1. A method for pairing an electronic device, comprising:

  • transmitting, by an electronic device, a communication signal containing electronic device information to at least one of a plurality of transmitters capable of providing controlled power transmission waves that produce a pocket of energy;

    receiving, by the electronic device from a first transmitter of the plurality of transmitters, pairing authentication and a database associated with at least one of a plurality of receivers to pair with the electronic device;

    scanning, by the electronic device, for at least one of the plurality of receivers;

    determining, by the electronic device, a first receiver of the plurality of receivers within a threshold range of the electronic device;

    transmitting, by the electronic device, a pairing request to the first receiver;

    transmitting, by the electronic device to the first transmitter, an update to the database to include an association between the electronic device and the first receiver; and

    receiving, by the electronic device, two or more power transmission waves from the first transmitter with at least two antennas, the two or more power transmission waves accumulating in the form of constructive interference patterns to form a pocket of energy at the electronic device coupled to the first receiver.
