One of the most enjoyable stories that I have written

Steve … quickly demonstrated all its capabilities e.g. it is just awesome for home automation. (I was gobsmacked!) – Full article.

Play

Play your way. Watch or listen to whatever you like, wherever you like – all your favourite tunes, shows and movies. On the mirror itself or play it through a Chromecast.

Know

Check today’s weather, stock prices, traffic or movie session times. Settle trivia debates. Or just find out which part of a spring onion you cook.

Create

Relax and enjoy. With Embrace, your recipe is big, clear, and right in front of you, yet completely out of the way. And it never goes to sleep while you’re reading it. So you can follow along with ease.

Control

Control your whole home. Lights, air-conditioning, movies, music, fans, security system, front door, garage door… You can even turn the kettle on from your bedroom!

Remember

It’s your personal assistant on the wall. Easily add events and reminders, set alarms and timers, and view your schedule for the day – or the month. All syncs with your other devices.

Protect

Don’t rely on patchy audio from an old-fashioned baby monitor. Keep a loving eye on your bundle of joy in full HD! Both video and sound. And keep an eye on the front door while you’re at it.

Snap

Nobody likes a photobomber! Especially when it’s your phone. With Embrace, that’s now a thing of the past. You can quickly and easily take a photo of your outfit without your phone spoiling the shot. Just say the word…

“OK Google, take a selfie” … then set the countdown timer and pose!

Connect

Stick with your socials, through thick and thin. Even when you’re busy with a gazillion household tasks, Embrace makes it super simple to squeeze in some valuable Facebook time. And a bit of Twitter. And some Instagram. And…

Talk

Don’t stop talking. Ever. Even when your hands are full, or your phone’s at the other end of the house. With Embrace, you can do hands-free voice and video, so your talking will never get in the way of your doing.

Shop

Forget ‘shop ‘til you drop’. With Embrace, you don’t even have to stop what you’re doing, much less go anywhere or walk yourself into the ground. Shop while you’re cooking, cleaning, getting ready or even showering!

Go

Embrace makes getting anywhere easier. You can order an Uber, check last minute timetable changes, traffic conditions and drive times, research flight prices, or review your To Do list one last time before you leave home.

Discover

A new you, every day. Follow inspiring and fun makeup and hairstyling tutorials, without once looking away from the mirror. All the action takes place right there in front of you, so even the trickiest techniques are easy to learn.

Dictate

There’s no need to stop what you’re doing. Whether it’s a chat message, a Facebook update, a comment, a note to yourself, an email to a client or a letter to council, you can write it all and save or send it with your voice. Faster than you can type, too!

Looks even better in person

The design is contemporary and I love how convenient and simple it is to use.

It’s great having a computer at your finger tips, accessible with just the wave of a hand.
Aaron Frauenfelder, Melbourne

Form meets function

Embrace is like magic – I’ll never skip a beat with the Embrace Smart Mirror around the house – and the great thing is everyone already knows how to use it!

Geof Zhang, Sydney

We’ve had Embrace for a month

We use it in our office for reminders, meetings, statistics on sales, and we installed a weather forecast app as a screensaver. The best thing about it is that it blends in with the room’s design. It’s like a normal mirror, but it lights up when you walk in front of it.

Roland Murg, Romania

We’ve lost our Smart Mirror!

We purchased a Smart Mirror for the kitchen so we could check email and use if for following recipes (hate using my phone). But we lost it to our kids, now they hog it watching YouTube videos! Great fun and highly recommended.

FAQ

You can control it just as you would any other Android™ device: with touch and voice. But there’s one big difference: you don’t have to touch Embrace to wake it up. It has an inbuilt motion sensor, so it wakes automatically when you approach it. This means you can use it with your voice immediately.

Yep. Just sign in with your Google account and Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Chrome, Docs… will all sync automatically. The same applies to any other compatible apps that you normally sign into (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Evernote etc). In that respect, it’s exactly like having another phone or a tablet.

Yep, yep and yep! It’s certified IP65, which means “protected against low pressure water jets from any direction”. In other words it’s splash proof, moisture resistant and more than a match for even the steamiest bathroom.

It’s a 23.6″ (59.9 cm) flat-panel display with a full 10-point capacitive touchscreen.

Embrace has a 1920 x 1080 pixel high-definition IPS LCD with 16.7 million colours and a brightness of 400 Nits (cd/m2).

You can use Embrace as the main hub of your smart home, controlling virtually any other compatible device or appliance in your home. If the smart home device (smart bulb or plug, camera, sensor etc) or appliance (air conditioner, fridge, washing machine, toaster even) has a compatible Android™ app, it can be used with, and controlled from Embrace.

Absolutely. A 12-month Australian warranty: if your Embrace stops working due to a manufacturing defect, we’ll repair, replace or refund it.

Yep. So you can do video calls using Skype and Zoom, take selfies and record video, all without holding a device. It has a motion sensor too, so it wakes up automatically whenever you walk up to it.

If you can use an app on an Android™ tablet, you can most likely use the app on Embrace, such as Skype for voice and video chats, Facebook, Gmail, Philips Hue to control lights, YouTube, Kasa for smart home control, Domino’s, EatNow, UberEats, Trello, Chrome, iview, SBS On Demand, tenplay, Mitsubishi Connect to control heating and cooling… all work fine. Embrace is however not yet compatible with every single Android™ app due to various reasons including its large and unique 23.6″ touchscreen display. So a very small minority of all available apps don’t currently work properly, or at all, on Embrace. But we’re working hard towards ensuring Embrace is compatible with them in the future!

