About

Control as many LED strips as you want at the same time with your smartphone. No extra hardware is required. Enjoy smart lighting with a user-friendly app by simply connecting MESHLE flex to any standard RGB LED strip.

  

 

Each MESHLE flex controller has an integrated Bluetooth Low Energy chip. LED strip that is connected to a MESHLE flex controller can be controlled directly with your smartphone via Bluetooth. 

Multiple MESHLE flex controllers build a Bluetooth mesh network which allows you to control multiple LED strips individually or in a group. Due to its structure, Bluetooth mesh networks are very reliable and failsafe. All connections are securely encrypted and safe from any unauthorized access. Currently, you can connect up to 127 controllers into one Bluetooth (mesh) network.

Adding additional devices to the system will automatically expand the radio range of the entire network. A command from your smartphone is passed along from one controller to another.

Timers

Use timers to turn on or off the lights at particular times of the day or week. You can program your controller to wake you up gently — the light will slowly fill the room. Or use it as a nightlight for your kids and let it automatically turn off after a certain amount of time. Each controller can save up to 7 timers. All you need to do is to select the color and time.

Music Visualization

Sound sensitive lightning creates a new listening experience. Make your LED strips sound reactive. Let your phone listen to the music and animate the lights accordingly.

 Animations

Create colorful light animations and save them individually or choose animations from the library. Whether it’s a slow change of the hue to change the atmosphere, or the flashing energizing lights to excite a mood. Everything is possible.

Updates

Another very important feature of MESHLE flex is that you can upgrade its firmware using your smartphone. The ability to update controllers over the air allows us to bring new features for the firmware with the future updates.

There are endless awesome Do It Yourself Projects on the Internet that involve LED strips. MESHLE flex is a small controller that will fit almost everywhere. Let your imagination run wild!

Our vision is based on two great technologies, Bluetooth Low Energy and Mesh Network.

Best out of two worlds
Best out of two worlds

We believe that products based on Bluetooth Mesh technology have a very bright future. Most modern smartphones and tablets provide built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) – a wireless communication technology that is particularly suitable for smart lighting.

Combined with Mesh Network - in which all mesh nodes cooperate in the distribution of data, it provides a perfect solution that is flexible and extensible. This approach takes smart lighting control to levels that alternative wireless communication technologies have so far been unable to.

As far as we've come, we've only just scratched the surface of what's possible using these technologies.

Here are some future goals that we have in mind with MESHLE:

Proximity Lighting Control Feature

Imagine the lights automatically turning on when you enter a place, based on the phone in your pocket.

Connect MESHLE devices to your existing home automation system and control it via Alexa, Siri & Co.

We need your help to make MESHLE flex a reality for everyone and to take it further. Support us on this project. And let us know in the comment section what product or feature you wish to be built next with MESHLE technology.

There are several challenges with today’s smart lighting solutions: The more features a product has, the higher is its price and the more complicated and user-unfriendly it often becomes. Truly simple Plug & Play solutions, on the other hand, have very few functions.
We understand it’s a balancing act between the number of features, simplicity, and price that is why we developed MESHLE flex. It’s a healthy mix of great functions, affordable price, and ease of use.
More importantly, it will not obligate you to buy LED strips of a particular brand. As a result, you will get a great smart lighting solution at a much lower price, more favorable than other comparable systems currently available on the market.

Risks and challenges

Our prototype is basically production-ready and we are committed to delivering MESHLE flex controllers as soon as possible. Still, challenges and obstacles may arise outside of our control. Things like component supply issue or supplier failure do come up. You can be assured that we mitigate these potential risks through planning, communication, and redundancy. If any delays may arise, we'll be sure to keep our backers up to date.

We are aware of issues of international delivery. We will proactively assist recipients to eliminate potential delays or missing products during transportation. Unfortunately, some countries impose duties, fees, and taxes which will be recipients' responsibility.
