Could your home use a little more monitoring? Check out Mother: a robot designed to keep tabs on your home life, that’s making a stir at CES 2016.

Weighing only 1 lb and standing just 6.3 inches tall, Mother seems portable, but really isn’t. She needs to be plugged into an outlet and your wireless router to work. Instead of making Mother mobile, she works with an array of color-coded temperature and motion sensors called Cookies. Stick a cookie to your door and it becomes an alarm system. Put one on your mattress and it will wake you up on time. Stick one on your water bottle and it will track your hydration. 

The robot can send alerts to your email or phone. It also lights up the main Mother unit and makes a sound to alert you, too.

Mother and its sensors have been designed to blend into your life and adapt to your behavior without requiring any effort, training or care from you,” reads the Website.

 

The company insists that all data gathered by Mother is yours alone, and that the data can be deleted at any time, too. Users can also use a pause button to stop Mother from recording things, they’d rather weren’t committed to her memory.

Mother can be accessed using any Smartphone, or a computer with an up-to-date Internet browser.

You can order Mother online for $299.
