A crowdfunding campaign for the Fluid One smart home system has launched on Kickstarter for customers in the US. The technology allows you to use your iPhone to point and click to control your gadgets, such as smart lights and TVs. You can also use the system to trigger smart home products with gestures or motion detection.

The Fluid One smart home control system is now crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The company aims to provide seamless integration of your smart home gadgets, allowing you to control them with your movement. For example, you can trigger the devices by gesturing, pointing or simply walking past a sensor.

Alternatively, you can control the Fluid One system via your smartphone; by pointing your iPhone towards smart objects in your room, the relevant controls will automatically appear in the app. You can also use the app to configure and amend your setup.

Fluid suggests that you can replace your current motion sensors with just a few of its smart nodes, connected to a Fluid hub, to create various zones in your home to help you automate your habits. You can also set the nodes to trigger actions based on the time or other sensors. The system is compatible with over 2,000 smart home gadgets, including all HomeKit devices. Fluid One will also support the Matter standard when it launches.

You can currently receive four Fluid Smart Nodes and a Fluid Smart hub when you pledge US$449 to the Kickstarter campaign; this bundle is expected to retail for US$599 in the future. The company is offering a range of packages at this stage containing various numbers of nodes and hubs. Fluid will only ship to the US initially, with deliveries expected to start in August 2023.
