Ezcontrol is a centralized unit that lets you control virtually every electrical device you have in your home — all from your smartphone. From your table lamp, to your garage door, to your AC, ezcontrol gives you the power to control all your devices whenever you want it, wherever you are. 

Most devices in your home are controlled by two connecting technologies:

1) Infrared, like your TV´s, cable boxes, and receivers and 2) RF items such as your garage door or roller blinds. Taking advantage of these already existing connections, we created a control unit that understands and controls your devices through technologies they already use. One control, one app, that simple.

So why’s it different? Most home automation units use a connecting technology that requires you to utilize some kind of adapter in order to use your existing devices. With ezcontrol you can use devices you already have in your home, and remove the hassle and expense of unnecessary adaptors or replacing your devices.

          

You can set up timers

 Have custom scenes set with one-tap control

And even set scenes remotely, everything the way you want it, just a touch away!

 You can setup your device by choosing from our cloud catalog

We have over 5000 preset devices already available in our cloud catalog. Brands like Samsung, Apple, York, TWC, and Honeywell are already available, and the list keeps growing.

Or use the learning feature where our app assimilates to your remote control. There is no limit of how many devices you can add!

There are a variety of devices on the market today that use RF and IF connecting technologies. Using them along with ezcontrol you can automate virtually every electrical device you have in your home. We are currently user testing all available devices and will be selling the best on our website later on.  

After 13 days, our ezcontrol campaign has funded over 132% of our goal! Now, we'd like your help to reach our first stretch goal of $25K. This goal will help us move to a community-based cloud catalog.

Currently with our cloud based catalog you are able to search for devices which have already been registered by eztechs, or you are able to program in your devices with the learning feature. By moving to a community-based approach, whenever a device is uploaded it will be added to the catalog and available to all users! This is an exciting step to add additional value to our customers by expanding the ease of use and simplicity of the solution. A benefit for all those in our eztechs community! And of course, all ezcontrol backers will be upgraded to the community-based cloud catalog upon reaching our goal!

If you are new to Kickstarter and still have trouble backing on your reward, please go to the step by step support page.

We are now in the final stages of licensing and production. Those stages are crucial and we could use a hand from you, someone who believes that things can be simple, smart and affordable.That is why we chose Kickstarter to launch ezcontrol. A platform that congregates a community of early adopters that could be the ambassadors of a simpler way of controlling their homes.

The full retail price for ezcontrol will be $99 so you’re getting a deal by supporting us on Kickstarter. We will not be selling ezcontrol in retail until all Kickstarter rewards have been shipped.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

The risks linked to this project are essentially the ones you would find in any technology project when taken to a mass production. We worked hard to minimise risks in all of the aspects of the project, but some things are out of our hands at this stage:
— We have secured most of the manufacturing aspects as we work with large manufacturer used to handle large production products
— Despite the thorough effort we put in anticipating any potential problems ahead, there is always the possibility for unexpected, minor alterations having to be performed, also by FCC. This might lead to slight delays in lead time.
This being said, we’ve put a lot of work in securing our development and production plans, we are confident to deliver ezcontrol by eztechs by June 2016.
