This week, Zuli announced a milestone partnership with Logitech, bringing the reality of a truly smart and intuitive home to the masses a huge step forward.
Zuli’s smartplugs are now integrated into the Logitech Harmony Living Home products. What this means is that you will be able to simply walk through your home and the connected devices and appliances will respond to your presence and your preferences. The TV will turn on and tune into ESPN while the lights come up and the heating comes on. If you move from the living room to the kitchen, the TV programming will pause as the lights go on and the coffee pot begins to percolate. It sounds futuristic and magical, but it’s possible today with Zuli and Logitech’s family of connected partners.
Mark de la Vina and I attended the Logitech announcement event this week along with Zuli co-founders Taylor Umphreys and Sid Bhargava (in the photo at the top). In attendance were members of the press, Logitech partners, and executives. The event took place in the penthouse of The Battery, a swanky seen-and-be-seen private club in the heart of San Francisco and afforded us some spectacular views and the sun went down (Mark and I are showing the way to the TransAmerica Pyramid).
Don’t forget to pre-order your Zuli Smartplug now, for delivery in early 2015.
