Not surprisingly, the Internet of Things is making a big splash here at CES 2015. As part of that push, BeeWi, a company better known for making various wireless products, is showing off its home automation platform. The BeeWi platform has been available in Europe, Canada and parts of South America for some time now, but the company announced that it's ready to bring it over to the US. In similar fashion to Belkin's WeMo line, BeeWi's home automation offerings include a mobile application and an array of modular sensors and trackers.

Altogether, BeeWi has a total of 10 products in its lineup, including four lightbulbs, temperature and heat sensors, as well as smart and energy-saving plugs. BeeWi says it plans to launch stateside in the next few months; it just needs to find distribution partners. Once it does launch, BeeWi will have to take on WeMo, Belkin's own home automation platform -- a popular choice among consumers. Naturally, the BeeWi app, which is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone, is one of the most important elements of the system, since that's the way to control all the accessories. Those sensors and trackers all feature Bluetooth 4.0 and will be sold for $20 to 25 each when they become available in the states.
