At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, iDevices introduced four new products to its growing connected home product line. The additions include the iDevices Socket, Wall Switch, Dimmer Switch and Wall Outlet.
These build upon iDevices' first three Homekit-enabled products; the iDevices Switch (indoor connected plug), Outdoor Switch (rain-tight, dual outlet connected plug) and Thermostat, currently available online and at retailers nationwide. Through the use of Apple HomeKit technology, iDevices provides a way for its users to control their home's lights, outlets, thermostats, and more from their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and with Siri voice commands. The products include the:
iDevices Socket. By screwing in any standard light bulb into the iDevices Socket, users can control their lights from anywhere using the free iDevices Connected app. The iDevices Socket has dimming functionality and a customizable LED nightlight allowing users to easily set the mood for any occasion by changing the light color and adjusting the brightness. The iDevices Socket will be available for sale in the first quarter of the year.
iDevices Wall Switch and Dimmer Switch – By replacing any standard, single light switch with one of these connected wall switches, users can control their home's lighting from anywhere using the free iDevices Connected app. Users can choose between the standard on/off Wall Switch or the Dimmer Switch, both available in the second quarter of 2016. These products each feature customizable LED nightlights and support single pole and 3-way switches.
iDevices Wall Outlet – This product brings the features of the iDevices Switch to a hard-wired version and is designed for those looking to upgrade existing wall outlets in their home. The iDevices Wall Outlet gives users the ability to control, monitor and schedule the power to both outlets individually, using the iDevices Connected app. The iDevices Wall Outlet will be available for sale in the third quarter of 2016.
iDevices Connected. Using the free iDevices Connected app, users can add iDevices products to their home network, securely pair them with their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, add them to a room, set dynamic schedules and add custom photos and names. The app also has the ability to support HomeKit-enabled products from other manufacturers.
