Have you ever left home in a rush, and you can’t quite remember whether or not you turned off the lights or curling iron? We sure have, and we know it immediately leads to that dreaded “Oh crap” moment. Wouldn’t it be great if we could check whether we left these items on or not without rushing back home? Soon, that will be a reality.
Newbeem has created a power outlet that you can control through your smart phone. It’s a timer, dimmer and surge protector all in one. It works through a wifi connection that allows you to control your devices from anywhere in the world. The Smart Outlet can control up to 255 outlets at a time. How smart is that?
Say you’re REALLY good at making sure everything is off before you leave home, but you’re not big on walking into a dark house. You can turn your lights on to welcome you home before you pull into the driveway. Or say you’re having a gorgeous suitor over for dinner and things start getting a little romantic. No need to walk over to your dimmer switch and adjust the lighting. You can do that from Newbeem’s app that will be installed at your within-reach phone.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on this gadget (we sure as heck are!), you better move fast! Their Kickstarter ends in less than a week. With a $25 pledge, you’ll be the proud owner of a Newbeem.