Only 27 mm. Which is a touch thicker than a standard mirror, and about half the thickness of a TV the same size.

800 mm wide x 600 mm tall x 27 mm thick. Just the right size!

Very little. When awake, it uses less than 36-watts, and when asleep, less than 3W. In plain English, that means if you use it for 1 hour per day, and it’s in standby mode the rest of the time, it’ll cost around $3 for an entire quarter.

No. Without a Google account, you can still use YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, browse the web, access your non-Gmail email, and use all the other apps that come pre-installed on the device. And you can still control it with your voice, and control your smart home devices and appliances. But with a Google account, you’ll be able to get even more out of it. Like syncing it with your phone, playing video and music through your Chromecast, getting personalised news and updates, adding events and reminders, and downloading any other compatible apps you want.

Nope! Embrace has an inbuilt motion sensor, so it wakes automatically when you walk up to it. This means you can use voice controls immediately.

Sure can, in minutes! It has two support holes and can hang like a painting using the two supplied screws and plugs. It also has the industry standard VESA Mounting Interface (400 x 200 mm), and comes with the fixtures to mount it on either:

a brick/concrete wall; or
gyprock/plasterboard/drywall (or tiles) if you can directly screw into the studs. (Otherwise the screws won’t hold 12 kg if they’re only screwed into the gyprock.) For that, you’ll need a plasterboard anchor available from all Bunnings stores.)

If you’re in Australia, shipping is free. If you’re somewhere else, please contact us.

Auto-sleep after user selected period of inactivity.
Motion sensor or touch option to auto-wake.
Tap on Mirror Mode to sleep immediately.
Select Touch or Motion option to wake from Mirror Mode.

Yep. In fact, voice-control is one of its big benefits. So long as it’s awake, you can just say “OK Google”, then tell it to do something. For example:

“OK Google, send an email”
“OK Google, add client meeting to my calendar, tomorrow at 9 am”
“OK Google, take a selfie”
“OK Google, play Taylor Swift, Look What You Made Me Do”
“OK Google, open Facebook”
“OK Google, how much is Bitcoin worth today?”

When your Embrace is switched off, it looks exactly like any other mirror. In fact, you can’t tell just by looking at it that it’s a smart mirror.

Embrace weighs 12 kg, and can be wall-mounted or attached to a stand.

Sure does! Stereo speakers, in fact.

Sure can. Just like any smartphone or tablet, you just choose the Wi-Fi network you want and type the password.

Yep. Which is helpful if you want to talk through a wireless headset or earpiece, or listen to music on a Bluetooth™ speaker or headphones, or type with a Bluetooth keyboard and ‘tap’ with a Bluetooth mouse, or pair it with a fitness tracker, Bluetooth scales or any other Bluetooth device, as long as it has a compatible Android™ app.

Absolutely! You can just say “OK Google”, then tell it to do something. Here’s a list of some useful voice controls:

“OK Google, take a selfie”
“OK Google, open UberEats”
“OK Google, email mum”
“OK Google, what’s the value of Wesfarmers shares?”
“OK Google, wake me at 6”
“OK Google, add shampoo to my shopping list”
“OK Google, when’s the next train to Woolloomooloo?”
“OK Google, what’s the weather forecast tonight?”
“OK Google, play 90s hip hop”
“OK Google, take a note”
“OK Google, remind me to eat more apples”
“OK Google, set a timer”

No. You can think of Embrace as a device that provides many of the same features as a Google Home device, but it’s also a modern piece of home decor, one that looks great in any room, and does so much more than just respond to voice commands with audio… 😉

Embrace runs on Android™ 6.0.1, ‘Marshmallow’. Of course, because it’s a unique device, we’ve had to make a few tweaks to Android, just as all the phone manufacturers do – Samsung, LG, Motorola, Sony and so on. But we’ve kept it as close to the stock Android experience as possible (closer than any of those manufacturers!). We figure why mess with a good thing?

Sorry, no, but if we make a future model, adding a GPS module and a SIM slot are at the top of our wish list too!

Yes. Embrace uses the industry standard VESA Mounting Interface (400 x 200 mm).

Only mains power at this stage, so yes, it needs to be plugged in. It only sips at the electricity, though. When awake, it uses less than 36-watt, and when asleep, less than 3W. In plain English, that means if you use it for 1 hour per day, and it’s in standby mode the rest of the time, it’ll cost around $3 for an entire quarter.

If you can use an app on an Android™ tablet, you can most likely use the app on Embrace, such as Skype for voice and video chats, Facebook, Gmail, Philips Hue to control lights, YouTube, Kasa for smart home control, Domino’s, EatNow, UberEats, Trello, Chrome, iview, SBS On Demand, tenplay, Mitsubishi Connect to control heating and cooling… all work fine. Embrace is however not yet compatible with every single Android™ app due to various reasons including its large and unique 23.6″ touchscreen display. So a very small minority of all available apps don’t currently work properly, or at all, on Embrace. But we’re working hard towards ensuring Embrace is compatible with them in the future!

Company

We’re an Australian company of geeks who love tech. Particularly tech that makes life easier.

Since 2014, we’ve thought the world needed a smart mirror, but no-one was building one. So we decided to do it ourselves. And over the next few years, Embrace – and the world’s first production smart mirror – was developed.

Today, the innovation that started life as a simple DIY hardware project in our founder’s living room is set to become an international business. In collaboration with our engineering partners in Hong Kong and parts suppliers and factory in China, Embrace Smart Mirrors are now being produced on a quality-controlled production line, capable of outputting thousands of units per year.
