUFF.>>IT GOES TO OUR PROMISE, WHICH IS LET’S GET LIVING. STOP DEALING WITH ALL THAT STUFF. LET IT REACT TO YOU AND YOU CAN GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE, BECAUSE FRANKLY PLAYING WITH THE KIT IS ONLY LIKE GEEKS FOR ME. EVERYONE ELSE WANTS TO GET ON WITH EVERYTHING ELSE.>>ROY VELA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY.>>MY PLEASURE.>>HIVE HAS WELCOME HOME PLANS
