The intelligent home has become a reality
The company Movistar launched the advanced HomeStation device,
which allows the wireless connection of computers or notebooks, printers, video game consoles
and the television so they can be run as a single unit.
The new device consists in two independent
wireless telephones that work as remote controls for the home, allowing you to use the electric appliances.
In addition, it has a wi-fi modem that configures a wireless network.
The HomeStation can also be controlled
with an iPhone and the technology is
expected to be expanded to other smart
phones in the future.
The home gadgets that can be connected are
computers, notebooks, video games,
printers, televisions, and a music box, which can be connected to a stereo
This type of technology is the first of its kind to be launched in
Latin America and it will go on sale in Santiago this week, though it will soon be
available to the rest of the country. The service will cost $9,990 Chilean
pesos per month.
For the moment the service is expected to
be made available to Movistar customers who have double or triple broadband packages.
