iHome Bolsters SmartHome Product Line, Introduces New Bluetooth Speakers, Docks and Headphones at CE Week 2016

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) - iHome, a leader in award-winning speakers and portable devices, will be showcasing a lineup of new products that will be available for this year's holiday season at CE Week. iHome's CE Week display (Table 206) will showcase all new products from the company's expanded smart home product line, as well as several new docks/clock radios, portable Bluetooth speaker products, and headphones. CE Week takes place June 22-23, 2016.

Expanding its portfolio of smart home technology products, iHome will be showcasing two new SmartPlug products, the iSP6 (MSRP $39.99) and iSP8 (MSRP $49.99). Building upon the success of the iSP5 SmartPlug, the new iSP6 and iSP8 products both allow users to control the devices plugged into them from anywhere via a well designed iHome app, or from within the room using the iSPR4 (MSRP $19.99) remote control (optional for the iSP6; iSP8 comes with a remote in pack). The iSP8 also features energy monitoring that allows users to keep an eye on power usage, helping them save money on energy costs.

For greater smart home control, iHome will be showcasing its innovative iSS50 (MSRP $79.99) 5 in 1 SmartMonitor, an advanced environmental multi-sensor that alerts users to changes in room temperature, humidity, sound, light and motion. By integrating iHome's new iSS50 within a smart home, users will be able to automate functions based on environmental conditions within their homes, such as automatically turning on lights when sound sensed, turning on or off fans based on room temperature, turning on a dehumidifier when humidity levels rise, and more.

Designed for people who want the convenience of controlling their small appliances remotely, and those looking to add more smart functionality to their home, the iSS50 SmartMonitor works with Smart Plugs (sold separately) to turn on/off connected appliances and lights and works with other HomeKit-enabled accessories to set triggers based on any of the 5 sensors. In addition, iHome's line of SmartPlugs are compatible with leading platforms including Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, SmartThings and Wink. The new iHome SmartPlugs will be available in August and the SmartMonitor will be available at major retailers in September.
