VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$AMZN #Alexa—Lomiko Metals Inc. (“Lomiko”) (TSX-V: LMR, OTC: LMRMF, FSE:
DH8C) and SHD Smart Home Devices www.shddevices.com
have been working diligently to bring Smart Home products to the market.
SHD Smart Home Devices moves closer to production, reaching a milestone
achievement with the US Patent Office acceptance of its design patent
for the Spider Charger™ wall-mounted multifunctional electrical
receptacle. The ornamental design for a wall-mounted multifunctional
electrical receptacle, as shown and described.
The patent protects distinct design features of shape, ornament, pattern
and configuration of the wall-mounted multifunctional electrical
receptacle shown in solid lines in the drawings. In the drawings, the
broken lines are for the purpose of illustrating environment only and
form no part of the claimed design.
“SHD has an incredible opportunity to participate in a burgeoning IoT
and Smart Device market.”, stated A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals and
VP of Business Development of SHD Smart Home Devices, “Major companies
such as Leviton, Legrand, Pass and Seymour and others have recognized
this new market.”
SHD has received preproduction samples of its Spider Charger™ USB
outlets from its Indian Manufacturer and have finalized a design that is
ready for Underwriter Laboratories and Canadian Standards Association
approval. The key advantage of the latest design is its ability to
install and use the product in any home or office in compliance with
fire and safety regulations. The new Spider Charger™ design is more
robust with increased power output to support wireless connections and
fast charging. The device is now equivalent to installing a multi port
USB power bar in the wall and operates without obstructing standard
electrical outlets. It balances charging capacity and fire and
The Spider Charger ™ is now patent protected and will power or charge a
growing list of consumer USB battery operated products and support
multiple wireless charging pads while eliminating the need for bulky
power converters currently required when using a power bar or wireless
charging pads. The device is a convenient, décor friendly product
designed to enhanced the user experience with it’s 6 USB charging ports
built right into existing AC receptacles. High operating efficiency
reduces power consumption across the power grid without the clutter of
multiple power adapters. SHD is in the process of obtaining, further
agency certification to list the product as Energy Star compliant in
accordance with green energy standards.
There are currently 130 million established households in North America
and a healthy seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 1.3 million housing
starts. In addition, offices, hotels and coffee shops are also potential
markets for USB charging devices. If only one or two USB charging
devices are installed in new homes and retro-fitted into current homes
undergoing renovations, there will be a healthy demand for these IOT
products. Smart Home Ltd. plans to enter into negotiations to sell the
Spider Charger and other related devices in North American markets with
IOT distributors and builders. Lomiko will share its network of industry
connections to help grow the venture and then enjoy the SHD equity
multiplier without being burdened with any engineering, new product
development, IP or associated marketing costs as the Spider charger and
SHD suite of IoT products are rolled out.
