Wouldn’t it be great if you could leave a small sensor outside to detect temperature changes that would initiate a change on your thermostat, or put one in your washing machine that would send your phone a notice when the cycle is done?

What if you could install a small sensor that would keep track of ambient light that would then trigger your light fixtures to go on when it starts to get dark?

Bart Zimny and Andrzej Pawlikowski developed “Clime,” a mini battery powered sensor that can stick to almost any surface and relay information to an app via Bluetooth 4.0 to your phone.

Both Zimny and Pawlikowski wanted to create an affordable home automation option that would provide all the necessary function creating a “smart home” type product.

The technology is not all there yet, but there are plans to take Clime to all-new heights. The Clime team is working to even include third-party integrations and IFTTT compatibility.

Installation of Clime sensors is supposedly as easy as sticking it on to whatever surface the user wants. It has not really been determined exactly how well these sensors will stick to a particular surface, but when they cost only $15 a sensor, it is not such a huge loss if you do loose one.

Clime sensors are most similar to the $180 Netatmo Weather Station, but at a fraction of the cost. These sensors are expected to last for nearly 18 months before a new battery is needed.

Sensors that have been pre-ordered will start shipping in the US in October of this year.
