We need your help! We have been prototyping since March 2014. Without your support we can’t start the production of CleverLight. We have finalized the prototype and now we need your help to get the production volumes up to get the prices down.

Pledge your support

Pledge now to push the project into production to receive one of the following awesome perks:

Thing1 Wi-Fi Arduino Shield & Thing1 Wi-Fi Module
Thing1 Wi-Fi Arduino Shield & Thing1 Wi-Fi Module

USE CLEVERLIGHT WITH YOUR OWN APP or THING1 Wi-Fi MODULE IN YOUR PRODUCT

The Software Development Kit (SDK) for iOS and Android contains everything you need to make your own cool applications for the CleverLight dimmable bulbs. The SDK contains a full implementation of the communication protocol which can be used to control and monitor your devices via Wi-Fi. Kickstarters who pledge for the Developer Package will also get the THING1 Wi-Fi Arduino Shield with unique software which makes it easy to integrate the same Wi-Fi technology into your own hardware, and take advantage of all the cool features which makes CleverLight unique. This is an optimal solution for rapid prototyping and demonstration purposes. 

The THING1 Wi-Fi Arduino Shield comes pre-programmed with the following features: 

• 6 pcs. I/O ports which can be configured as input/output and controlled from your Smart Phone. 
• 1 External Interrupt Pin which can send back an event to your Smart Phone (e.g. when the user press a button).
• 4 pcs. ADC (10 bits) which can measure analog signals and can be read from your Smart Phone (this can be used for temperature measurements, flow control, etc.).
• One UDP Server/Client for your own application usage.
• I2C Interface for control via Arduino board. 

Advantages of the THING1 Technology: 

• Integrates the SmartConfigTM technology which lets you easily configure you devices in a Wi-Fi network – even if your hardware has no advanced user interface like display and keyboard (as CleverLight).
• The THING1 Wi-Fi Arduino Shield is a perfect solution for rapid prototyping. When your prototype is in place, you can easily switch to the THING1 Wi-Fi Module which has physical size of 30 x 18 mm and is completely ready for mass production. 

For more information on the THING1 Wi-Fi module, please see the separate datasheet and documentation which can be downloaded here

The SDK will be released without any restrictions for non-commercial and commercial use. We will have sample applications which demonstrate the use of the features in the SDK. These samples are ready for you to build and easy to integrate into your own applications. If we unlock stretch goal of ($100k) we will also release a Windows PC/Phone SDK. 

If we unlock stretch goal of ($300k) we will release a SDK for cloud-based communication which will give you the ability to control/monitor your devices from anywhere. 

All items (hardware, software, and documents) can be used in your projects/products for commercial or non-commercial usage without any restrictions.

If you wish, we will list you on our partner page on www.cleverthings.dk when your application is finished. See the developer pledge on the right. 

Note: The THING1 Wi-Fi Module has limited bandwidth and is not intended for streaming of video or music; it is, however, perfect for control and monitoring.

See the developer pledge on the right, if you wish to integrate CleverLight with your app or use our Thing1 Wi-Fi module in your product.

We teamed up to bring you CleverLight - Smart Wi-Fi LED light bulb. We got all core technology and prototypes in place as you see in demo video above, but we need your help to really get going. We need fund investments into production tools and place production order so please back our project and share with your friends. 

For all media or press inquiries, please contact us via email: contact@cleverthings.dk

Risks and challenges

There are always some risks and challenges when introducing a new product, regardless of if you're a huge tech company or a start-up. However, we are confident that we will deliver a high quality product to all our backers.

We have manufactured the CleverLight in several iterations and confident that we can deliver what we promise. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.

We ship worldwide and cannot promise that the product is certified in accordance with local restrictions of all countries. However our Wi-Fi module is already certified in accordance with FCC, IC, CE and TELEC as well as by the Wi-Fi Alliance®.

One thing we will definitely do from the beginning to the end is to keep you posted on all developments, positive or negative, we will let you know!

Thank you.
