What is Candela?
Candela is the world's only smart candlelight using the latest Bluetooth (BLE) Mesh technology, combining the warm comfort of candlelight with the convenience and control of smart technology. The BLE Mesh technology allows up to 30,000 units Candelas to communicate with each other.
Control your Candela and other Yeelight smart lights with our Android or iOS apps. Our engineering team is also working to make Candela Alexa, Google Home and IFTTT compatible.
Life with Your Candela
Candela’s final design was the sum effort of 4 months collaboration with multinational design teams. Thousands of sketches were devised and revised in order to find the perfect blend between light, aesthetics and technology to proudly deliver a high quality product in every sense of the word.
The Design for Manufacture (DFM) was very challenging. We were fortunate enough to find the balance between maintaining mechanic efficiency and keeping the sleek design.
The Candela project is our 9th addition to the Yeelight family and our 3rd crowdfunding campaign in the past 5 years. Below are the products we have designed.
Every one of these experiences has been a learning opportunity, allowing us to listen to our customers and design our products for your variety of needs. With those needs at heart, we proudly present Candela, the smart candlelight simulator for the romantic you.
It looks even better when you have a group of Candelas.
Top Quality Materials
We want to fully load the lamp, offering a timeless piece with minimalist design components while using top quality materials to bring you the luxury product experience. We paid attention to every last detail in this lamp.
We tested every part carefully and put the most suitable pieces in your Candela。
The Lamp Wick
We tested 32 different materials’ lifetime, melting point, radiating capability, and thermal condition efficiency and picked Copper alloys-bass to be the lamp wick material. Candela can run straight 8 hours under 14°F-104°F (-10°C-40°C) without overheat. To maximize your experience we created 1320 metallic hole arrays on the lamp wick enhanced light transmission.
The Lamp Cover
The glass like naturally transparent poly-carbonate (PC) lamp chimney tube allows light to distribute evenly and beautifully. The PC lamp cover is manufactured in dust-free workshop from a one-piece sheet that is engineered to retract without joints or impurity. PC material also benefits the lamp cover of greater impact strength, increased resistance to breakage and higher heat resistance.
Candela adopted the quiet gear drive idea. We use top tier factory to ensure every gear teeth bites perfectly and works smoothly.
The aluminum alloy lamp base with anodic coating enhanced the sleek and polished appearance.
Visual Comfort Light
The Candela holds an 1800K color temperature, which is the same color temperature as candlelight, with adjustable brightness, leading to the warm familiar copper of candlelight. Designed with health in mind, Candela produces minimal blue light. Over a decade of scientific research ranging from Harvard Medical School to NASA has concluded that we are physically and mentally affected by the light that we are exposed to. The constant buzz of our devices, our communities, and of traditional lights all have a role to play in our productivity and general well being.
Candela is Fun to Play With
Charging is Easy
Using regular USB cable to charge.
Product Road Map
Yeelight products are Amazon Alexa, Google Home and IFTTT compatible. Our engineering team is also working to make Candela Alexa, Google Home and IFTTT compatible as well.
Yeelight is a smart light company from the SOSV (HAX) incubator. We have developed eight successful products and have proudly served and satisfied more than 4 million users since 2012. Candela was imagined after one of our engineers planned a romantic evening to propose to his then girlfriend. He had so many issues lighting the candles and keeping them lit that they proved to be the most unromantic part of the night. To solve the problem, he devised a smart candlelight simulator as a reliable way to set the mood. We poured a lot of effort into making a product that we are proud of. We hope you will enjoy Candela.
