A third of Brits choose LED lights to save energy: new research from reichelt elektroniks

britsLED lights have become a viable option for UK households wanting to make energy and cost savings, reveals a new survey by reichelt elektronik. Lasting significantly longer than conventional lamps, a third of respondents say energy savings are the biggest influencer when it comes to buying an LED light but upfront costs remain a barrier to purchasing.

Spotlight on efficiency and design

The survey revealed that the benefit of these energy savings is of greater concern than luminosity (21 per cent) and colour (9 per cent).

The findings also show that energy efficiency is the most important factor for a quarter of Brits when buying any lamp, as consumers seek the long-term cost savings on offer versus conventional bulbs. Efficiency is of particular concern to over 35s, with 37% of over 55s saying it influences their choice of lighting. Design with a wide range of lighting options (23 per cent) is the second most important factor for Brits.

Price only ranked the third most important purchasing factor overall. This shows consumers are becoming more concerned with qualitative aspects such as energy savings and design when choosing lamps. Consumer needs have shifted as they look for ways to become as energy efficient as possible instead of being primarily influenced by upfront pricing.

UK households making the switch

73 per cent of UK consumers are already reaping the benefits of using LED lamps in their home, with 17 per cent of respondents having already switched to LED lights completely.  Over a quarter of Brits (28 percent) already use LED lighting in more than half of their household and 29 percent have converted a few lamps (less than half) to LEDs. However, costs are still cited as the biggest barrier to switching to LED lighting with 27% finding it expensive to do so.

InkCase i7 Plus E ink display case for iPhone 7 Plus

cover2Oaxis, a leading consumer technology company, today announces the latest in its family of E-Ink cases, the InkCase i7 Plus for iPhone 7 Plus is now live on crowd funding platform Kickstarter. The multifaceted, scratch-resistant and now waterproof smart case merges the functionality of an e-reader with the convenience of a smartphone to bring users the world’s most advanced E Ink display for the iPhone 7 Plus.

Following on from the massive success of the InkCase i7, the i7 Plus now has the latest Carta 1.2 E Ink panel; the most advanced E Ink screen available in the industry. The contrast is vastly improved where white is brighter and black is darker, a huge improvement when compared to the E Ink Pearl used in most e-reader devices, including the Amazon Kindle. This super thin case adds only 4mm of thickness to the iPhone 7 Plus and is surprisingly light despite its smart capabilities.

The anti-glare screen absorbs the sun rays and reduces reflexion so you can now read a book on the beach! The screen area, now 5.2”, has also been increased by 40% from the original iPhone 7 and unlike other e-readers, has the added benefit of removing all distractions, including advertisements. Plus, with its “Read It Now” function, users can archive downloaded articles from mobile browsers and apps as well as multiple eBooks for the ultimate offline reading experience, without draining their iPhone’s battery.

Oaxis has listened and acted upon customer feedback on its previous models and now the InkCase i7 Plus has the ability to offer push news functions; a self-learning algorithm to display news for individual users based on their preferred genre. This news function is also automatically transferred to the InkCase so you no longer have to manually sync them. To the relief of all, the new case has the added benefit of eliminating distractions by automatically removing all ads and annoying links, images and texts.  To add a personal touch, users can further personalise their display wallpaper with a customisable template for live information centre widgets such as reminders, calendar, time or steps that day.

The InkCase i7 Plus allows users to edit photos via the InkCase iOS application and Bluetooth technology and now features a selfie assistance feature. This is a real-time reflection of the rear camera view, so users can ensure they are in the frame to capture better quality selfies than they would if using the less impressive front facing camera.

The InkCase i7 Plus also features functionalities including receiving push notifications, creating task lists, and tracking physical activities with the Health App integration.

To ensure a great performance, the InkCase i7 Plus’s memory is equipped with 128MB RAM and 256MB internal storage. With an IP67 rating, the case is also now waterproof, dust proof and sand proof and with the shockproof case now utilising BubblePro Technology, you can be sure your device will be fully protected.

Don’t own an iPhone 7 Plus yet or planning to upgrade? No problem!

For those considering purchasing the iPhone 8 in September, Oaxis will offer backers the unique opportunity to return their InkCase i7 Plus and upgrade to the next InkCase for iPhone 8 with a generous discount of 50%.

Oaxis are also offering regular iPhone owners the opportunity to get involved and support the campaign. For just US$50 (£39.23), Oaxis will give backers an InkCase IVY (smart case with E-Ink screen designed to conserve phone battery and serve users daily reminders, tasks, and notifications) worth US$69 (£54.14) and US$75 (£58.85) depending on design AND a US$50 (£39.23) cash voucher that can be used on oaxis.com to purchase the InkCase i7. No one needs to miss out on this great campaign!

