So… I bought one. A Rituals Perfume Geenie (https://www.rituals.com/sv-se/perfume-genie.html) First impressions are good. It has some flaws, but nothing I can’t live with. I think the app is the main problem. That, and the inability to connect it to the . Some sort of API exist, because it talks to the app, but I wish it was z-wave instead of wi-fi. Now, the question is, can it be hacked? I’ve opened it up, and if anyone is interested I have pictures somewhere.
Things I’d like to read in a better way is battery status, and the ability to get a warning when it’s low. If it would have been z-wave it could be automateld to be able to turn a smart plug on and charge itself. Preferably over Qi charging. We could also set it to on or off based on if someone is home or not, and what time it is. Intencity based on time of day and scene.
I’m working on an alternative ”version” with different scents, better wi-fi connection, better batterylife. Not so expensive. 3D printed. Will probably take a while, because a lot of other comitments. So if anyone is interested, I’m happy to share thougts and data.
@Vigge , this feels like it could plug right in to that quote you wrote in some other thread? About what a home/house should be, and how to achieve that through technology.
