fast facts

Inovelli is a home automation company looking to redefine what’s possible in the smart home market through products that utilize breakthrough Z-Wave Plus™ technology.

Our switches, sensors, and other DIY devices give consumers far more functional capabilities than traditional WiFi-powered options, and are also more secure, more powerful, and can have a stronger signal throughout the house.

the smart home disconnect

In efforts to get in on the smart home rage, most consumers are turning to WiFi for its familiarity, low cost of entry, and full compatibility with Amazon Alexa & Google Home.

But in reality, what WiFi brings us is more of a connected home than a smart home.  Sure, it allows us to connect smartphones with things like lights & speakers for remote control - but provides little functionality beyond that.  

Other major WiFi shortcomings include:

There is hope, however, with Z-Wave: a technology designed specifically to deliver true smart functionality. Z-Wave allows your house to anticipate your actions and adapts accordingly, making it customizable to each individual home.

On top of this flexibility, Z-Wave runs on a separate band from WiFi and therefore causes no household disruptions.  But unfortunately, it remains out of reach from far too many as people just don’t know what it is.

ride the wave

Consumers are anxiously waiting for a new player to step up and save them from the corporate Wi-Fi giants.  That time is now here thanks to Inovelli.

At Inovelli, we manufacture top quality products designed specifically for home automation - including switches, plugs, outlets, and sensors - that give consumers full DIY control.

But we’re far from your traditional smart home company.  In the same way that smartphones progressed from flip phones, we’ve captured the next generation of Z-Wave technology - called Z-Wave Plus™ - to turn any domicile into a true smart home.”

The Z-Wave Plus devices we offer are more secure than basic WiFi IoT devices, provide greater user customization, and also:

Our products allow for remote control of two devices on two separate outlets from one module, and from anywhere in the world.  It’s time to make life simpler!

All of our hardware products are backed by proprietary firmware that serves as our primary differentiator.  Z-Wave is the most advanced & modular of the smart home industries 4 main protocols - Bluetooth, ZigBee, and WiFi.

This versatility gives consumers far more flexibility than traditional options do, working with Google Home, Alexa, & other hubs.  Therefore, multiple tasks can be accomplished with a single protocol (the tap of a button, the plugging in of your phone, etc.).

Take this example: you walk into your bedroom at night, dead tired, not having the energy to “shut down” the house.  Our products allow you to run a “go to bed protocol” - which checks that doors are locked, lights are off, and more right from the tap of a button (no need to whip out a phone to check what’s on/off, etc).

Here’s a little more on our 4 current primary product lines:

Z-Wave switches - Manually and remote controlled on/off, dimming, and on/off toggle light switches with built-in Z-Wave repeaters & ability to control your entire house at the touch of a button.

Z-Wave indoor plugs - 1 and 2-channel on/off and 1-channel dimming plugs available; offer scene control and can remember the last state after a power outage

Outdoor plugs - 1 and 2-channel on/off plugs built to withstand elements while automating your outdoor lights; manual & remote control with last state ability

Z-Wave sensors - Door/temperature sensors that detect open/close & temperature and have 2-year battery life; can manually change temperature reporting time

We’re also currently in the process of developing our own proprietary hardware as well - so there will truly be nothing like Inovelli products in the market.  Additional features and benefits we provide include:

  • The potential to trigger events of over 1,700 devices
  • Many products are UL Listed, Z-Wave Plus Certified, and FCC Certified
  • Can change light on/off speed and dim levels based on time of day
  • IP65-rated outdoor capability with ability to operate at temperatures of -4F to 120F
  • Step-by-step written & video tutorials provided

key accomplishments

We’ve been on the market for less than 2 years, but have already achieved quite a bit:

Also signed with China’s largest IoT manufacturer, who makes products for Ring and will handle both our hardware & firmware; distribution/logistics in place via Amazon too.

Consistently praised as having the best customer service in the industry and are always getting outstanding feedback on platforms like Reddit.
