(September 16, 2014 – San Francisco, CA) No tricks – all treats for seasonal home decorators as San Francisco-based LivingPlug introduces its Halloween line of decorative faceplates for its multi-use, energy-efficient and child-proof INLET. With a mission to help consumers take a bite out of utility bills, LivingPlug created the INLET to help reduce “Vampire Charges” caused when electronics suck power even when turned off. The INLET is tamper-resistant which provides parents with an extra assurance when child-proofing their home.
The INLET turns a standard outlet into three receptacles plus a USB source and features the “UNplug button” which shuts off power and eliminates the need to physically UNplug devices from the outlet. The Company estimates consumers can reduce their electrical bill 15-25% by using the “UNplug” button.
The Company steps into the multi-billion dollar Halloween market where candy may lead but costumes, novelty items, and home decor continue to take a bite at year-over-year sales.
“We’re bringing a new accent piece into the home that delivers on design and functionality,” says co-founder Sam Leichman. “Outlets are in every room and are a dilemma for designers so we decided to make them a focal point by offering a decorative faceplate which will enhance the living space.”
LivingPlug offers hundreds of designs ranging from nature scenes, graphic prints, noted artists, inspirational quotes, holiday and seasonal, as well as a line of children’s inspired looks.
To help reduce “Vampire Charges,” the Company released several Halloween-inspired designs. Choose from a Happy Pumpkin, Silly Ghost, Haunted House, and variety of fall scenes to decorate before the first Trick-or-Treaters arrive. Additionally, the company offers a line of Christmas to holiday season designs.
The LivingPlug INLET retails for $25 and each faceplate is $25. The Company delivers on DIY as well: upload a personal photo, school mascot, or favorite quote and LivingPlug will create a customized faceplate.
