Alea Air is a new "intelligent vent system" from startup Alea Labs allowing homeowners to set and monitor temperature preferences in the home until they're just right.

The vents in the Alea Air system have sensors to monitor ambient air quality, temperature, and then store the home's data in a cloud database. The cloud is then able to determine homeowner preferences for temperature based on weather forecasts, the number of people in a given space, space size, and time of day, Curbed reports.

Launched this week, Alea is now offering an early bird three-vent starter set for $379, with shipping slated for January 2019. The self-installed, app-controlled air vents are loaded with 11 sensors including infrared sensors to track temperature, air quality sensors, audio sensors to ensure the vent isn’t making an annoying wheezing sound, and humidity sensors to measure the moisture in a room.
