Eliminate the need to plan interior decorating based on the electrical outlets in any room.
Bethesda, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2014 -- For years homeowners had to make home decoration decisions in relation to their electrical outlets. End tables needed to be placed near electrical outlets instead of where the homeowner wanted them. That’s because most electrical outlets are located in less-than-ideal locations. This problem can be even more of a hassle if a wall switch controls that outlet making things even trickier when planning home décor.
e5 Global Innovations has the solution; they developed a low-cost, plug-in solution that allows the wall switch in any given room to control any outlet in that same room. Homeowners and apartment dwellers can configure the room exactly the way they want it without compromise.
The patent pending e5 Relay is a transmitter and receiver pair that plugs into any existing power outlet. Installation is as easy as plugging the transmitter into the switched outlet then plugging the receiver (or receivers) into the outlet or outlets. From there, any and every device plugged into those outlets can be easily controlled from that wall switch. That’s all there is to it.
While at first glance this solution appears to be low tech consider how much of a hassle supposedly high-tech alternatives can be. All of us already have too many mobile apps on our phones and who wants to get involved in the hassle and expensive of high-cost bridge devices that connect to a PC. Who wants to go over to their PC every time they want to make a simple change in a room in their home? The e5 Relay is so elegantly designed as to not even need a wifi network to function. Plug and play takes on new meaning when the e5 is unpacked and plugged in.
The e5 Relay is a combination of transmitter and receiver devices that give anyone the ability to relay the function of a wall switch to any outlet in any home, apartment or office. The devices simply plug into any electrical outlet and starts sending on/off signals wirelessly immediately.
Crowdfunding is sought to take the e5 Relay through performance optimization, the acquisition of certification by Underwriter Labs and the FCC, as well as collaboration open source APIs inviting 3rd party software development, and then mass production of the perfected, finished product.
This crowdfunding campaign ends on October 28, 2014.
