Simplify the Connected Home with the NUZii Smart Hub
Control all of your connected devices from one small hub and user-friendly dashboard
SACRAMENTO, Calif. November 19, 2014- Launching today on Kickstarter is the worlds first smart-life hub. NUZii merges features from multiple devices into one, easy-to-use smart device. The 4 tall gadget functions as a cloud storage device, a smart home hub, an audio streamer, a home security system, and a router that protects you online. NUZii even has a self-learning feature which can be used to control home temperature, start a coffee maker in the morning, play the users favorite music, and many other commands.
Weve seen an influx of connected devices that all do amazing things, but they all function independently, said Simon Watfa, Creator of NUZii. Weve created a product that will harness the power of these smart devices and allow users to control them from one central location.
Smart Home Hub: NUZii is the worlds smallest smart home hub. Supporting a lot of the existing appliances in the market, the possibilities are endless. Using NUZiis proprietary app or the desktop interface, users can control any connected home device: change the temperature, turn on music, dim lights and more.
Home Security: The built-in webcam allows NUZii to monitor a home at all times. Using motion detection technology, NUZii is able to detect movement inside a home, even if the user is not there. If movement is noticed, a live feed will pop up on the users smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
Wireless Music: NUZii is also a compact streaming device. Connect the NUZii to any speaker system and enjoy wireless streaming of your songs from any device.
Cloud Sharing: Share and backup important files or folders by connecting a USB stick to the NUZii. The files will be securely accessible online through your own private cloud. DLNA support creates the ability to stream media to the TV. NUZii also has an integrated download manager, so users can schedule and download any file from the internet.
Internet Security: Connecting the NUZii to broadband using the Ethernet port will create a secure Wi-Fi network. NUZii is the worlds first portable ad blocking and malware prevention device. It also supports TOR which allows you to be anonymous and hide your exposure online for ultimate privacy.
A proprietary mobile app and desktop application will function as the command center from which users can manage their NUZii as well as download additional features from the NUZii app store. NUZii will open the SDK to developers, allowing them to create their own apps for NUZii.
Early bird pledges start at $75 and the expected retail price is $130. Check out a video about NUZii here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/533345441/the-worlds-first-smart-life-platform
