Kickstarter project lets you turn on your lights with your mobile
Work away from home? Multiple light fittings? Just plain lazy? A new Kickstarter project might be for you.
Spark is an adapter that sits between your light bulb and socket, and allows you to turn the bulb on and off from a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Not only can you connect via your local network, but it’ll also work over the Internet.
Here are some of the great things that Spark can do:
- Turn on your lights before entering a dark house
- Use your bedroom lights as a “sunrise” alarm clock, slowly fading on over 10 minutes to help you wake up naturally
- Turn off every light in the house with a push of a single button
- Dim the living room lights when you’re watching TV or eating dinner
- Turn your lights on and off while you’re on vacation so it looks like someone’s home
- Flash your lights to let you know that you’ve received a new email or text message
- Automatically dim your lights when it’s bright outside to save energy
It’ll work with any standard screw fitting bulb, meaning you don’t have to worry about replacing all of your existing bulbs when installing it.
As per usual, you can pledge money to the project on Kickstarter which will earn you a certain reward, depending on how much you pledge.
