You shouldn't need a new app every time you add something smart to your home
Growth in the smart home industry is explosive. However, each device you bring into your home uses its own app. After a while, you have to remember which app controls which device in each room. We call it App Overload. Unfortunately, these devices all speak different languages and use different protocols, so they can’t communicate with each other.
Atmos Home is bringing affordable and easy-to-use smart home control to the mass market
We created AtmosControl, which our research has revealed, is the world’s 1st smart home control to combine all 5 of the most popular smart home protocols (Wifi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, and Infrared) with voice, touch, smartphone, and gesture controls. Think of it as a universal remote control for all of your smart home devices, regardless of their brand or manufacturer. With 1000s of compatible devices, it’s the only smart home control you’ll need.
Did you know that your smart home may be listening to you?
Digital assistants such as Amazon Alexa are being used for smart home device control and many users are not even aware that these devices’ microphones are always on and recording them, and that many times these recordings are being listened to by employees of the companies that make them. This is a huge privacy issue. These companies are profiting from your data at the expense of your privacy.
Atmos Home is different – we don’t want or need your data – we’re not selling you ads or products based on your preferences that we’ve gathered by listening to you, unlike other companies.
AtmosControl, which our research has revealed, is the world’s first standalone smart home hub that can decipher voice commands completely on-board, without sending your voice data to the cloud, making Atmos Home the leader in smart home privacy.

There are 4.4 million households looking for a smart home control today
McKinsey & Co learned that 16% of the 127.6M US households are smart homes and 44% of those have 2+ devices, and nearly half of those want a control for these devices. Today, that translates to an audience of 4.4M households (Serviceable Available Market). By 2021, Kagan predicts 28% of households will be smart homes, which would translate to 7.9M households, using the same metrics for multiple devices and desire for a control. Capturing 10% will deliver 790K households and 1.9M households at 25% (Serviceable Obtainable Market). The bottom line is, a growing portion of the population is looking for the smart home control we are building.
1000+ customers and over $1.2M in investment
In early 2019, we sold 1000+ AtmosControl device in a 120 day, pre-launch sales period. And we have international interest from 150+ smart home installers and builders who want to resell our solutions.
We also won the Residential Systems Award at the Consumer Electronics Show, were featured on ABC by Clark Howard, were a finalist for American Inno Tech, and honored with press coverage by CNet, ZDNet, Digital Trends, McAfee, Tech Radar, among others.
To date we've raised over $1.2M, including a $900K investment from Luminance Brands, a strategic industry partner. This summer, we built our manufacturing line and successfully conducted our 1st production run. In September, we started beta testing with a handful of our earliest customers.
You control Atmos and Atmos controls your smart home
AtmosControl has beauty, brawn, and brains. Inside is a quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, radio chips for all 5 protocols, proximity and light sensors, far-field microphone array, quad speaker modules, and a front-facing camera with high definition display. Once Atmos has connected to your smart home devices, you can say “Hey Atmos...” to control them. You can also use the touchscreen, iOS and Android smartphone apps, or even swipe your hand in front of it as you walk past.
We build the smart home products that people are looking for
Atmos Home is a hardware OEM, and will market and sell its products via its website, online distributors (Amazon), and possibly brick-and-mortar retail. We make money when we sell our products. The average order value during the pre-order phase was approximately $400. When we begin manufacturing, we expect our gross margins to be approximately 45% and ramping to 65% over the next 2 years.
Our competitors only target wealthy consumers, but Atmos is for everyone
At the time of publication, AtmosControl is believed to be the only affordable, plug-and-play, and platform-agnostic smart home hub to combine all 5 of the most popular communication protocols (Wifi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, and Infrared) with touch, voice, smartphone, and gesture controls.
We have competitors in home automation companies like Crestron and Control4, but they only target high-end homes, charging $12K and up. Their solutions are only available from and installed by licensed dealers, meaning customers can’t add their own devices. Unlike them, our products are affordable, easy-to-use and customer friendly.
Designed and built in the USA – seriously
This summer, we built our manufacturing line and successfully conducted our 1st production run. Building them in our own facility results in increased efficiency for product iterations and bug fixes, it’s faster for on-demand manufacturing and shipping, it’s cheaper due to 10-25% tariffs and the rising cost of labor in countries where consumer electronics are usually manufactured, and it frees up the cash typically required for a large up-front volume purchase from a contract manufacturer.
Other smart home device manufacturers, including Wyze, June, and Control4, have already warned customers that price hikes are coming. We regularly evaluate our costs and we will revisit once we’re at scale, with predictable growth and demand.
Our devices will be a staple of every smart home
After proving product/market fit during a 120 day, pre-launch sales period where we sold 1000+ AtmosControl device, we continued getting sales requests from consumers and potential resellers, internationally. There is clearly a rapidly growing, audience that is clamoring for AtmosControl.
We’re launching our next product, AtmosSwitch, in 2020. It will instantly convert existing lights to smart lighting. Through this, you will be able to adjust your lights with your voice or with its touchscreen, and it will include music and climate controls, as well as access to other Atmos features.
We have decades of experience and success in tech
The core Atmos team has depth and breadth in hardware design, product development, production, and scaling growth. Each member on their own is extremely accomplished. Mark Lyle, who is in charge of product development, previously sold a wireless hardware manufacturer for $24M. Our designer, Chris Ladwig, has won awards for his work, and our engineering team has made products used by law enforcement and NASA.
We're simplifying smart home tech
We see ourselves becoming the Apple of smart homes. We want our devices in every smart home and we’re fortunate to have timed the market well. Smart devices, like Alexa, Ring, Nest, and Hue, have paved the way for several years and created the need for a smart home hub to manage them all, easily and affordably. It is our time and with your help, we see ourselves becoming big players in the smart home market. Join us!
We believe AtmosControl to be the only smart home solution with our feature set and price point. We have proven product/market fit and have assembled a core team with vast experience (and considerable success) in their respective areas of expertise.
