With the conclusion of 2013, the new year is upon us. For some the successes were consecutive and many; for others not so much. However you faired, 2014 brings with it a clean slate. Perhaps you want to better manage your energy consumption to combat the ubiquitous rise of its costs. Or maybe you want to modernize your residence with the ultra-sleek feel of a smart home. John Storm and his team in mainland China are bringing this to market in a truly affordable and appealing package.
The Plugaway is a device the size and appearance of an iPhone 5 wall charger. It is a pseudo plug that connects to any power outlet into which an appliance is then plugged. With it connected to both the power and the appliance a synergy of possibilities is produced, including timers, dimmers, and remote access. The Plugaway is designed to be controlled from an application downloadable to your mobile devise(s) and is compatible with iOS and Android and soon Windows.
Apart from the savings associated with the transparency of energy consumption the Plugaway can instantly update any room or home into the owner’s specific desire. Imagine coming home late from work and with a tap on your smart phone transforming your living room into the ultimate relax zone. The lights dim to a comfortable glow while the stereo fills the room with your favorite Pandora station set to a soothing volume. The massage chair in the corner begins a deep tissue massage next to the electric fireplace now flickering away. All of this is done before you even open the door!
Now that’s a powerful POP!!
