How to use xfio2 to connect smart home controllers
You’re probably familiar with the concept of a smart home controller: a smart device that allows users to control their living room or living room-sized entertainment system using the internet.
The most basic controller currently on the market is the Nest Cam, which can be controlled by a single cable, or the Harmony AV, which is a Bluetooth-enabled remote control for a wide variety of smart home products.
Both are compatible with existing devices, but the Harmony Cam was built with a much smaller footprint, while the Nest AV is much larger and more complex.
The smart home ecosystem has become so large that it has created a need for a simpler solution for connecting devices, such as smart home speakers.
With the new xfion e3, you can connect your Nest Cam to any smart home product using a USB-C connection, and even to your Windows 10 PC.
You can even use the xfium e3 as a wired remote for an existing smart home device.
The device itself has a very slim profile, and it’s a bit more expensive than the Nest Chromecast.
That said, if you don’t mind spending $50 on a controller, the e3 can be a great investment if you’re looking for a cheaper way to connect your existing smart device to your home.
