He stressed that "this system of home device con- trol through a Smartphone is in 'pilot' and its commerciali- zation should be completed in a period of three months." "We, however, propose that the installation should be per- formed by any person, through an application availa- ble at an affordable cost, so the user will have control over the On and Off functions of the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, etc." Jose de Jesus Dzib said the support and encouragement of the members of the acade- mic staff of the Faculty of En- gineering made this idea pos- sible. "Thanks to the training and learning it was possible to develop this type of tech- nology," he added .

Mérida, Yucatán, May 20, 2014 -. Students of Mechatro- nics Engineering at the Auto- nomous University of Yucatan (UADY) designed and manu- factured a device for home automation and energy effi- ciency, which expects to be marketed in three months. This technological innovation was created by José Dzib Sán- chez, Moisés Armando Pech Córdova y Henry Javier Se- rrano Echeverría cofounders of the company "Vanderdroid". Dzib Sanchez explained that in addition to the automated control in homes, the device can exert control and care of electronic devices and custo- mize the use of any and all facilities. To this end, stu- dents of the Faculty of Engi- neering designed new gene- ration plates or dampers which can be connected to a router via WIFI system so that anyone can use it. "With this device, the ap- pliances in the homes are protected of potential over- voltage," said the UADY stu- dent adding that the devices that are connected to their gadget and can be controlled from anywhere in the world U A D Y s t u d e n t s d e s i g n d e v i c e f o r h o m e a u t o m a t i o n a n d e n e r g y s a v i n g P a g e 3
