About

Meet LampLink.

LampLink was developed to allow simple and reliable control of a home's electrical outlets by utilizing the existing wiring in the home.

One LampLink Transmitter can control up to four LampLink Receivers
One LampLink Transmitter can control up to four LampLink Receivers

Plug a LampLink Transmitter into an existing switch-controlled electrical outlet and then plug up to four LampLink Receivers into standard, always on electrical outlets.

No rewiring necessary, no smartphone needed.

LampLink enables anyone the ability to extend control of their existing switch controlled outlet to always on outlets without needing to hire an electrician to rewire their home.  On average, an electrician would charge $260+ to wire an existing switch to an outlet.  This price includes the cut and repair of drywall to run new wire to the outlet, along with material and labor costs.  

Sometimes it's not possible to modify the home's wiring, such as in an apartment or dorm room -- LampLink can be added and moved from outlet to outlet with ease.

LampLink implements a simple wireless protocol that enables LampLink devices to quickly communicate with each other without the need for Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity.  Once the devices are paired, you never need to interact with them again.  

Simple pairing process.

Out of the box, LampLink devices are ready to be paired -- LampLink truly is plug-and-play, making it incredibly easy to setup.  Plug them in and wait a couple seconds for the blue light to stop flashing.

LampLink Receivers are ready to pair out of the box.

Adding an additional LampLink Receiver is as easy as pressing the button on the Transmitter and plugging in the new Receiver.  The new LampLink Receiver will discover the Transmitter and they will automatically pair in seconds.

Press the button on the LampLink Transmitter to enter pairing mode.

Technical Specifications.

Evolution of LampLink.

LampLink began as a proof of concept in November 2014. We felt the current products on the market were either too complicated or cumbersome, so we set out to design a simple plug-and-play solution to solve the problem. LampLink is on its fifth iteration, each one better than the last. We've run LampLink modules for hundreds of hours to ensure both the hardware and firmware are rock solid and bug-free.

Risks and challenges

LampLink is a consumer grade electronic device that incorporates controlling your home's electrical outlets with standalone digital wireless communication.

In order to legally sell LampLink within the United States, it must comply with FCC 15.107:2015, FCC 15.109:2015 and FCC 15.249:2015. This allows us to confidently say that LampLink will work as advertised and will not interfere with other household electronics. The associated costs for FCC testing can add up quickly, which is why we are working with regulatory consultants in order to minimize the amount of time and money spent to acquire FCC certification.

In addition to FCC, LampLink should comply with UL standard UL60730-1. This standard certifies LampLink as a safe electrical control device for use in household applications.

We are also going to be having the PCBs fabricated and assembled by qualified contract manufacturers. Using automated pick and place machines and standardized processes will yield consistent quality of the LampLink devices. We've reached out to multiple contract manufacturers who in turn are obtaining quotes from multiple electronics distributors for parts procurement in order to minimize any supply chain issues.
