Anyware Solutions Announces World's Smartest and Smallest Lamp Socket Adaptor and Launches Kickstarter Campaign

The Anyware Smart Adaptor™ Adds Sensor-Rich Functionality to Lighting; Simplifies Home Control and Monitoring for Everyone

COPENHAGEN--(Marketwired - April 01, 2016) - Connected Home/Internet-of-Things (IoT) startup, Anyware Solutions, today announced their first Smart Adaptor for home automation. Its unique patent-pending design makes it the world's smartest and smallest connected lamp socket adaptor.

Easy to install and simple to use, the Smart Adaptor offers unprecedented functionality -- from simple light control to climate monitoring -- thanks to its built-in ambient light, sound, temperature and humidity sensors.

"We are announcing the Anyware Smart Adaptor™ on Kickstarter, because it's the perfect venue for startups like ours to engage in close dialogue with future customers and create game-changing solutions," said Jan H. Christiansen and Morten Bremild, co-founders of Anyware Solutions. "Funding will help us get our product prototypes to beta testing this summer, with schedule for delivery to backers in early 2017."

The Anyware Smart Adaptor™ is designed to assist everyday routines and create peace of mind for families: Did the kids arrive home from school? Did we remember to leave some lights on, so that the house looks occupied tonight? Is the indoor climate healthy throughout our home?

Its form factor and placement in a lamp socket is ideal for a wide array of uses in addition to controlling the light. It is configured and controlled via an app (available for iOS and Android) with a cloud solution as backbone.

All functionality is presented in small secure programs in the accompanying app (called 'scenes') that can be activated manually by one tap. In addition, the scenes can be run according to schedules or set to constantly monitor, for example, indoor climate conditions or 'listen' for intrusion whenever the house is empty.

"Our design is completely user-driven," said Jan H. Christiansen. "We discovered relevant and meaningful functions that household users want, and then we added sensors supporting such functionality into the smart adaptor for selected lamps in rooms throughout the home."

Users may configure their own scenes, and the Anyware Smart Adaptor™ comes with an already pre-configured set of scenes, for example:

Preventive burglar control -- It combines advanced lighting control and sound detection capabilities with geofencing (home proximity detection) to deter and detect intrusion attempts;

Baby alarm -- To let their children fall asleep with lights on, users can set the light in the child's room to be dimmed during 20 minutes and then be notified if there is still noise in the room after the light has switched off;

Advanced lighting control -- Scenes such as Home Cinema will allow users to easily set the ideal movie watching mood light with one tap on a smartphone;

Indoor climate monitoring -- Users will be notified if the temperature or humidity sensors detect poor or unhealthy indoor climate conditions;

Remote monitoring -- As the Anyware Smart Adaptor™ can be controlled from anywhere, it is ideal for holiday home security and monitoring.

"We looked at the market and found that most smart home solutions and certainly connected light bulbs, come with a quite limited feature set, are complicated to install and use, and often require additional hardware to enable communication with a smartphone," said Jan H. Christiansen. 

"We are challenging the conventional wisdom of the smart home industry, and empowering the user by introducing the world's smallest smart adaptor with the richest functionality yet, giving users the freedom to choose the light bulbs that they want in their home," said Morten Bremild. "We approached the engineering challenge from the angle of what you could do with a smart adaptor, if it were designed properly."
