Company description

Powerscape believes the market for home automation is congested with expensive and complicated solutions that prevent the average mobile device user from using such technology. Powerscape provides an outlet module to control power in your home or office. Our outlet module is a simple plug--‐in device-that harnesses the capability of WiFi technology-which allows you to turn on and off any electrical appliance in your home or office. Our versatile web and iPhone interfaces allow you to access this functionality from any web--‐enabled device, anywhere in the world. Powerscape products target technologically inclined customers, specifically those who have smart phones and other web--‐enabled mobile devices. Our products are ready--‐to--‐use, off--‐the--‐shelf, and are easy to setup without any advanced technical knowledge. The company provides the modules at a price point of $30

each. Our customers can use the modules in their home or office to save time and energy, by preventing unused appliances from using any electricity. Most importantly, our modules will reduce the risk of electrical hazards. Powerscape modules will be available from retail stores such as Lowe's and Best Buy, and online retailers such as Amazon and our own Powerscape store.

Our prototype demonstrates the feasibility of our business model and our product. The prototype provides all the functionality that is expected in our retail Powerscape module including managing power, creating power profiles, and managing multiple devices. Home automation is an emerging market that is expected to reach a $3 billion market cap by 2012, up from an estimated $370 million in 2000.
