TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 11, 2018 / The new Atmos Smart Home Control system will offer a simple, seamless solution for managing multiple connected devices - including smart lights, climate control, cameras, security, appliances, and entertainment devices - while you're at home, at work, or traveling. With all the new home devices being announced at the Winter Consumer Electronics Show and those purchased for the holidays, Atmos has developed proprietary technology to link virtually all of them.
Atmos is now conducting an online public Title III equity crowdfunding offering (OPO) which is currently listed on the StartEngine website.
"Smart home technologies are intended to help us streamline and manage our homes and our lives," says Mark Lyle, Chief Technology Officer, and co-founder of Atmos. "However, most smart home devices don't speak the same language, so trying to set up, access, and control multiple devices, each of which respond to a different smartphone app or communication protocol can be frustrating, inconvenient, and time-consuming."
The new Atmos Smart Home Control is a fully-integrated smart home solution offering both touchscreen and voice activation to seamlessly connect and control all connected home devices at a fraction of the cost of expensive custom smart home installations. The secure, easy-to-use system, will be available for pre-order in early 2018 for $249.00 MSRP. The company recently launched an Online Public Offering (OPO) on the StartEngine equity crowdfunding platform to fund the first stage of manufacturing.
Atmos was conceived from Lyle's frustration with his own smart home integration. Together with co-founder and Chief Design Officer Chris Ladwig, the engineering and design team re-envisioned the future smart home in which all connected devices will respond to commands utilizing a more integrated, intuitive system that is within reach of virtually every homeowner.
"Most smart home device makers promote smartphone control as cutting-edge and convenient," explains Lyle. "The truth is that unlocking your phone, waiting for your connected device apps to open, and trying to navigate all of this on a small screen, is an inconvenient way to control the lights or adjust the temperature."
The Atmos Smart Home Control system makes it simple to use voice activation, the high-definition touchscreen interface, or the Atmos smartphone app to:
- Lock doors, dim lights, and lower window shades at bedtime with a single command
- Enjoy your favorite music with Sonos or any other Bluetooth connected speaker
- Get on-screen notifications when a sensor or security camera is triggered
- Start the coffee maker, preheat the oven, and turn on the TV with one touch when you wake up in the morning
- Utilize the built-in personal assistant to set reminders or order services such as Uber or Lyft
- Control all of your existing smart devices utilizing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, and infrared technologies
Analysts at The Gartner Group estimate that by 2020 there will be more than 26 billion interconnected devices known as the Internet of Things (IoT). According to McKinsey and Company, there are already 29 million homes in the U.S. with smart home devices, and project the smart home industry to grow at a 31 percent compound annual rate.
Atmos communicates and works with all of the major smart home communication standards, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Z-Wave, and infrared. It will be compatible with most major home automation brands, including Nest, Philips Hue, Belkin WeMo, Sonos, SmartThings, DirecTV, and many others. The full list is available at atmoshome.tech.
In addition to its voice and touchscreen-activated control system, Atmos is planning to manufacture and market several other ancillary products as part of its smart home product line:
Atmos Expand Smart Light Switch
The Atmos Expand Smart Light Switch will instantly add smart lighting control without needing to replace existing bulbs. While many smart lighting systems cease to operate when a Wi-Fi signal is not present, Atmos has developed a proprietary interface between the system and switch that is far more reliable.
Atmos Surround Smart Speaker
The Atmos Surround Smart Speaker is designed from the ground up to deliver premium audio performance and to be the perfect complement to the Atmos Smart Home Control System. It is deeply integrated with the Atmos Smart Home Control System allowing the use of voice commands to control lights, moderate climate, start your favorite playlist, or access many of your connected devices hands-free.
