ConnectSense Partners with Wayne Water Systems to Integrate its IoT 80/20™ Technology in its Premium Connected Basement Protection Systems

Bringing best-in-class smart products to market quicker and more affordable than ever with its complete, in-house IoT solution, ConnectSense has collaborated with Wayne Water Systems to take basement protection to a new level

NAPERVILLE, IL -- February 8, 2018 -- ConnectSense, a leader in smart home connectivity, has partnered with Wayne Water Systems, creators of worry free residential water management solutions, on its first premium digitally connected basement protection sump system.

The Basement Guardian, powered by ConnectSense’s IoT 80/20™ platform, is a premium, Wi-Fi connected, total basement protection system featuring two full size, all cast iron pumps. The new efficient backup pump can drain 11,000 gallons of water on a single charge. The Basement Guardian has been billed as the Hardest Working Pump You’ll Never Hear™ due to its silent build. When a home loses power, the Local Link™ technology allows the homeowner to monitor their basement on their iOS or Android app from wherever they are.

The team at ConnectSense, with more than five years of Internet of Things (IoT) experience, leveraged their IoT 80/20 cloud platform built on industry-leading technology for scalability, reliability, and cost efficiency.  Additionally, ConnectSense lead development efforts for the full firmware, hardware, web app, as well as the iOS and Android mobile apps.

To-date, ConnectSense has collaborated with several large home brands to make traditional household items smart. Some additional recent partners include one of the world's largest manufacturers of plumbing supplies, Moen, and premium lock manufacturer Schlage.

"Our team works great with companies like Wayne, who are passionate for their work and the customers they serve. The ConnectSense team is able to get their product connected and to market quickly and affordably, while staying competitive in their marketplace," said Adam Justice, CEO of ConnectSense. "This allows them to focus on what they do best, building reliable, industry-leading pumps that help keep homes dry."

"We didn’t want to bring the Basement Guardian to market without leveraging a partnership with ConnectSense," said Donald Williams, VP of Engineering at Wayne Water Systems. "They have an impressive reputation for producing seamless customer experiences and monitoring capabilities that are essential for the at-home sump pump system. We are confident they are the best partner to offer the IoT development our team needed."

ConnectSense Introduces Power Monitoring to Smart Outlet

Smart Outlet Price Dropped to $59.95

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — (October 20, 2016) — ConnectSense, a developer and manufacturer of home automation products, announced the addition of power monitoring to its ConnectSense Smart Outlet and the ConnectSense app.

With the ConnectSense app, users can easily create integrated scenes and rules for the Smart Outlet and other home automation devices regardless of manufacturer, with just a few simple steps. Users can control their smart devices with the touch of a button or using Siri voice control.

With detailed power monitoring, users have insight into the power consumption of devices plugged into the Smart Outlet, as well as how long devices have been turned on. This allows users to adopt more energy efficient habits or to replace energy-hogging devices or appliances with more efficient choices.

Unique to the ConnectSense app is the ability to create rules based on power usage. For example, a homeowner can set a rule that says if the television has been on for three hours, turn it off. Also, for safety, rules can be set to turn off hot or potentially dangerous devices, such as flat irons, if they have been left on for an extended period of time.

More complex scenarios also can be set up to automate environments. For example, in a home theater, a homeowner can set a rule that says when the projector turns on, the room lights dim.

“We are happy to provide our customers a way to monitor their energy usage, and give them more control over their devices,” said Adam Justice, founder of ConnectSense. “Among the reasons to automate a home is to make it more energy efficient and to save money, and power monitoring will be an important tool in this effort.”

The ConnectSense power monitoring feature is available via firmware update free to existing customers in the current ConnectSense app.

ConnectSense also announced it is dropping the price of its ConnectSense Smart Outlet to $59.95. The Smart Outlet features two Internet-connected electrical sockets that enable users to control devices plugged into them using Siri via their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple Watch. 

About ConnectSense
ConnectSense develops and manufactures home automation products, including the ConnectsSense Smart Outlet and a line of wireless sensors that monitor changes in your environment then notifies you by email or text when something goes awry. ConnectSense can be found at www.connectsense.com and on Twitter at @ConnectSense.

Review: ConnectSense Smart Outlet featuring Apple HomeKit support

It’s been a little more than six months since the first batch of HomeKit-enabled products landed during the summer, and smart home fans are finally able to take advantage of a number of different devices compatible with an iPhone or iPad.

But there’s a new contender that doubles the fun, literally. The ConnectSense Smart Outlet landed today for $79.99 and features two outlets that can each be controlled separately. If you’ve been thinking about jumping on the smart home bandwagon, you definitely can’t go wrong with the ConnectSense Smart Outlet – especially if you’re needing to control two different devices located near each other. It’s definitely recommended.
