iDevices® and Hubbell Incorporated Debut First Co-Developed Technology Products at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES)
LAS VEGAS – Jan. 9, 2018 – iDevices, the preeminent brand in the connected home industry, introduces the first two in a growing line of co-developed products launched with other portfolio brands of parent company Hubbell Incorporated. The Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger allows users to control, monitor and schedule their charger from anywhere with their mobile device, while the Ceiling Fan Switch gives users the ability to control fan speed and lighting with their voice or mobile device.
“With these co-developed products, the first of many innovations to come, we have successfully combined iDevices’ vast IoT expertise with Hubbell’s 130 years of manufacturing and distribution experience,” said Chris Allen, president and founder of iDevices. “Our core goal has always been to enhance people’s lives and evolve the way they interact with the world around them. We have achieved that goal with Hubbell, and together will continue developing new smart home solutions that transform the way we live.”
The compact and powerful EV Charger gives users the ability to remotely control, monitor and schedule the charge of their vehicle from anywhere with their mobile phone and the free iDevices Connected app. Users can track their vehicle’s charging status, get an instant alert if their vehicle is unexpectedly unplugged, and set custom charging schedules and time delays. The EV Charger was developed with Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems, a division of Hubbell Incorporated.
Like all iDevices products, EV Charger doesn’t require a hub, works with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant, and is compatible with iOS and Android™ devices. EV Charger is available in both hardwired and plug-in models that mount directly to a home’s garage wall.
The Ceiling Fan Switch, a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® enabled fan controller, reinvents the traditional ceiling fan by adding smart functionality through an elegantly designed wall switch and a canopy receiver — allowing users to control their fan’s speed and lighting with a simple voice command to Siri®, Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant. The Ceiling Fan Switch works with most ceiling fans, features three speeds, and energy monitoring from anywhere with the iDevices Connected app. It was developed with Progress Lighting™, another leading brand in the Hubbell Incorporated portfolio.
Installation is simple and seamless — Ceiling Fan Switch fits in a traditional gang box and works with any standard rocker faceplate. The Ceiling Fan Switch operates on a hub-free system and works with iOS and Android devices.
“Hubbell chose to acquire iDevices because they are known for developing quality, reliable IoT products that blend seamlessly into a consumer’s life,” said Jim Van Hoof, VP of Growth & Innovation at Hubbell. “Progress Lighting is known for stylish fans and lighting fixtures with stellar performance, while Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems pushes the industry boundaries of electric vehicle charging stations. These new products represent Hubbell’s commitment to technological excellence and they are the result of effectively leveraging the innovational synergies that exist across our brands. This type of end-user focused collaboration is what will drive the next phase of the smart home evolution for homeowners and homebuilders alike.”
The EV Charger and Smart Fan Control will be available in 2018.
