About

Current technology requires  more and more power outlet. In “old” days you had a tv, a video recorder and for the techno freaks also a simple game console, and maybe a small PC. Today, everyone in the family have a PC, it`s  TV`s in most rooms, and the market is flooded with Blue Ray players, decoders, tablets and mobiles. To be able to supply all that is need a lot of sockets. No matter how much you plan, you have always too little. The current solution is power expanders, or expensive electricians who install multiple contacts. The solutions of Power expanders has been controversial due fire hazard. Smart Connect have developed a solution that can replace many of the power strips, is easy to install, and in less than 3 min. you get 6 new outlets + 2 USB ports for charging.

The problem

The problem??  Not enough electrical outlets in most homes. Today this solved with power strips who can be purchased at most stores, or by calling an electrician.

A Power expander is initially created as a temporary solution, and most authorities and control bodies warn against using this as a permanent solution. Power expanders  are subjected to mechanical stress, angry vacuum cleaners, or you even walk on it. It gathers dust, and the quality is often variable. All these factors can lead to increased fire danger.

Solution:

Smart Connect solves this in a simple and smart way, we remove the wire on the power expander, and assemble the power jacks directly on the back side of our SC outlet.Our patent pending solution  allows us to install Smart Connect for nearly all types of sockets in hidden installations. The first version will be made for the most used European standards, next generation will also be made for US standards.

You install Smart Connect by removing the current decorative front cover outlet. Then insert the Smart Connect's  power sticks directly into the outlet, Fasten it with 4 screws, and you have a permanent and secure solution in less than 3 minutes.minutes.

The pledge will be used to make Smart Connect even smarter, and fitted for other electrical systems.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk with the project is the distribution abroad Norway. We already have a distribution agreement with one of Norways biggest retail chain! To build a proper and effective distribution network is goal nr. 1 and will be the most expensive part of the project.
What if the product fail? this is something that you always think of when you introduce a new product. You can use hundreds of hours testing in a lab. but its when the end user getting it, you get the answer. SC will be tested at a certified testlab in Norway to be sure that the quality, and safety is 100%.
