I wanted to create a simple way for people to start making their homes smarter. The technology has been around for years, but it hasn’t been easy to use.
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
Today, Droplit founder Bryan Jenks has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for a new, easy-to-use smart home system that allows users to integrate and control all of their smart devices from the Droplit Cue remote or the Droplit smartphone app.
Droplit is unique in that it not only provides a single button to turn an entire room on and off, but also has the capability of setting “scenes” which allow users to switch on several devices to a predefined state all at once. For example, a user can set a scene so that when they walk through their front door, the lights turn on, the air conditioning starts up and their favorite song starts playing while they prepare for dinner.
“I wanted to create a simple way for people to start making their homes smarter,” says Jenks. “The technology has been around for years, but it hasn’t been easy to use. We’ve made an awesome mobile app as well as an actual customizable universal remote control that you can hold in your hand and control smart devices with the touch of a button.”
Droplit is compatible with existing smart devices on the market, like Phillips Hue Smart Bulbs, LIFX Smart Bulbs, SONOS Smart Speakers, Belkin WeMo and more. The company aims to continue to expand on its device compatibility as new smart devices are introduced to the market.
Jenks has set the project’s funding goal to $50,000- once the campaign raises the $50,000 needed to cover the first round of manufacturing, he will be able to bring the product to market for the masses. Some of the first campaign backers will receive the complete Droplit Home System, including the customizable Droplit Cue remote, for $139 or the Droplit device, for in-home or off-site control via smartphone app, for just $89.
Droplit will be running its Kickstarter campaign for the next 30 days. To learn more or to pre-order the device today, visit the project’s Kickstarter campaign page at http://bit.ly/DroplitKS.
Droplit is a new start-up that focuses on making smart home integration as simple and seamless as possible. The company’s latest creation, the Droplit Home System, uses WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and Z-Wave to connect and control all of a home’s smart devices from just one app or remote.
