CastleOS Announces the First Windows 10 Smart Home Hub

CastleOS CastleHUBCastleOS announces the upcoming CastleHUB will be the first Windows 10 smart home hub, featuring voice control with Cortana and the Kinect.

Using Cortana on Windows 10, or the Kinect for far-field control in a room, you can speak to your home. Actions as common as turning on lights, setting moods with color changing bulbs, controlling entertainment systems, adjusting heat and air conditioning, locking doors, monitoring security, watering the lawn, or even feeding the family pet are all possible by voice control and with the CastleOS app. The power of CastleOS with Windows 10 enables everyone to enjoy the highest level of true independent living in their own home, even if they are physically unable to use a mobile app or light switch!

By combining several internal radios along with ports for many external radios, the CastleHUB features support for any smart device protocol. In addition, C#-based scripting, a full and open API, and support for any mobile device, all allow for the most flexible smart home hub in existence. CastleOS controls any brand smart device, and also provides apps for every smart phone: iOS, Android, Windows, and more.

The CastleHUB does not rely on the cloud to perform its duties, it’s all done on the CastleHUB itself. As a result, it puts the userin total control over privacy and security. Additional benefits are no latency between your command being issued and the command being executed, which is all too common with cloud-based systems. If the internet goes down in the home, the system still works, which is especially critical when used for security.
