Tudia Cous: Connectivity for the elderly

September 14, 2016

Wirelessly connect to plugs 100 feet away

The IoT revolution holds many promises, among them energy efficiency, ease of use and cost economy. For the elderly, however, the aspect of opening a smartphone, finding an app and changing the brightness of the bulbs or shutting off the TV may not be all too practical. Which is why we love Tudia’s Cous wireless remote control electrical outlet.

The promise here is an inexpensive way to control all your lights, household appliances, and power strips without the need for complicated IoT smartphone devices. TUDIA Cous turns on and off lights and appliances, wirelessly communicating to its outlet plugs from as far as 100 feet — even through closed doors, floors, and walls.

Simply plug in one of the 5 small outlet plugs into a regular wall outlet to turn appliances and lights on and off with the included 2 pre-programmed remote controls. Each remote can control up to 5 devices. The savings on your energy bill apart, you also extend the life of your lights and appliances.

The Tudia Cous wireless remote control electrical outlet is priced at $34.74, and includes 5 Cous outlet receivers and 2 Remote Control transmitters.
