At the International CES 2015, Zuli showcased a smartplug that can be controlled from your smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy – just plug Zuli smartplug into any standard US outlet, connect any light or appliance, and download the free app.
If you have a minimum of 3 Zuli smartplugs (Presence Starter Pack), then the smartplugs will form a Bluetooth mesh network which allows them to talk to each other.
Zuli smartplug also leverages Apples new iBeacon technology to bring pre-defined micro-location actions to your home. Using a combination of techniques with iBeacon and Bluetooth LE technology, Zuli can accurately locate what room you are in, even when your phone is in your pocket. Using 3 smartplugs and our proprietary location algorithm, the network detects what room you are in and will adjust your devices to your preferences.
On/off control: Lights and appliances up to 1800W
Dimming: Works with incandescents, dimmable LEDs and CFLs up to 300W
Location based automation: Use the presence feature to customize how your devices respond when you enter or leave a room
Energy monitoring: Get real time and historical energy metrics of your devices with estimated costs
Away detection: Zuli smartplugs know when a room is unoccupied and can shut off unused devices for you
Scheduling: Set lights and appliances to turn on/off at any time, even when you’re not at home
