iDevices has introduced the Smart Home Essentials kit, an Apple HomeKit and Alexa-enabled system featuring three iDevices Sockets (connected light bulb adapters), five iDevices Switches (indoor connected plugs) and two iDevices Outdoor Switches (rain-tight connected plugs).
Unlike other smart home systems on the market, the iDevices Smart Home Essentials kit requires no central hub, gateway or bridge. This premium selection of smart home products comes with a first of its kind, exclusive Concierge Service, giving users priority support access and the ability to set appointments with iDevices’ smart home experts for everything from product setup to advanced use tutorials.
This unique Concierge Service offers users priority access to the iDevices team of U.S.-based smart home experts. Customers have the option to schedule a personalized, guided setup to ensure their transition to a smart home is simple and seamless. With the purchase of the Smart Home Essentials kit, users get priority access to the iDevices Concierge Service made up of smart home experts adept at supporting iDevices products and other manufacturers as well. iDevices will also provide personalized tips, tutorials and exclusive promotions to take full advantage of what the Smart Home Essentials kit has to offer. Once customers are setup and ready to go, the iDevices Connected app serves as the central controller, providing users with convenience, security and the ability to control their home from anywhere.
The Smart Home Essentials kit was born from iDevices’ vision that home automation should be as seamless and invisible as possible to the user. Smart home products should enhance everyday life and create peace of mind, not headaches. iDevices set out to simplify and educate consumers with one package that will deliver the ultimate smart home experience that programs and pays for itself. The Essentials kit serves as a smart home foundation which users can easily and dynamically expand upon with new products and customizations moving forward, especially as iDevices expands their product offering. The company just released a line of in-wall solutions at CEDIA in Dallas and also plans to offer the option to build personally-tailored bundle in the future. In addition to working with Apple HomeKit, all iDevices products are compatible with Alexa-enabled accessories and the company plans to announce Android compatibility later this year.
"We wanted to make it easy for consumers to make their homes smart.” said Chris Allen, CEO of iDevices. “This kit serves as the foundation for building a smart home and is an all-in-one solution that users can setup simply and confidently. We have our Concierge Service on hand to walk our customers through the setup process and educate them on how to make the most of their smart home. We think this will help eliminate any apprehension consumers have had about smart homes in general and make it that much easier to enjoy the benefits.”
Three iDevices Sockets
Simply screw any standard light bulb into Socket to turn it into a smart bulb that can be controlled from anywhere using the iDevices Connected App. With dimming functionality and a customizable LED nightlight, users can easily set the mood for any occasion by changing the light color and adjusting the brightness.
Five iDevices Switches
The connected plug makes it easy to control, monitor and program electronic devices like lamps, fans, crockpots, space heaters, humidifiers and more, using voice commands or the iDevices Connected app.
Two iDevices Outdoor Switches
By bringing the intelligence and intuitiveness of the iDevices Switch to the outdoors, this HomeKit- enabled, rain-tight plug allows users to control, monitor and schedule electronics on the exterior of their home by using voice commands or the iDevices Connected app. Ideal for holiday lights, spotlights and outdoor water fountains, the Outdoor Switch has dual outlets for simultaneous control of two products.
