For owners of Z-wave-based smart home systems like SmartThings, Homeseer, and Vera, FIBARO has introduced the SWIPE gesture control pad. The SWIPE looks and acts like a 5×7 digital photo frame, but with the swipe of your hand–up, down, left, right, circle to the left, and circle to the right–you can initiate a variety of home automation commands. Of course, SWIPE is also compatible with FIBARO’s own Home Center 2 automation platform, and it is on sale now for $149.
