This month Droplit founder Bryan Jenks has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for a new, so-called “easy-to- use” (haven’t we heard that before?) smart home system that allows users to integrate and control all of their smart devices from the Droplit Cue remote or the Droplit smartphone app.
Droplit is unique in that it not only provides a single button (think Apple) to turn an entire room on and off, but also has the capability of setting “scenes” which allow users to switch on several devices to a predefined state all at once. For example, a user can set a scene so that when they walk through their front door, the lights turn on, the air conditioning starts up and their favorite song starts playing while they prepare for dinner.
Droplit is compatible with existing smart devices on the market, like Phillips Hue Smart Bulbs, LIFX Smart Bulbs, SONOS Smart Speakers, Belkin WeMo and more. The company aims to continue to expand on its device compatibility as new smart devices are introduced to the market.
Jenks has set the project’s funding goal to $50,000. Once the campaign raises the $50,000 needed to cover the first round of manufacturing, he will be able to bring the product to market for the masses. Some of the first campaign backers will receive the complete Droplit Home System, including the customizable Droplit Cue remote, for $139 or the Droplit device, for in-home or off-site control via smartphone app, for just $89.
Droplit will be running its Kickstarter campaign for the next 30 days. To learn more or to pre-order the device today, visit the project’s Kickstarter campaign page here.
