Minigames and what’s next
01.00_DB_Minigames+WhatsNext_Blog-Cover.jpg

Since September, VeSync has been releasing monthly events and in-app promotions through the Discover tab in the app, a place for blog posts, sales, and monthly events. In February, VeSync released an in-app game where users can tend to a virtual garden and earn real life rewards. This game is planned to be a permanent part of the app.

If you haven’t tried the game out yet, it’s surprisingly simple. Claim a daily supply of water and use it to water your garden. That’s it. Once the trees in your garden grow, they will regularly bear fruit. Fruit can be traded for real life rewards, like coupons. The current prizes listed are 25%-30% discounts on smart light switches and outlets, redeemable for a small price of 2-3 fruits.

The game’s goal is to reward the community, especially users who use the app frequently. With just a few seconds a day, players get access to sizeable discounts on VeSync products. The game also highlights environmental awareness, one of VeSync's main goals as a lifestyle brand.

 

The combination of VeSync’s growing library of smart devices with their new in-app game makes them a unique service. Apps with both primary functions and additional ones, like minigames or social features, are rare but not unheard of. Perhaps the biggest is WeChat, China’s most popular social media app with over 1 billion monthly active users.

 

According to Business Insider, WeChat lets users instant message and video conference each other, play in-app games together—even pay bills and schedule doctor appointments. It’s become so successful, its users in China know it as “an app for everything”.

 

The closest thing the United States currently has to WeChat is Facebook. Facebook has an API (Application Programming Interface) that lets users sign up for most other apps with just their Facebook account. Facebook owns WhatsApp, Instagram, and Oculus Rift, and they recently launched Facebook Marketplace, a digital space to buy and sell belongings.

Amazon, another big name, has its own ambitious goals. With a strong foundation in online retail, Amazon has gone on to video-streaming services, grocery delivery, and even game-streaming with Twitch. Their plan to constantly expand into multiple services will likely continue.

 

While VeSync isn't trying to become Facebook, Amazon, or even WeChat’s “app for everything”, they have become a leader in smart home solutions. Their new in-app game further sets them apart from competitors. Maybe someday, they’ll be known as the app that has a device for everything.

discover-vday_cover750x320-01.jpg

Valentine’s Day is almost here. And while VeSync can’t exactly give you the love Valentine’s Day is known for, we can definitely provide the gifts to show it.

Here are 2 things we think your special someone will swoon for this holiday.

LV-PUR131S.jpg

131S 

There are two things we can’t live without in this world: air and WiFi. Levoit’s smart air purifier manages to combine both.

The 131S brings all the functionality of Levoit’s classic air purifier right to your fingertips. Enjoy an ultra-fine filtration system and real-time air quality updates on your smartphone. It’s simple and it’s easy.

Set schedules to automatically turn your air purifier on or off at any time of day. Change your purifier’s fan speed with the tap of a widget on your home screen.

If your significant other lives in a polluted city, if they do a lot of cooking, or if they have a furry friend, this air purifier works to eliminate pet dander, smells, and allergens instantly.

Cosori Air Fryer

While the air purifier and air fryer both have “air” in their name, they serve two very different functions.

The first eliminates pollutants. The second uses air—not fatty oil—to cook your favorite fried foods.


Prepare fried dishes with 85% less fat than traditional fryers. Your favorite comfort food is now as tasty as it is healthy.

The Cosori Air Fryer also cooks food much faster than a conventional oven. It can heat to 300°F in under 8 minutes—much faster than an oven. And after it’s heated, a steak filet takes just 6 minutes to cook, juiciness included.

Preheat the air fryer before cooking to improve texture and taste. The helpful Shake Reminder lets you know when it’s time to shake the baskets. Even better, the detachable basket has a non-stick surface, guaranteeing hassle-free cleanup.

Along with all the fryer’s bells and whistles, Cosori offers a free 100-recipe cookbook. You don’t have to be the next Iron Chef to make something truly tasty.

If time spent with your special someone means eating great food, this air fryer is the perfect way to say, “I love food, too.”

New Year, New Releases
discover-newyear_cover750x320-01.jpg

It’s a new year, and that means more VeSync products! Allow us to introduce you to a couple new stars coming early 2019.

