Nyrius' Smart Outlet, available now on Kickstarter instantly transforms any outlet into a Bluetooth-enabled one, creating a smart home at the palm of your hand. The Smart Outlet allows users to easily control their electronics or small appliances such as coffee makers, lamps, space heaters, stereo systems and more via any iOS or Android smarphone or tablet

The Smart Outlet is easy to connect. Simply plug the Smart Outlet into any home outlet, connect any electronic or small appliance, and control it wirelessly via the sleek and intuitive Nyrius Smart Outlet App. The user-friendly app allows users to control and manage a number of operations including:

-Turn Connected Devices On & Off: Users can easily turn electronics or small appliances on or off via the app in order to save energy and reduce costs.

-Schedule Electronics: Via the app, users can create a custom timer on the app. Just choose a custom name for the plugged-in electronic or small appliance and pick a time frame and days of the week of when you want the outlet to be activated. For example, users can easily program their coffee maker to turn on every morning when they wake up or their lights to turn off on the way out of the door every morning.

-Proximity Control: Proximity control can detect when your room is no longer occupied and will automatically turn your appliances off.

Nyrius is offering the first 50 backers that pledge $40 CAD ($31.76 US) to become an early adopter and a beta tester of the Smart Outlet. Backers who make this pledge will be able to test the product before anyone else, provide feedback and make a difference in the final development of the product.
