LAS VEGAS, Jan. 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consumer Electronics Show (CES) -- TikTeck, the brand-new company aiming to disrupt the consumer electronics industry with low-cost, high-quality smart home gadgets sold direct to consumers, today announces its launch at The Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The company will showcase four products at Tech East/LVCC, South Hall 3, booth #31914: a $9.99 Smart LED Lightbulb, a $499 telepresence robot, a $69.99 WiFi rover for home monitoring and security, and a $14.99 Bluetooth Smart bathroom scale. All four products are at price points up to 70% less than comparable products on the market.
Name brand electronics often come with a higher price tag due to factors such as retail gouging, planned obsolescence and over-the-top packaging. TikTeck is bypassing these costs by foregoing big box retail stores and shipping products direct to consumers, eschewing big budget marketing campaigns that increases the price for consumers.
While TikTeck is a brand new company it is no stranger to the consumer electronics market. For the last 10 years its management team has been at the helm of KeeProduct, a leading designer and manufacturer supplying private brand/OEM electronics for brands including Walmart, Argos, Tesco, JCPenney and many more. Kee/TikTeck owns its own manufacturing facility including hundreds of employees. Its product range includes iPhone and iPod Speakers, DAB Radios, Phone Accessories, Smart Wearable Products, Smart Home Series, Smart Pet Series, and more.
“The consumer electronics industry should expect major disruptions in pricing models to take hold over the next few years. This will be accelerated by the adoption of 3D printing technologies, and soon the enabling of downloadable hardware and devices by consumers,” said TikTeck founder Rex Chen. “Our team has launched more than 100 products in major retail channels in the world. Consumers often do not get the most bang for their gadget buck. By leveraging the manufacturing assets we already have in place, we are able to provide the same high-quality gadgets to consumer at a fraction of the cost,” continued Chen.
TikTeck will demo the four new devices at the show and are available for media interviews or sample requests:
- The TikTeck LED Smart Lightbulb ($9.99) comes with many of the same features as popular smart bulbs on the market, ranging from $25-$60, including a companion app (iOS/Android) to manage/adjust settings, Bluetooth Mesh connectivity enabling control of up to 128 bulbs with a single device, as well as offering a full spectrum of color/brightness choices.
