Project Summary

Smarthus smart home system (www.smarthus.cc) is a project under our new found hardware startup- Maketronics PLT. Smarthus smart home system is an idea that we initiated during the D-CODE Bootcamp organised by StartupMalaysia.org and we are honoured to be selected as one the TOP 5 project and was recently featured in YAHOO News (http://goo.gl/cNkhLV).

Project Smarthus is an initiative to make any home a "smart home" because we believe a good lifestyle should be embraced by a larger mass of people. So a smart home system by Smarthus for every one will have the core value of being affordable, easy to use and simple to implement.

Moving forward from the bootcamp, we further enhanced the smart home system and we are now looking for funding and therefore we've decided to crowd fund this project here in pitchIN.

Smarthus T8 Controller and C6 Wireless Switch pair allows allows people to have control over their home appliances by switching it on and off remotely so now it will be easier to switch off any unused appliances such as a fan or TV or lighting's and in turn, save precious energy.

Both the controller and wireless switch communicates through 2.4Gz RF frequency and has a long effective range to ensure maximum control area.

App Feature:


TIMER: allows you to set time to switch the appliances off


REMOTE ON/OFF: remotely switch it off from whereever around the house

How You Can Help:

Here's how you can help. You may do so by pitching in in order for us to achieve mass production and that will help us to kick start the first production of Smarthus Smart Home system and this is also a good way to proof a market and get the needed funding to be reinvested into the development. With that, we shall create more awesome smart home devices for everyone.

FAQ:

Do I need WiFi for this to work?
No. The T8 Controller controller communicates with other wireless switches through ZigBee RF communication protocol.

What OS is supported?
The system works as an app in the Chrome Browser. OS such as Windows / Ubuntu / MAC / Chrome OS are all supported.

Side Note:

A pitcher/pledger does not need a PayPal account to pitch or pledge. What he/she needs is a credit card (Mastercard/Visa) or a debit card.

However, if you are not comfortable doing an online pitch/pledge - you can transfer the money directly to the pitchIN account as follows:

WATCHTOWER AND FRIENDS SDN.BHD
Maybank 564892100684

WATCHTOWER AND FRIENDS SDN BHD is the company that owns and runs pitchIN.

However, the person must send pitchIN the proof of transfer by attaching the receipt to the email address: [email protected] with the Subject Heading: Smarthus. Upon receiving that, the folks at pitchIN can then quickly update the project page.

Thank you again and we do hope you will support the project!