1MORE brings its award winning Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones to the UK

triple_mainDescribed by The Wall Street Journal as ‘China’s answer to Beats’, specialist audio manufacturer 1MORE today introduces its award winning Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones to the UK. The headphones feature two balanced armatures and a separate dynamic driver to deliver an extremely accurate listening experience with unsurpassed dynamic power and are available for just £99.99 from http://uk.1more.com

1MORE uses the latest patented designs and materials to enhance sound, comfort and aesthetic appeal. From aerospace grade materials to genuine Swarovski crystals, 1MORE takes no shortcuts to maintain a standard of modern excellence in both function and form. 1MORE may not as yet be a well-known audio brand in the UK, but it has sold more than 10 million earphones in China and has expanded globally into X countries including the highly competitive U.S market. The Triple Driver In Ear Headphones have received rave reviews in all territories and been described as ‘an audiophile bargain’, ‘impressive sound at a great price’ and ‘simply wow.’

Winner of numerous awards including the “Best of Award” for home theatre review and 2016 winner of the Richard Beers Innovation Award, the Triple Driver In-Ear headphones have been expertly tuned by Grammy Award winning sound engineer Luca Bignardi to deliver a precise representation of a listener’s favourite music.  The two balanced armatures and a separate dynamic driver deliver an extremely powerful yet intimate listening experience which together create a spacious and transparent feeling of having nothing between users and their music.

The patented armatures work together to deliver sizzling highs and can withstand extremely high input power without distortion. They have an extended frequency range up to 40,000 Hz to reproduce high-resolution audio – frequencies in this range add “transients”, a sonic quality normally only heard in live music. The armatures are uniquely inset with durable silicone covers for lasting performance and resilience. The patented triple layer driver with aerospace grade metal inside two outer layers of PET, a resilient polymer, greatly increases bass and midrange response time, definition, and fullness.

 

The headphones are comprised of a lightweight aluminium body with an interior enamelled copper wrapped around Kevlar cable to increase durability and strength. The surface of the cable is enhanced by TPE for softness and comfort with a final braided layer of nylon for lasting resilience and tangle resistance. The oblique angled ear fittings naturally match the ear canals and the snug fit increases noise isolation, fullness, and bass to ensure a fully satisfying listening experience without the need for unhealthy volume levels. There are 6 sets of different ear tip sizes included to ensure a good fit for all ears.

The Triple Driver’s dual-system intelligent control technology also supports both Apple devices and mainstream Android devices, solving the in-line control compatibility between the current Apple and Android system, allowing users to turn up or down the volume and select between songs. The headphones also have hands-free calling capability where problematic cross-talk is a thing of the past with ground wires set independently to provide a high fidelity sound experience so users can focus on their conversations, instead of background static. Additionally, the single-sided control is control is conveniently located for easy access when it is required to take a call.

Available for just £99.99, the 1MORE Triple Driver in-ear headphones deliver a spectacular sound at amazing value when compared to other headphones of similar specifications available in the market. 1MORE are proud to be superior to the industry standard.

Zappar showcases Accuray’s innovative technology through Mixed Reality

Zappar, the world leaders in augmented and mixed reality, has partnered with Accuray to help bring to life the company’s new Radixact™ Treatment Delivery System at the annual European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) meeting in Vienna, Austria. Renowned for its leading-edge medical solutions, our latest innovation enabled Accuray to demonstrate some highly advanced features of the Radixact System through Zappar’s new mixed reality technology.

Using Zappar’s technology, delegates who attended the meeting were taken on a journey ‘inside’ the physical machinery, bringing to life the internal components and offering a unique view of the product itself – all via ‘pointcodes’ which allowed a mobile device to track digital content to the physical device.

Designed especially for the ESTRO meeting, the inner workings showed potential customers how x-ray radiation, refined beamlines and fast imaging technology are used to deliver treatments to patients.  This offered an invaluable opportunity for the company to actively engage with customers and key decision makers. Birgit Fleurent, Chief Marketing Officer at Accuray commented, “We are working with Zappar to present an alternative digital channel which enables us to effectively demonstrate our products to a larger number of customers. As a company, we pride ourselves in providing innovative technology to the medical industry and our marketing solutions should be no different. We have achieved an overwhelmingly positive response to the mixed reality technology from this year’s attendees at ESTRO, which demonstrates just how valuable this type of innovation is for the industry.”

