VoltSafe is the first technology in the world that truly makes connecting to high voltage: safe, simple and smart. Issues such as shocks, arcing/fire, tripping and ease of use have plagued users of electricity since 1879, when Thomas Edison first brought electricity into our homes. VoltSafe’s patented, sensing enabled technology, seamlessly and safely manages the flow of electricity, whenever and wherever a device is connected to power and doesn’t use prongs. The technology eliminates the need for prongs and automatically delivers the same power levels that traditional receptacles do. All VoltSafe enabled plugs are smart plugs by nature and offer the added value of having GFCI and AFCI technology built in. As such, VoltSafe technology is: child, adult, and even idiot proof. Lab 498 has commercialized its niche beachhead “Winter” product with sales beginning end of 2019 along with a focus on licensing of the technology. VoltSafe, electricity made: Smart. Simple. Safe.
Plugzio is a consumption monitored outlet that automatically bills the user who authenticates it. Plugzio is OFF by default and only starts the flow of electricity when the user activates it on a mobile phone. Plugzio bills the user and pays the owner, making charging as simple as a tap.

PROXXI is smart sensor that allows us to see electricity with software. We have built the first digital electric field sensor that can interpret voltage and distance. The first product we have built is the Proxxiband which is targeted at electrical workers. It notifies the wearer by vibration (haptic feedback) when they get too close to an electric current, and helps reinforce the limits of approach.
Targeted at utility workers and those in industry at risk of electrocution, it is a device that provides companies peace of mind and visibility through connected monitoring and insights into employee safety. Each year, over 2000 electric utility employees in North America are electrocuted, with thousands more exposed to this danger in other industries. Each of these incidences costs between $1-4 Million dollars in insurance expenses, resulting in $3 billion per year expense.
Currently, there are no ambient, connected, always-on devices used to detect electricity. Workers rely on process to de-energize and follow lockout procedures. PROXXI provides that fail safe backup to virtually eliminate the risk.
