The iKEON range of smart power outlets and light switches designed by Design + Industry have received a 2019 iF Design Award in the Product Design category. The iKEON range is packed with technology - from sensors that can monitor temperature, humidity and power consumption through to Siri voice control and Apple HomeKit compatibility.
iKEON enclosures are constructed from scratch resistant and fireproof plastic, with a unique combination of gloss finish on the sides and matte finish on the fascia. Despite the confined space, the D+I team were able to engineer the electronics and sensors to fit inside the enclosure - the first time this has been achieved in a consumer power outlet or light switch.
Every iKEON power outlet features a safety lock (to prevent devices from being accidentally switched off) and a programmable timer - indicator lights on the fascia clearly indicate the lock and timer status. 'Smart Active Technology' prevents the power outlet from turning on without a plug inserted.
The LED illumination employed in the iKEON power outlets and light switches can be customised with a virtually unlimited range of colours. A proximity sensor allows any device to sense your presence and increase brightness to 100%, making the buttons easier to see in the dark. iKEON even has a unique 'Night Light' mode that can illuminate hallways and rooms - providing a safer home or office environment.
