About this project

 Inexpensive motion control for LIFX, Phillips Hue, Ikea Tradfri and Sonos speakers.


 

 

Trajectio turns on your LIFX, Phillips Hue or Ikea Tradfri lights and Sonos speakers when motion is detected in a zone. Zones are defined by you and can be rooms, hallways etc.

After a period of no motion, Trajectio will turn off all devices assigned to that zone. You can set the timeout period to keep devices turned on in less active areas.

If music is already playing, Trajectio will momentarily pause it and play a doorbell chime through your Sonos speakers. It will also send you a mobile notification, so that you never miss a delivery.

The Trajectio unit is small and sleek, with beautifully curved edges - so it looks great in any room. Wifi is built in and there is an ethernet port for wired connections too. We aim to deliver glossy colour options of White and Black.

Zones define where you would like to track motion. A zone is usually a room; such as the living room or kitchen, but can also be things such as doors, windows and hallways. This gives extra flexibility, allowing large rooms to be split into different zones and have different schedules or timeout periods if they are less active.

Trajectio makes it super simple to assign sensors, lights and speakers to zones and will even create your first zones for you, based upon the names used for the smart devices it finds in your home. For example, if your LIFX bulbs are named Lounge 1 and Lounge 2, when Trajectio is set up, it will automatically create a zone called Lounge and assign both of those lights to it; meaning you only need to pair the sensor to begin tracking.

Switching to LED bulbs will have already saved your household approximately £35 a year. Having your lights automatically turn off when you're not in the room could save you a further £15. Extend the life of your bulbs and speakers by automatically turning them off when you're not using them.

Risks and challenges

Trajectio started as a home project to overcome an awkwardly placed light switch and get more out of expensive home smart devices already purchased. After realising its impact, I'd love to bring Trajectio to your home too. I am currently on a sabbatical from my role as a Technology Consultant and as you have seen in the timeline, have been working on Trajectio during my spare time for the last 16 or so months. The product works great and the next steps are:

1) Mass produce the case which holds the unit - since this is currently 3D printed which is expensive
2) Test the unit in other people's homes.

With both of these challenges, I have quantified the risks as low - having already made contact with factories who are capable of mould injecting the case and have already secured beta testers.

I can testify how useful Trajectio is and really couldn't live without it now. I hope you will experience it too and get the most out of your smart home investments.
