Mother's home sensor system monitors your whole lifeTiny "cookie" sensors are dispensed through your house, and track anything from your water consumption to room temperature.
Mother knows best. Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET, here at CES 2014. We're taking a look at one of the most bizarre-looking and weirdest named product of the show. It is the "Mother" home monitoring system by Sen.se. All right. So, this white doll here with the glowing eyes is the Mother monitoring system. And it sits in your house. It communicates with your home Wi-Fi, and it speaks to these. These are called "Cookies." They are tiny little monitor sensor things that you can stick to the items in your house, and they will communicate over a proprietary network with the Mother base unit. Now, these things monitor motion. So, you could do things like stick the cookies to your fridge door to see how often you're opening the fridge, you could stick it to a water bottle to monitor how much water you're drinking, or you could maybe stick one in your kid's backpack so that you know when they get home from school. All that data from the cookies is then beamed back into the Mother ship. And you can view all the information on a computer or a tablet or a smartphone, so you can see what's going on in your house. The cookies can also monitor temperature, so you could see how warm it is in each room of your house, for example. It's gonna be available in the spring, and it will cost you $199. That gets you the Mother unit and four cookies. I think it's a cool idea but it looks like it would take a little bit of time to really set up and start using in your own house. But maybe you'd enjoy the data that it ultimately provides you with. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET. For more from the show, check out CES. CNET.com.