131S Air Purifier

The 131S is the first air purifier to join the VeSync family. It’s made by Levoit, a leader in clean air. They focus on treating microscopic pollutants and allergens as small as .3 microns.

The 131S is the smart version of the 131 Air Purifier, one of Levoit’s all-time, best-selling products.

This air purifier is equipped with 3 different filters: a pre-filter, a true HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter. They work together to eliminate 99.97% of airborne bacteria and pollutants. On top of being highly effective, the 131S is also smart, meaning you can control it anywhere you have an Internet connection.

The 131S constantly monitors your air quality, giving you real-time updates through the VeSync app. VeSync also tracks your filter life, telling you exactly how much life is left in your three filters. You’ll get reminders whenever your filters need to be changed. You can also set your air purifier to Auto Mode, where the 131S will automatically detect air quality and adjust the fan speed accordingly.

On top of staying in the know, the 131S lets you create schedules and timers, giving you a completely hands-off approach to clean air. If you want your air purifier to run while you sleep, set a daily schedule for 10 PM-6 AM. Your air purifier will automatically turn off in the morning. If you want your kitchen to smell fresh after cooking, just set a timer for an hour. Bad cooking smells be gone!

Stay tuned for more news about when the 131S Air Purifier will launch. 

ESF37 Smart Fitness Scale

The ESF37 is a comprehensive body fat scale that uses bioimpedance, a measurement of how well your body resists electrical currents, to provide 12 essential body measurements. With one weigh-in, you can measure a whole lot: Weight, Body Fat, Body Water, Muscle Mass, Bone Mass, Protein, BMR, Metabolic Age, Visceral Fat, Subcutaneous Fat, Fat-Free Body Weight, and BMI.

Some of these are measurements are probably things you’ve never heard of, but all of them can be really useful. For example, your BMR (basal metabolic rate) is how many calories your body burns a day at rest. Knowing your BMR is critical for losing weight, since you’ll have to burn more calories than you consume.

Along with a wide variety of metrics, the ESF37 can track your progress. VeSync compiles and plots your measurements over weeks, months, and years. With one glance, you’ll be able to see all your results. 

You can share your progress with friends, family, trainers, or gym buddies. Each scale can support up to 8 users, and you can share with unlimited friends. Anyone who’s worked at getting healthy knows that lasting results come from a lifestyle change, rather than a momentary one. Accountability is crucial! Plus, everything’s more fun with a friend.

Both the 131S Air Purifier and the ESF37 Smart Fitness Scale are coming out in the next few months. Keep an eye out!

Getting Smarter Smart Plugs, Part 2
VD-Blog3-Preview.jpg

You’ve mastered the three Voltson Smart Outlet tips from our previous blog, right? Either way, here’s our four fresh tips.

Listen up, Google Assistant and Alexa!

You may already know that you can ask Alexa the current weather, or quiz Google on the mass of Mars and Venus. Voice Control, a VeSync feature, also lets you “command your plugs” by speaking your wishes to Alexa or Google Assistant.

Imagine you’re a mom who has cleverly plugged every TV in the house into a Voltson outlet. With profound foresight, you then grouped them together in your app and named that group All Televisions. Both efficient and punctual, you now routinely tell Alexa every evening at 9:30pm, “Alexa, turn off All Televisions.” Nicely done, Mom. You won’t even have to say it twice.

Even sharing can be smart

The Share Function allows you to share control of a Voltson outlet with others (but only if you want to). After you share, they can manage that shared outlet from the VeSync app on their phones. Think of it as tag-teaming household management.

Saved from the surge

Navigating in darkness to the breaker box after a severe thunderstorm or power surge is bad enough. Even worse? Discovering that home appliances have also gone kaput.

As a power surge comes through, the Voltson outlet’s Abnormal Energy Protection feature prevents the power spike from blowing out your appliance. Be at peace knowing your favorite nightlight, heirloom toaster, or guppy aquarium setup is powerfully safeguarded.

Just add widgets

The Widget Feature places a widget (i.e., a little interactive window) on your phone’s home screen where you can view several of your smart outlets at once. From there, you get immediate access to those plugs without even opening the app.

So tap away. As you pick up more of these quick tips, your smart plugs will keep getting smarter.
