Cube J1

A smart house, safe and secure, closer to you than ever

Simple installation, no setup necessary!

When people hear about a “smart house”, they tend to picture a futuristic environment that makes life more convenient, but also the hassle of renovation and buying new appliances. But with Cube J1, you only need to plug our product into an electric socket! No need to buy new appliances, meaning it can be easily installed in any household, which greatly reduces the burden on your budget.

Control the security and ecosystem of your home through your smartphone

The Cube J1 can make your home into a smart house with relatively simple installation.
Whether it be keeping tabs on your residence, environmental control, or curbing electric usage, everything can be done through your smartphone, anytime, anywhere. Why not try a smarter, more comfortable life for your family with Cube J1?

Security through the following 3 points

1. Security through the following 3 points

Maintain a comfortable living environment

Through the Thermo Pixi temperature and humidity sensors connected with Cube J1, you can keep track of the state of any place in your home where they are installed, such as in rooms or closets. Furthermore, through setting alerts, you can gain information to better ensure that your living spaces remain pleasant.
We help you create a more comfortable environment for your family.

2. Protect the safety of your house while going outside

Immediate notification for anomalies detected by motion sensor

By attaching a Motion Pixi sensor to your wall and connect to Cube J1 with BLE, anytime the door is opened or closed the Cube J1 will send a notification to your phone. This allows you to be immediately alerted to any abnormality in your home. This sensor can easily be installed on not only your home, and windows, but also on safes and other valuables.

Automatic recording captures all threats to the house

In combination with Cube J1 and Motion Pixi, the Next Drive Cam (an USB wide-angle night vision camera) can also be connected, which means any time a door is opened or closed, along with a notification being sent to your phone, a picture will be automatically taken and saved to the Cube J1’s internal memory. With this, you can monitor your house’s safety through your smartphone anytime, anywhere.

3. Visible energy consumption helps with saving power

Identify and resolve energy wasting reasons

Once the state of energy consumption in the household is presented visually, one can begin to build an energy-saving habit. With the app, you can calculate the total power consumption of all your household appliances. The app will send notifications based on your house’s power usage, making it easier for you to be aware of any unexpected costs.
Furthermore, with the Cube J1 you can capture an instant snapshot of power figures in your appliances, allowing you to identify appliances which may be using too much energy, and consider more economic options.

Calculate electric fees

By inputting the price of energy per unit of your area into the app, you can get a visual representation of your household’s bill for this month, compared to the previous month in terms of usage. This allows you to easier find instances of overuse.

A more convenient life with smart houses

Peace-of-mind through knowing that your children are home

Mrs. Y, a working mother

We have a son currently in 4th grade. Since we both work, our son often comes home when neither of us are there… Until now I have been pretty nervous – “Is he home yet?” “Is he watching the house like a good boy?”, but since we installed Cube J1 it has been sending us a notification when our son comes home, which relieves my worries and allows me to focus on work. Furthermore, it is also extremely useful to be able to know the state of your house at any time, just by checking your smartphone.

When one is worried about their mother at home…

Mr. K, who lives away from family

I live away from my mother, who still stays in our family home. I am worried about whether she is doing well or not, but calling everyday to check is rather embarrassing… (laughs)
That was when I knew about Cube J1. Its installation is so simple, that even someone who is not tech-savvy like me didn’t encounter any problems. The motion sensor notified me of any movements in the house, so I can look after my mother even when I’m far away, which makes me really happy.

To look after one’s pets in the room while going out

Miss M, who has a pet

I have a dog at home. In summer and winter, it is difficult to maintain a comfortable living environment in my room… I wanted something to help me manage my room even when going out, and that is why I bought the Cube J1 series. Now I can always monitor the temperature and humidity of my room, and watch my pets through the camera, which is fun and helps me be more at ease when going out.

Energy management is easier when the causes are understood

Mr. A, with a family of 3

Even though I wanted to have a lower monthly power bill, I didn’t know what to do… and that is when I found Cube J1, and decided to give it a shot. Cube J1 calculates energy usage and pinpoints which appliances in my house may be using too much electricity, and it can also calculates electric fees, which makes energy management in my house more fun – just like a game. I am very thankful that an eco-friendly and economic life is this simple to realize.

Why not try making your home a smart household as well?

No need for renovation, or rebuying appliances!

With Cube J1, you just need to plug Cube products into your home’s electric sockets! No need for renovation or buying new appliances, meaning any home can easily install it. This helps reduce the costs that you have to shoulder greatly.

If you want to upgrade your home security but worry about the cost… then this is for you!


When people hear about home security, they often think of installation and monthly fees, which add up to become a rather massive expense.
But with Cube J1, there are no monthly fees! After installation you can monitor the state of your home anytime, anywhere, which cuts down on a lot of expenses. Furthermore, with notifications being sent to your phone and automatic recording in the event of abnormalities being detected on the motion sensor, you can guarantee your family’s safety even during emergencies.

Palmtop size does not disrupt the atmosphere of the house

Cube J1 fits neatly into the palm of your hand. Furthermore, the simple design with white as its main color ensures that it remains inconspicuous in the room, meaning you can install it anywhere without it disrupting the atmosphere.
