  • Solar powered and rechargeable

Add a bit of light, life and character to your garden with these Solar Powered Garden Pals! The Solar Snails Garden Pals (Pair) from Smart Solar is a fun way to add decorative lighting and a whimsical touch to your garden, patio, flower beds, or porch steps without increasing the electricity bill. With their googly eyes and smiling faces, the Solar Snails Garden Pals turn outdoor lighting into a fun experience perfect for anywhere you need a burst of light in the evening. The snails are powered by an integrated solar panel that uses the sun’s energy to recharge the internal and replaceable Ni-Mh batteries so the snails can function electricity-free with no operating costs. After harnessing and storing the sun’s energy with a built-in photocell sensor, the snails will automatically turn on in low light situations and turn off automatically when there is ample light. The lights require no scheduling or programming, but it is important to make sure each light is placed in a location where it will receive the maximum amount of sunlight each day. Install these decorative solar lights in areas outside your home and watch it draw the eyes of neighbors and passersby alike. Read More

  • Monitor the energy usage of a connected device
  • Program schedules, rules and even receive alert notifications
  • Quick setup – plug into AC outlet then connect electronic device
  • WeMo app is compatible with iOS and Android operating systems

Did you forget to turn off the coffee machine? Wonder no more and see which electronic devices you left on or off directly from your smartphone or tablet with the help of the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch! With the WeMo app, you can turn your devices on and off as you please while also monitoring the energy consumption of each device!

Grow your existing WeMo network or get started on a brand new one with the F7C029FC WeMo Insight Switch from Belkin. This plug-and-play device gives you the ability to remotely turn any connected electronic device On or Off from the convenience of the Belkin WeMo app on an Android or iOS smart device. Simply plug the Insight Switch into an AC outlet and then connect the electronic device you wish to control by plugging it into the AC pass-through outlet on the Insight Switch and you’re ready to go. Through the WeMo app you can now create custom schedules and rules for the electronic device while also setting up email alerts to notify you if the connected device has been on for too long.

On/Off control is great but that’s not all the Insight Switch can do. This device will also do exactly what its name suggests; it provides insight into the energy usage of the electronic device. Monitor the devices used most often in your home, or perceived to be the largest energy guzzlers to find out how much each is truly costing you and see where money can be saved by reducing usage of certain devices.

CastleOS will improve your comfort, safety, and stress levels in day-to-day household activities with the CastleOS Home Automation Software which offers an incredibly detailed and sophisticated home automation experience. CastleOS uses a unique dual device control system that accepts simple voice commands through a Kinect device, or commands through the CastleOS web and mobile application on any Internet accessible iOS and Android smart device (smartphone/tablet), or computer anywhere in the world. Commands to your home are relayed from the Kinect or web and mobile application to your Windows XP computer which can communicate with an unlimited number of interconnected home automation devices such as INSTEON, Z-Wave, UPB, X10, or WeMo via a plugged in INSTEON PLM or USB adapter. CastleOS doesn’t just listen to you, but will also communicate with you using sound confirmation notices and verbal responses to questions and commands.

The Kinect gives your complete control over your home with an accurate and sophisticated whole-house natural language voice recognition system that monitors your home and listens for command prompts 24/7 without relaying interferences from loud music, movies, TV, and other noises. There is no limit to the amount of Kinect devices that can be connected to your home system, but additional Kinects increase the standard 35-foot transmission range. You can control your home from the web and mobile application if you do not have a Kinect device which is very easy to use and lets you save money and energy through intelligent programming, and remote or automated device control for sophisticated device scheduling, event triggering, device grouping, energy expenditure monitoring, climate control, and system security. The web and mobile application also provides smart read-outs for each individual interconnected device showing real-time information about which group the device is a part of, how much energy and money is used, and projected costs from the device.

Save money on energy costs and add some more natural light to any room by adding a skylight! There is something relaxing about a room filled with natural light that electric lighting just can’t duplicate. With a Skylight Tube from US Sunlight Solar natural light can be captured from the roof and tunneled in to just about any room in a home. Adding natural light to rooms of your home will help cut down on the dependency of electric lighting and thus help you save money on electric bills. The Skylight Tube installs on the roof of a home without having to make major structural changes or do any reframing. The flexible tubing that tunnels light from the roof lens to the desired household room can be extended to as much as 8 feet. When expanded 2 feet from the roof, the flexible tubing will provide enough natural light for a room 175sq/ft and when extended to 8 feet it will light a 100sq/ft room or area. Users will not have to worry about the dual layer polycarbonate roof lens breaking in inclement weather as it is 250 times stronger than its acrylic counterparts. The ENERGY STARĀ® Skylight Tube uses a 3-lens configuration that blocks out heat and cold while still providing all of the natural lighting benefits. US Sunlight Solar estimates that installation of the Skylight Tube on an asphalt shingle roof should take about 2 hours for a professional or about one afternoon for a DIY’er. It is recommended that the Skylight Tube be installed on asphalt shingle roofs. Save $170 right now on this US Sunlight Solar Chroma Skylight Tube! Read More
