08/20/2019

Fox&Summit® today introduced the Wi-Fi® Pull Cord Sensor which allows friends and family to be notified whenever a loved one needs assistance at home.

Online PR News – 20-August-2019 – Los Angeles, CA – Fox&Summit®, A Simpler Smart Home Solution, today introduced a new smart device, the Wi-Fi® Pull Cord Sensor (FS-PCS200), that allows friends and family to be notified whenever a loved one needs assistance at home. The new smart sensor expands the company's growing range of security sensors, smart plugs, and smart lighting and builds upon its goal of a simpler, connected home experience for the consumer.

The Fox&Summit® Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor exhibits a design that allows a utilitarian product to be aesthetically pleasing in any room. Subtle design details include a new button for easier pairing and an LED indicator light that lets consumers visually know the connection status of the sensor.

Inspired by the everyday needs of people, the smart sensor gives customers peace of mind whenever help is needed at home by sending push notifications to family members with FS Home account access. There is also a built-in chime for local audible alarms. As soon as the included cord is pulled, the audible alert lets anyone in the home know help is requested.

Each newly purchased Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor includes batteries and a mounting adhesive strip for easy and flexible installation. Stick it to a wall by the bathtub or shower, near a set of stairs, or bedside in a bedroom.

The Fox&Summit® Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor, like other Fox&Summit® products, leverages the power of existing 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® networks to create a hub-free ecosystem that offers consumers security, safety, and home automation. This simplifies installation with a wireless and wire-free set up and reduces cost to the consumer by eliminating the need to purchase an additional smart hub. With the free FS Home App and Cloud-based platform, consumers can easily configure, customize, and scale a connected home experience that fits their unique needs.

"We developed a device that is truly unique to the smart home market in the U.S.," says Vincent Reapor, CIPO/COO of Fox&Summit®. "In Europe, it is common for hotel guests to find these types of devices near the showers of accessible rooms. We thought, with the aging population and the growth of in-home health industry, there was an opportunity to introduce a smart sensor with the same functionality. Ultimately, the Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor offers people an affordable, hub-free device that assists in their ability to care for friends and family who may need some extra care."

The Fox&Summit® Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor is currently available to customers in the U.S. from Fox&Summit® for $29.49 and will soon be available through other authorized Fox&Summit® retail channels. Please visit Fox&Summit® for more products details on the Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor (FS-PCS200).

Every Fox&Summit® device works well independently. However, consumers may unlock the full potential of the Fox&Summit® Ecosystem when combining multiple devices and utilizing the powerful features found in the FS Home App. Users may create notifications, groups, scenes, and rules all within the App. For example, when the Wi-Fi Pull Cord Sensor is triggered it can activate the Fox&Summit® Wi-Fi LED Light Bulb or turn on a lamp connected to the Fox&Summit® Wi-Fi Indoor Plug to alert others nearby that aid is needed. It's easy to setup through the rules engine in the FS Home App.
