1.Standby power detection: We are the only product in the market place that can detect un-used devices in standby mode, which enables us to send push message to your mobile device to remind you to turn it off. By doing this, we aim to change user behavior to adopt a more sustainable usage pattern for the long term.
2. Geofencing: Our app has the capability to detect whether you are at home or away automatically through your smartphone. If you like, you can set the app to turn off devices when you are away from your home, and to turn back on once you are coming home. There will be no more "Ooops, I forgot" moments and at the same time it saves energy.
3. Extremely low power usage: By leveraging 915 MHz RF, valta sockets use less energy than any of our competitors (0.6 watts). Most energy management solution uses Wi Fi, which consumes more energy, and in many cases, more energy than the standby power consumption of the devices they are monitoring. Why should anyone use a power saving system that might use more power itself?
4.Better connectivity: Most of your neighbors are using Wi Fi for their internet connectivity, so interference is a given. By leveraging 915 MHz RF, we get better range and less interference than Wi Fi or other solutions. Valta sockets has minimum range of 100m, while WiFi modules have maximum range of 50m.
5.Sleek Design: Most similar products in the market place are clunky and unpractical. Sockets are large and cover up the entire wall plug, which takes away from practicality of the product. Valta sockets are sleek and minimalistic. Plugging one in does not interfere with the customers from using the other plug for other purposes. On top of that, the system simply looks good.
