Nyrius Smart Outlet - Control Electronics From Your Phone

CA$ 20,377

221

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.

Schedule electronics to activate and deactivate on any day and time of the week. Once the schedule has been set, the timer will still activate even if you're outside of the Bluetooth range

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.

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==

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==

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.

==Product Tooling==

Simply put, tooling requires time, money, labor, and acquiring the manufacturing components and machinery needed for production. This is an expensive and necessary process.
