We started this project with a few simple goals in mind:
- Let anyone control their home appliances from their smartphone
- Make it affordable
- Make it easy to set up and use
- Help home owners save on energy costs
We're thrilled to let Kickstarter know what we've come up with...
True to our initial plan, setting up the Nyrius Smart Outlet is simple. Just plug the Smart Outlet into any home outlet, connect your favorite appliance, and control it wirelessly with the Nyrius App.
Turn Electronics On & Off
Wirelessly turn any electronics or small appliances on or off that plug into your power outlet up to 33ft from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone or tablet. Save energy and reduce costs.
Set a Schedule for your Electronics
Scheduling is made simple with everything you need to create a custom timer on a single screen. Create a custom name, choose the time frame you want the outlet to be activated, and select the days of the week. Create any number of additional schedules throughout the day. Using multiple outlets, easily program your coffee maker to turn on every morning when you wake up and have your lights turn off on your way out the door. The possibilities are endless.
One Touch Proximity Control
With just one tap you can ensure that all your smart outlets are enabled with proximity control. Proximity control can detect when your room is no longer occupied and will automatically turn your appliances off.
The Smart Outlet is perfect for indoor lighting, space heaters, fans, A/C wall units, irons, home stereo systems, or any device you want to control.
Nyrius is committed to developing wireless connectivity solutions that offer simplicity, convenience, and reliability. We are continually evolving to fit our customer's lifestyle.

With the success of our previous launches, we're ready to take the next step in home connectivity with the launch of the Nyrius Smart Outlet.
Risks and challenges
Every project has its own set of risks and challenges. From our previous product releases we understand that there are inevitable hurdles to overcome. Design, promotion, components, scheduling production time from factories are all hurdles when bringing a new product to market. Fortunately we do have experience with most of this through our previous product releases. Our biggest challenges include:
Application development can be a tricky and tedious process. While we have the basics down there is still work to be done. Ensuring we release a flawless, bug-free application requires hundreds of hours required to design the app interface and ensure that the functionality of the app is in perfect working order.
Regulatory compliance is needed to ensure that a safe and reliable product is brought to market. FCC and ICES-003 certifications require extensive testing and can be a lengthy process.
Simply put, tooling requires time, money, labor, and acquiring the manufacturing components and machinery needed for production. This is an expensive and necessary process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
