brio.jpgEvery year more than 30,000 non-fatal shock accidents occur and in the U.S.  alone more than 2,400 children under the age of 10 years old are treated in the hospital emergency room for electrical shock or burns caused by tampering with a wall outlet around the home. Those days can now be over.


Powered by Freescale's Kinetis KL04 MCU, Brio is the world's safest, smartest electrical outlet. The technology in Brio adds a "dormant" state to the 120v electrical outlet, so that it automatically supplies electricity only when it is needed, protecting children and pets, and reducing the risk of fire. The basic Brio wall unit can differentiate between a precious little finger, and a plug that draws an electrical current.


When a Brio power outlet detects a connection, our embedded sensors confirm it's an electric device -- not a person or a pet. When it detects a device, Brio's smart technology confirms the validity of the load and only then will Brio switch from safe to normal mode.


In addition to protecting little ones, Brio keeps your family out of catastrophic danger, through its home safety system using a network of wireless tokens positioned throughout your home. Each of these "high-tech helpers" is a specialist, designed to detect things like smoke, water and carbon monoxide. When the tokens detect one of these substances it sends a signal to the Brio wall unit, which instantly communicates with your Brio mobile app so you can react quickly and effectively.
