Being the most affordable smart plug on the market at less than half of the price of other brands, intelliPLUG allows everyone to experience a smart home at the fraction of the cost of other devices. Plus, with its quick three-step setup process, users simply plug the intelliPLUG into any electrical outlet, download the cnct app, pair the plug with the app, and in less than 60 seconds the user is able to control any “non-smart” appliance with ease.  Additionally, intelliPLUG is small, attractive and blends in with any home environment.

This easy-to-use platform makes controlling user’s appliances seamless through the iOS and Android apps, and with the Amazon Alexa functionality, user’s simply enable the cnct smart home skill and they’ll be able to access all of cnct’s high-tech features with nothing but the sound of their voice. The cnct platform is built from the ground up to work with even more up-and-coming technologies such as Google Assistant and HomeKit in the very near future.  As additional implementations are added, the existing intelliPLUG will work without the need for product updates or upgrades.

A sampling of daily uses of the intelliPLUG and its features:

  • Make coffee when you want it through the app – 6am one day, 9am the next.
  • Forgot to turn off your curling iron? No problem, simply go to the app and hit “off.”
  • Want to set the mood for a romantic dinner? Just go to the app and turn the lights and stereo on before you get home.
  • Kids have homework – set the timer of the TV to control the amount of time they’re able to watch or play video games.

“With intelliPLUG, we wanted to create the most affordable smart plug on the market, and after dozens of prototypes and countless software iterations, we finalized the design and are ready to bring the cnct intelliPLUG to the world,” said Adam Anderson, founder, cnct. “Now everyone can have a smart home and be able to seamlessly control their appliances directly from their phone or tablet, while home or on-the-go.”

Sengled Boost Reinvents the Light Bulb as a Wi-Fi Repeater

March 24, 2015 Comments off

SingledAtlanta, March 24, 2015 – Sengled, makers of intelligent lighting products that integrate consumer electronics with LED bulbs, today announced the release of the Sengled Boost, an LED light bulb with a built-in Wi-Fi signal repeater that can boost connectivity levels throughout the home. The first product of its kind offered at an affordable price, the Sengled Boost incorporates two antennas in each LED bulb, providing the connectivity levels users need to get a strong signal anywhere in the house and power devices throughout their connected homes.

“People typically have a single Wi-Fi transmitter in their home that provides a strong signal near the device, but signal performance diminishes the further you move away from the transmitter,” said Johnson Shen, CEO of Sengled. “That’s a problem if you’re connecting in other rooms to use smartphones, tablets, gaming or entertainment consoles or any of the popular new home automation products since the signal may be obstructed by walls or objects or the device may be too far away to get a strong signal. Sengled Boost fits in standard lighting fixtures, which is a perfect solution since fixtures are typically mounted overhead and free from obstructions.”

Sengled Boost not only strengthens Wi-Fi signals, it provides users with eco-friendly, energy efficient, long-lasting LED lighting that can be controlled from a free app via a smartphone or tablet. The app allows users to configure the Wi-Fi signal and control light levels. The Sengled Boost LED light bulb doesn’t have to be turned on to boost the Wi-Fi – the light can be dimmed or turned off while the Wi-Fi signal boost function continues, making Sengled Boost perfect for connecting devices in any room – day or night. Once configured, Sengled Boost saves the setup information so users don’t have to setup a new connection for each use.

Using Sengled Boost is a great way to de-clutter the home with a wireless Wi-Fi booster that enables users to seamlessly access a strong signal and maximize the value of the technology they use every day. And since Sengled Boost LED bulbs come in a variety of sizes to fit most light fixtures, they can wireless strengthen Wi-Fi signals in virtually any home.

Sengled Boost is another bright idea from Sengled, the company that reinvents the light bulb by combining it with the consumer electronics that make modern life better. To learn more about Sengled and Sengled Boost, please visit www.sengled.com.
