From our smartphones to our smart appliances and our smart TVs, everything in our lives is getting smarter all the time. Why not include a smart home into the mix? Choosing to dip its digital feet into the Internet of Things is ZOTAC, a company you may know better for its graphics cards, motherboards and ZBOX mini-PCs. Now, they’ve announced the new ZOTAC Cozee line of smart home devices.

Unlike some more closed off systems like the WeMo series from Belkin, the ZOTAC Cozee is designed to work alongside any of your other Zigbee-compatible smart home devices. At the heart of this smart home is the Mini Gateway. This will connect to your smart home devices both over WiFi and Zigbee, granting you full control by way of the iOS and Android mobile app.

In addition to the Mini Gateway, ZOTAC has also announced the Cozee Smart Plug and Sensor. The former acts as an intermediary for any device you plug in, like a desk lamp, allow you to control them remotely, set schedules and monitor energy consumption. The latter is a multi-purpose sensor for detecting temperature, humidity, brightness and motion, information that you can then leverage for more smart home functionality, like adjusting your thermostat.
