Habey has launched a Kickstarter project for a hackable, Android-based “HIO Wallpad” home automation controller that offers PoE for drop-in deployment.

Habey USA briefly noted its HIO Wallpad home automation universal controller earlier this week when it announced its open-platform, Freescale i.MX6-based HIO-EMB-1200 single board computer. The stackable HIO SBC forms the basis for the Android-ready HIO Wallpad, which is designed to control a home’s lights, HVAC system, and thermostat, among other smart devices. You can program the HIO Wallpad to control indoor, outdoor, and perimeter security lights, as well as security surveillance systems, says the company.
