Motorola Connected Home Gateway home automation all-in-one hits the FCC with Verizon tags

ImageWe first got our eyes on Motorola’s Connected Home Gateway home automation box during CES 2012, and now that it’s passed through the FCC it should be ready to do its all-in-one magic in real consumer’s homes sometime soon. What makes this device special is its ability to speak more than one of the various wireless home control protocols currently in use, easily connecting to, controlling and spitting out macros to make multiple things happen with a minimum of user interference or setup. Want to dim the lights, lower the temperature and turn on security cams as soon as you step outside your door? It can do that. This will all be a part of Verizon’s Z-wave based Home Monitoring and Control system at some point, if you’re still wondering what possibilities are out there, check out our CES demo video embedded after the break.
