In an all new episode of ABC's "Shark Tank" Keen Home, LuminAID, Scholly and Taaluma Totes make their pitches in front of Sharks, Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec in hopes for their ideal investments.

About Keen Home

Keen Home was pitched by Ryan Fant whose product features a new way to control the way your house is heated, ventilated and air conditioned.

The venting systems can be controlled by your mobile smartphone to enhance the comfort of your HVAC system.

Keen Home has also thought of functionality and style by coming up with stylish and easy to interchange faceplates for your exist HVAC system.

"Our Smart Vent intelligently opens and closes to reduce uncomfortable hot and cold spots," according to the Keen Home main page, "save energy in unused rooms, and tailor your whole home's heating and cooling to fit your lifestyle."

The Ask: 750k for a 10% Stake

How it went Down: Greiner and Cuban were confused immediately at the idea of the company.

The sharks were intrigued to hear that the company has already moved 35k units through Lowes.

It was O'Leary that made the first offer but was offended somebody already made a bigger investment. He only offered 750k for 25%.

John stepped up next and offered the same as O'Leary but attached the right to manufacturing.

Finally though it was Herjavec that made an offer the two young men couldn't turn down at 750k for 14%.

About LuminAID

LuminAID was pitched by Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta.

The product is designed to be a lighting aid in any occurrence of a natural disaster. They mainly concentrated on a renewable source of light to come up with the Solar lighting wonder that is LuminAID.

"LuminAID's goal is to make portable lighting a part of the supplies commonly sent as part of disaster relief aid," according to the products about section. "In addition to food, water, and shelter, light can greatly add to the well-being of victims of a natural disaster or crisis.

The lights are easily transported in large numbers. For approximately 8 flashlights by volume, you can pack up to 50 LuminAID solar lights."

The Ask: 200k for 10% Stake

How it went down: This company was immediately appealing to each of the sharks. They all appreciated the fact that it was willing to be sold to organizations like the Red Cross.

The product is available at two prices one for consumers and one for organizations using it for disaster scenarios.

All of the Sharks began to bite at the opportunity. It was O'Leary that started the hunt and offered the ask.

John raised the stake a bit to 30% and both ladies became hesitant at this.

Finally it was Cuban that swept the rug under the rest of the sharks and offered 200k for 15%. The ladies were happy to accept his offer

About Scholly

Scholly was pitched by entrepreneur and investor Christopher Gray. Scholly is an app designed to tell students entering or who are existing college students what scholarships they qualify for.

The process is hassle-free where students don't need to sign up or fill out complicated and long paperwork.

"With Scholly's Buy2Give Program, high schools, universities, nonprofits, and even businesses can bulk purchase Scholly's web platform for students, allowing the students to get a code that gives them access to Scholly for free," according to the sites main page.

The Ask: 40k for 15% Stake

How it went Down: Scholly really got the judges excited considering how much the company has been able to generate in scholarships.

Lori and John were both immediately into the offer and both offered what the ask was for.

In the end the man was torn between the two and couldn't make a decision on to which shark to choose.

Both Lori and John came together for a 50/50 stake in the company at the agreed for 40k for 15%.

About Taaluma Totes

Jack Dufour and Alley Heffren pitch their product called Taaluma Totes. Taaluma Totes are made from designs and fabrics from all across the world.

The best part is that 20 percent of the profits from the totes are given back to the country of the fabric's origin.

"20% of profits from each tote are microloaned to farmers and small business owners in your tote's country," according to the main site.

"They repay the loan when they can and we use the repayment to buy more fabric for the next tote - starting the cycle again."

The Ask: 110k for 10% Stake

How it went down: This would be the company that really didn't catch the attention of many of the sharks.

Although for a good cause and really capitalizing on using foreign materials the sharks did trust the business model.

All the sharks turned down the offer and it wasn't a good night for Taa Uma.

Overall a pretty slow night on Shark Tank. Some offers were agreed but nothing that jumped any of the sharks interest up out of the water. Tune in every Friday at 9 p.m. ABC for Shark Tank.