Max Dawes, Partnerships Director at Zappar, added, “Mixed reality can add real value to the medical industry especially in conveying the features and benefits of highly technical pieces of machinery to customers. We were excited to work closely with Accuray to make sure we delivered a practical and engaging solution that demonstrated the company’s innovative product in the best possible way.”

Philips launches S-line and V-line displays

243V7QDABX_ftl_rflxMMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips monitors, is extending its S7-line and V7-line. These lines bring great visuals to organisations and home-office users who seek displays that drive business efficiency at a good value. V7 is the entry point line with all essential features for productivity, while S7 also incorporates some premium features. S7’s complete line-up will consist of 2 variations in the size 21.5 inches and 4 variations in the size 23.8 inches. V7’s complete line-up provides an even larger spectrum to choose from, with 2 variations in 21.5; 3 in 23.8 and 4 in 27 inches. Both lines are equipped with technologies oriented toward wellbeing of the eyes during prolonged screen use.

Quality, performance and durability
Powerful and easy-to-use, the S7-line and V7-line displays offer the right mix of performance, essential features and affordability. They make screen time easier, more productive and budget-friendly for home-office users as well as for public and private-sector organisations ranging from call centres to schools and libraries, public and private offices.

Both display lines feature innovations that would not be out of place even on higher-end models. Even at first glance, the S7 displays, in particular, are built to impress, with a slimmer bezel and stand column that create a clean, minimalistic look as well as taking up far less room on the desktop. The latest models – in both S7 and V7 lines – are all frameless on three sides. As well as looking good, the seamless design is valuable for apps that need two displays to be placed side-by-side: the “joint” between the displays is barely perceptible, creating the impression of having one large display for better comparisons and productivity. With Full HD resolution and the wide viewing angle of IPS technology, the panels in both lines offer clear, crisp viewing, even when the screen is looked at almost from the side. The display positioning is adjustable for maximum comfort: the S7-line’s base enables the display to be tilted, swivelled and height-adjusted exactly to the right angle. The V-line displays all have a tilt option.

User-centric features to drive efficiency and promote well-being
The S7-line and V7-line displays are built to handle the rigours of intensive use, with just the right features to help users be as productive as they can for as long as they need, as Artem Khomenko, Product Manager Philips monitors Europe at MMD, points out: “These displays are designed with a host of standout features to make hours-long viewing more productive.”

All S7-line displays now feature the innovative SoftBlue LED technology as standard. Research has shown that blue light waves emitted by LED displays can potentially affect vision over time. SoftBlue is a technology built in the hardware of the monitor, which aims to counter this. Without compromising the colour or image, SoftBlue reduces the harmful blue light waves. V7-line displays feature a technology with similar effect – LowBlue light mode. LowBlue light mode is a software solution which reduces harmful LED blue light.

Other features oriented towards users’ eye comfort are EasyRead (S7 and V7-lines), which creates a paper-like reading experience for long documents, and SmartContrast (S7 and V7-lines), which auto-adjusts colours and backlight intensity to what is being displayed on the screen (the optimum settings for a spreadsheet, for example, are very different to those for video-viewing).

In line with the needs of business users, S7-line displays are equipped with additional capabilities. Built-in stereo speakers ensure a multimedia experience with great sound in tasks such as videoconferencing, and Flicker-Free technology regulates brightness and reduces flicker effects for more comfortable viewing.

Foobot Launches its Leading Smart Indoor Air Quality Monitor

unfvdspecifiedLuxembourg based company, Airboxlab, today announces that its connected indoor air quality monitor, Foobot, is now available in the UK. Foobot is the brainchild of CEO, Jacques Touillon, who wanted to help his eldest child in his fight against asthma and after looking without success for a device to fight this invisible enemy was determined to improve his son’s health and to develop a solution himself. Foobot was born.

Foobot is the most advanced data processing smart monitor in the market, helping you take control of your indoor air quality, either by working with other home automation devices or simply by giving you detailed knowledge of something which is effectively invisible. By scanning your environment day and night and learning from your habits, Foobot will provide you warnings and actionable advice to keep your air in the home fresh and pollution free. It constantly measures VOCs, PM2.5s, CO2, temperature and humidity, and logs them in five minute intervals to find the best solution for air quality needs.

Poor air quality can impair our health, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, eye, nose and throat infections and can aggravate allergies and asthma. To protect our health and preserve our quality of life, indoor air quality is fundamental. Foobot turns invisible indoor pollution into a tangible, visible thing thanks to its soft coloured LED light, meaning air quality can be easily viewed and assessed and appropriate action can be taken if required to improve it.

