Snugr was created by 4INCH, a Belgian company that firmly believes new technologies can be used for more than gadgets and luxury products. They can make everyday life more pleasant for everyone and have a positive impact on the environment..
The two founder, are lifelong friends. Together, they have a deep knowledge of ICT and electronics.
In 2012, 4INCH joined NEST'up, a startup accelerator in Belgium similar to Techstars. A few months later, the company became a member of WSL, an incubator focusing on engineering sciences.
Snugr, the smart thermostat, is the company’s first product. It was developed for everyone who wants to make life more comfortable at home while cutting energy consumption. From a smartphone, tablet or computer anywhere in the world, users can easily instruct Snugr to adjust the temperature and create a heating schedule for each room.
Our solution uses the Peltier effect in order to harvest the required energy to remotely manage heaters, removing the need for wiring or batteries, making Snugr the ideal solution for energy-efficient renovation of existing buildings.
