PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., April 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The votes are out and it is official: iLuv’s SmartShaker 2 has received universal acclaim for its innovative design and unique interface, as it was recently announced that the SmartShaker 2 has received recognition from the top two design award organizations worldwide: Red Dot and iF.

The announcement further cements the SmartShaker 2 alarm as a must-have product that guarantees you to wake up, while also allowing you to customize the experience to your liking by providing a number of vibration levels and wake-up tones to choose from. This isn’t the first time iLuv’s bedshaker alarm has gained prestige. Last year, the original SmartShaker received a legendary GOOD Design award for its’ innovative design. The SmartShaker 2 however is distinguished for its’ sleek structure and for a number of additional key features - like the ability to pair with select iLuv speakers and smart bulbs to wake you up to your preferred music and lighting.
Both design awards were provided by world-renown organizations that consist of industry professionals who specialize in product design, communication design and design concepts. The eminence of the Red Dot Design award specifically has grown so much that this year the SmartShaker 2 competed against a record number of 5,213 products from 57 nations. iF also organizes one of the most celebrated design competitions in the world - this year there were 5,295 entries from 53 countries.
“It’s like winning an Oscar,” says Richard Goldberg, VP of Sales at iLuv. “It doesn’t surprise me that the SmartShaker 2 is getting all this attention. At first glance you may think this product is just a wake up device, but when you really delve into the specifics you can see that it’s actually the part of a bigger picture.”
The bigger picture referred to here is the SmartShaker Ecosystem, a network of devices that connect via Bluetooth to wake you up the way you want. The SmartShaker acts as the “brain” signaling each smart device, like iLuv’s Rainbow8 smartbulb, to go off at the appropriate time.
Here’s what both organizations had to say about the big news:
“Only outstanding achievements received a distinction. All the more reason for you [iLuv] to be proud to have won an award from this conscientious and independent panel.” - Professor Dr. Peter Zec, Founder and president of Red Dot
“CONGRATULATIONS! You have won an iF DESIGN AWARD 2016. The jury’s decision is now in: 1,821 entries in the disciplines of product design, communication design, packaging design, service design, professional concepts and architecture and interior architecture have been recognized with the iF label.” – iF Design Award
