The Bulgarian IoT company Alterco Robotics presented the world's smallest and most powerful open-source Wi-Fi relay - Shelly 1 OS, the company said. The official premiere is in Berlin during IFA 2018 (31.08-05.09.2018) - one of the world's largest consumer electronics exhibitions. The company reports that pre-subscriptions are being made to purchase the product online after the first quantities have been exhausted for 48 hours

Shelly 1 is a smart Wi-Fi relay that can automate any home or office. Its minimalist dimensions, 41 x 36 x 17 mm, make it the most compact such device in the world. Shelly 1 OS can be installed in the wall behind any light contact or key, as well as directly in the electronic dashboard. It can be placed in less than 60 mm depth.
"Shelly 1 is our newest product and we are extremely proud of it. After being put on sale for only 48 hours, it was a hit, with all the quantities in stock being redeemed, and the product is on a pre-order today and orders are growing every day. Anyone who wants to test Shelly 1 can order our stand at IFA 2018 in Berlin - stand 141, Hall 11.1, at Reseller Park, Berlin, "commented Dimitar Dimitrov, CEO of Alterco Robotix.
Among the advantages of the device is that it supports a load of up to 16 amps and can handle consumers up to 3.5 KW and an external serial port for firmware reprogramming that is suitable for developers and all smart home enthusiasts.
In addition to the standard 110 to 220V AC voltages, Shelly 1 can work with direct current as well as 24-60V DC or 12V DC, making the choice with just a simple jumper.
With Shelly 1, a wide range of electrical appliances can be controlled - radiators, lighting, garage doors, air conditioners and others, and easy to use. The user just needs to install and download the free Shelly Cloud mobile app (available for both iOS and Android) and then check the status of their home or office appliances anywhere, anytime. Wherever located, the user can switch devices and lights on and off, as well as create custom schedules that all devices connected to Shelly 1 turn on and off automatically. Shelly 1 is also compatible with Google Home and Amazon Echo Voice Assistants, allowing easy voice control of all devices.
Shelly 1 is open source, which means that by using the power of Mongoose OS, the user can create their own application as well as their own Arduino based project, suitable for Shelly 1 automation.
