Home automation is becoming increasingly popular, affordable and simple. Smart devices – thermostats, for instance – are great but they still need power.
A common solution is to use a battery. Efficient devices such as smoke detectors need new batteries only every few years. Yet other devices – wireless security cameras, smart remotes – require frequent battery replacements. As a result, device manufacturers limit the functionality of these devices to conserve power.
Is there a better way?
Wi-Charge provides a unique solution for remote power delivery to smart home wireless devices. We eliminate battery replacement and support 24/7 operation with increased functionality.
The Wi-Charge wireless power transmitter plugs into a wall outlet. Or, it is installed as a lighting fixture. This transmitter uses safe invisible light to deliver power to a smart home device. Each device has an embedded Wi-Charge power receiver.
Battery changes are a thing of the past. User experience improves. Smart home device installations are simpler.
A Smart Door Lock
A smart door lock powered without wires or batteries can be smarter. It might have a video camera, or face and fingerprint recognition. It could communicate with the cloud and help owners open their door remotely.

A Wireless Security Camera
Without power wires, the camera can now be located anywhere. No longer do you have to be close to a power outlet or worry about frequent battery changes.
