Roku has expanded its smart home lineup with the introduction of a Home Monitoring Starter Kit, which allows users to monitor their homes with a range of sensors and devices.
The starter kit includes a hub, a door sensor, a motion sensor, and a keypad. The hub connects to a user’s home Wi-Fi network and serves as the central control point for all the sensors and devices. The door sensor and motion sensor can be placed around the house to detect when doors and windows are opened, or when there is movement in the house. The keypad can be used to arm and disarm the system.
The kit can be controlled using the Roku app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices. The app allows users to receive alerts when sensors are triggered, and to arm and disarm the system remotely.
The Home Monitoring Starter Kit is part of Roku’s broader smart home lineup, which includes the Roku Smart Soundbar and the Roku Wireless Subwoofer. The company has been expanding its smart home offerings in recent years, as it looks to diversify its revenue streams beyond its core streaming business.
The Home Monitoring Starter Kit is priced at $179.99 and is available for purchase on Roku’s website and at select retailers.
