New York, NY (January 2017) – Today, the smart home market just got a new player. It's Merkury Innovations, a designer of personal electronics and accessories. They announced today the launch of a new line of smart home products called Geeni.
The new Geeni line includes a range of smart bulbs, cameras, and power solutions. But what makes Geeni different from all the rest of the new smart home products is the fact their products can be controlled via one unified Geeni app. This allows for a convenient and seamless smart home experience. The cloud-based app combines the simplicity of an on/off switch with premium features such as grouping, smart scenes, and robust sharing features.
Geeni bulbs and plugs will also be Alexa compatible, allowing voice control using Amazon Echo, with additional integrations forthcoming. GearBrain is a big believer in using voice to simplify the building of your smart home. Having no complicated hubs or gateways required to use Geeni is a good idea; each Geeni device is smart enough to connect directly to your home Wi-Fi network.
Geeni products will be available in Q1 of 2017. Here is a brief description on each one:
With Geeni, your lighting can be controlled from anywhere, set to turn on/off on a schedule, and controlled in groups for maximum customization. Unlike other smart bulbs on the market, the Geeni bulbs are shaped like conventional lightbulbs so that light comes out of a larger surface area, resulting in light that is more evenly distributed and bright enough to replace traditional household lights.
