Do people want smart homes to go with their smartphones?

Answer: The makers of Sentri think so.

Sentri is billed as a smart dashboard for the home, allowing users to remotely access information and video streaming from their home. The device, which will be available for $249, provides data on temperature, air quality and humidity, as well as capabilities stemming from the inclusion of a microphone, video camera and motion detector. Users can receive alerts about what’s happening in their home, and the device, the company says, will learn the user’s patterns and adjust accordingly. The device can warn of a fire, an unlocked door or a noise that might signal intrusion.

The device is now amidst a Kickstarter campaign, and offers similar functionality to devices made by Vivint and Piper.
