Logbar has come up with its unique wearable technology for smart homes and they call it the Ring. The Ring is all set to take finger wagging to a new level altogether owing to its precise gesture recognition technique. It enables people to communicate with several devices in their home by just waving their finger in the air.
The initial version of the ring was not flawless, as its size was too big and its material (zinc) used to interfere with the proper functioning of the gadgets. However, the latest version has dealt with those problems, with a decreased size and the material no more interferes with the signals and functioning. The built-in 3.7-volt battery of the ring makes it function continuously for three days.

Reemo is yet another smart home system, which enables you to operate several devices in your home not physically but through actions and gestures. Reemo you can use to control devices individually and you could also create scenes wherein a number of devices and systems you can control at the same time.