Most consumers who purchase Foobot use it as a source of knowledge, empowering them to make better choices and decisions. Foobot provides the right information at the right time to take care of existing problems and prevent the creation of new ones. This could be as simple as opening a window but with Foobot you’ll know exactly when it’s required and for how long – very useful if it’s freezing cold outside or you live on a main road! The Foobot app gives you access to real time information, so over a longer period of time, helps you understand which household products, carpets or even furniture are releasing a frequent dose of pollutant. With this knowledge, you can amend your behaviour and habits to avoid pollution production. It also creates a more comfortable living space for the whole family by ensuring it is at the right temperature and humidity. Temperature can also affect the release of pollutants in your house, such as when temperatures rise, the glue present in everyday furniture emits more formaldehyde, a well-known carcinogenic VOC.

Foobot can also work closely with other smart home devices with a connected thermostat such as Google Nest to control your home’s temperature or can communicate directly with Amazon Echo. When any pollutants exceed healthy levels, Foobot will relay this information allowing Alexa to talk about the problem to you via voice and suggest possible solutions. Foobot can essentially be an active part of the smart home ecosystem helping trigger the ventilation, filtration, purification system or appliances. With the help of IFTTT, Foobot can also connect to 120+ home appliances, including HIVE, the connected thermostat from British Gas.

Foobot uses internal sensors to check for pollution in the form of chemicals and particulate matter, which are up to five times more common indoors as a result of confinement and alerts you via its companion app and the LEDs on the device itself. The device is sensitive to:

•            PM2.5s – Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 micrometres, like dust, pollen and pet dander

•             VOCs – Volatile organic compounds, toxic gases like formaldehyde and ammonia. This sensor is also sensitive to carbon monoxide, a potentially dangerous gas.

•             Carbon dioxide – Exhaled naturally from humans. Not itself harmful, but indicative of poor circulation. This is measured via data from other sensors.

•             Humidity – Low humidity can cause irritation. Excessive humidity let mould and dust mites grow.

•             Temperature – Mostly for comfort, but still important to optimise

Indoor air pollution isn’t just a threat at home. We spend an average of 90% of our lives indoors, whether in a school, office, hotel, hospital or at the shopping centre. Aside from long-term health benefits, breathing clean air keeps people awake and productive, so they can work, study and play.

Clean air is even more critical for people suffering or recovering from health issues. At hospitals, well-circulated air can minimise the spread of airborne diseases. Since children are particularly susceptible to asthma, clean air at schools is perhaps more important than at home given their high occupancies. In the UK, around 5.4 million people suffer from asthma that pollution can exacerbate. For those affected, air pollution reduces life expectancy by an average of over eleven years. This is nearly 5% of all annual UK deaths but amazingly, there is very little awareness of the problem, making air pollution an invisible public health crisis that affects much of the UK.

Silent and antibacterial – the new SPEEDLINK AXON

AXONSpeedlink is proud to present an updated version of its successful ergonomic desktop mouse, the AXON. The upgraded version packs two fresh new features: with its silenced buttons, it produces virtually no noise, plus its special antibacterial coating kills up to 99% of bacteria.

At a time when flu germs are lurking everywhere, good personal hygiene habits are all the more important – hands are only shaken when absolutely necessary, and when you take public transport it smells more like a cross between a hygiene wipe and a hot tub filled with cold remedy products. And it isn’t just public transport, toilets and doctors’ surgeries that harbour bacteria – these pathogens can be found virtually everywhere, with frequently used objects and devices in particular, such as smartphones, TV remotes and even computer mice, being afflicted.

Now protection is at hand against bacterial infection at the desktop thanks to SPEEDLINK’s updated version of the AXON. The mouse features a special antibacterial rubber coating based on the antibacterial properties of silver, which kills up to 99% of bacteria. And the AXON can do a lot more besides: thanks to its silent main buttons the mouse stops generating its own sound effects and you get to enjoy quiet clicks.

“We have upgraded the AXON, one of our most popular office mice, so it’s even better adapted to meet workplace demands. Whether you use it at home or in the office, this ergonomic mouse lets you work without your hand feeling strained, plus you won’t get disturbed by clicking noises – it also makes your workplace a more relaxing and hygienic environment. We’re already working on bringing these great features to our other mice”, said Henner Schröder, Head of Product Management at Jöllenbeck GmbH.

The mouse will be available from online and high-street stores from the start of March 2017 for an RRP of €29.99.

Features:

  • 5-button USB mouse
  • Antibacterial coating – kills up to 99% of bacteria
  • Silenced main buttons for quiet clicks
  • Non-slip rubberised side panels
  • Ergonomic, full-size design with easy access thumb buttons
  • Optical sensor with an adjustable resolution of up to 2400dpi
  • Fast, driverless installation
  • Cable length: 1.5m
