New York startup Tuo will soon release their third Matter over Thread product, coming on the back of their Smart Button, and the more recently released Contact sensor. This, while not a total surprise (its existence was revealed via an FCC filing), was not part of the company's original lineup, which also included a smart lock in addition to the other two devices mentioned above.
Desktop Mount Sensor Listed as the TUO temperature sensor, it offers a little more, so in addition to the now mandatory humidity sensor it can also detect VOCs (volatile organic compounds), much like the offerings from Eve (Eve Room), and Aqara (Aqara TVOC- sensor). At $49.99, it's certainly cheaper than the Eve version, although it doesn't come with a display. It comes with a versatile stand, allowing it to be used on desktops etc., but it can also be wall mounted. Since it uses a CR2032 coin cell battery, you can also set it up without any loose wires.
Since it uses Matter over Thread, you'll need a Thread Border Router and a Matter Controller, but for many HomeKit users this will be a given as all Apple Home Hubs are already Matter Controllers, and some are also Thread Border Routers. According to Tuo's website, shipping will begin within the next 1-2 weeks.
Tuo Smart Button (Special Edition) In other news, Tuo has also just launched a limited 'Special Edition' version of its popular Smart Button in black, complete with a set of glow-in-the-dark stickers. You can check out our review of the smart button below.
