WiseSec, a provider of mobile platform solutions, has launched Genii, an IoT smart home automation product, on Indiegogo. Genii allows users to connect any device operating via an infrared remote control, including televisions, stereos, air conditioners, electric shades, lighting and other appliances. Users can then control these devices from within the home or anywhere in the world with internet connectivity.
WiseSec's smart home solution is comprised of self-powered “Geniis,” easily attached to the eye of an infrared device, and a “Genii Hub” that communicates with the Geniis via Bluetooth technology. The Genii application allows users to configure devices in under one minute and then control them remotely from a mobile phone or tablet.
Pre-orders of the solution are currently available in a package of three Geniis and a Genii Hub which enables global connectivity. This package is being offered at a special Indiegogo introductory price of $115 for orders placed by September 12, 2015. A package of three Geniis without the Genii Hub is also available for $65.
“Currently available solutions to manage devices in the home often require the user to invest in purchasing new devices as well as be within close proximity to exercise control,” said Vadim Maor, Founder and CEO of WiseSec. “Genii's innovative design enables the control of any existing infrared-controlled device – from any location – resulting in numerous practical applications and benefits.” And the launch of Genii marks WiseSec's entry into the consumer IoT sector.
