What is ComfyLight? 

ComfyLight is a novel home security solution that actively protects your home from burglars - gently posing as a light bulb.

  • Perfect presence simulation to prevent burglars.   ComfyLight learns your movement patterns at home and automatically simulates it when you're out - never programm bulky timers and settings again to prevent burglars
  • Detects and notifies you to unexpected movement.   The presence sensor in each ComfyLight can sense presence - and it would alert you via your smartphone, whenever this happens unexpectedly.
  • Provides pleasant, automatic light.   ComfyLights create a nice and comfy light. When you enter a room, it switches the light automatically on for you – and switches it off again when you leave. ComfyLights are dimmable.
  • Check any time everything is all right at home. The ComfyLight App on your smartphone lets you confirm at a glace that no uninvited guests are there.

These features - beyound regular lighting - are possible, as in each single ComfyLight bulb a non-intrusive set of sensors, connectivity and LED technology are intricately intertwined. Core element is a highly sensitive motion sensor.

Now let’s get into more detail.

ComfyLight App - at a glance

At Home

The ComfyLight App lets you control your ComfyLights when you are at home, e.g. to dim them. But you don't have to: ComfyLights switches on and off automatically as you need it - without using a switch. 

Away
The ComfyLight app lets you stay in touch with what is happening in your home while you are away. It lets you confirm at a glance that there are no uninvited guests in your home.

Alarm
The ComfyLight App lets you know immediately if anything unusual movement happens at your place. ComfyLight's presence sensor detects unexpected movements in your home and notifies you via your smartphone.

Our first Stretch Goal

ComfyLight needs an API to enable integration with other devices, such as smart doorbells or Philips Hue. An API is key to continous enhancement of ComfyLight's existing functionality and the development of numerous additional applications. A 100% stable, well-documented and secure API takes time and resources. Therefore we appreciate your support to reach our stretch goal of 150,000 EUR/USD.

We want you to be a part of ComfyLight. You’re the architects. Let’s start creating!

Design

Product design

ComfyLight's design goes hand in hand with its function. Soft curves and lines create a minimalistic product with a comforting and friendly appearance, like a guard that is always there for you to protect you and your home. The combination of the 3 materials: glass, aluminum and chrome visualizes the three main functions to prevent, to detect and to react and presents ComfyLight as a intelligent, elegant, and high quality security solution.

Interaction Design

Our design philosophy is to make your life less complicated. We’ve engineered the ComfyLight App to be simple to use while also keeping user interaction to a minimum. The color-coded operating modes help you focus on what’s really important. While you’re at home, the yellow home screen invites you to configure your lighting setup. The blue away screen tells you that everything is fine when you’re not at home. And the red screen warns you that an unexpected presence has been detected.

Production

Creating hardware as a small team is never easy. Especially with a small team and limited resources. We have made a long way from the first prototypes that we soldered by hand on our desks to the current prototypes. For the final production, we need your support.

Projected Costs

Production Process 

We are ComfyLight

Founders

We, Marcus and Stefanie, co-founders of ComfyLight, gained valuable insights into the smart home market during our research into the Internet of Things Bosch lab at the University of St.Gallen, Switzerland. We were unable to find a security solution that gives home owners and tenants peace of mind. Conventional systems don’t trigger an alarm until the burglary has already happened – they don’t proactively protect the home. Plus, installation is often quite complex. We wanted a security solution that fulfills our needs and that's why we created ComfyLight.

Team

Our biggest strength is our team. We have brought together brilliant and passionate people. Our software developers have been working together for more than five years now and our product and interface designers have received multiple awards for their work. We have spent the past three years working on ComfyLight. Our mission is to help you, and everyone, keep their home safe.

Why we need your help? 

We have been working hard to create the best product possible and we are determined to bring ComfyLight to market. We have finalized the prototype, run a field test, improved ComfyLight further and now we need your help to get ComfyLight into production. We can’t wait for you to see and try ComfyLight. We’re ready for production, we’re just waiting for you.

Was ist ComfyLight?

ComfyLight ist eine neue und einzigartige Sicherheitslösung in Form einer LED Lampe, die Dein Zuhause aktiv vor Einbrechern schützt.

1. Perfekte Präsenssimulation

ComfyLight erlernt dein Bewegungsverhalten zuhause und simuliert es perfekt, wenn du nicht da bist. 

2. Jederzeit sehen, dass alles in Ordnung ist

Mit der ComfyLight-App kannst du jederzeit auf einen Blick erkennen, dass kein ungebetener Gast bei dir Zuhause ist.

3. Erkennt und meldet Bewegungen, während du nicht da bist

Der Anwesenheitssensor in der ComfyLight nimmt unerwartete Bewegungen in deinem Zuhause wahr und benachrichtigt dich auf deinem Smartphone über die Geschehnisse.

4. Angenehmes, automatisches Licht  

ComfyLight lässt sich stufenlos dimmen und sorgt für ein gemütliches Licht. Wenn du einen Raum betrittst schaltet ComfyLight das Licht für dich ein - und wieder aus, wenn du Ihn verlässt.

All dies ist möglich, dank der Licht- und Bewegungssensoren in ComfyLight..

Die ComfyLight App

Home 

Mit der ComfyLight App kannst du deine ComfyLights steuern, wenn du zu Hause bist. Oder du überlässt es ComfyLight, das Licht für dich an- und wieder auszuschalten. ComfyLights sind außerdem stufenlos dimmbar.

Away 

Mit der ComfyLight App bist du jederzeit mit deinem Zuhause verbunden und weisst, was dort passiert, während du unterwegs bist. Mit einem Blick kannst du erkennen, dass kein ungebetener Gast in deinem Zuhause ist.

Alarm 

Natürlich benachrichtigt die ComfyLight App dich sofort, wenn etwas Unerwartetes passiert. Die Präsenssensoren nehmen unerwartete Bewegungen in deinem Zuhause wahr und du wirst über dein Smartphone benachrichtigt.

Technische Details  

 
Sensoren

Unser nächstes Ziel

Wir erhielten Euer Feedback und wir stimmen euch völlig zu: ComfyLight sollte unbedingt eine API zur Verfügung stellen um die Integration mit anderen Geräten wie intelligenten Türklingeln oder z.B. auch Philips Hue zu ermöglichen. Auf dieser Grundlage können vorhandene Sicherheitsfunktionen verbessert und zusätzliche Apps entwickelt werden.  

Wir möchten eine stabile, sichere, und gut dokumentierte API realisieren. Dafür brauchen wir Eure Unterstützung. Helft uns durch das Erreichen des Stretch Goal von 150K EUR.

Wir möchten ComfyLight mit Euch noch besser machen. Wir freuen uns auf Eure neuen Ideen und die gemeinsame Realisierung.

Design

Produktdesign

Das Design spiegelt ComfyLights Funktionen wider. Sanfte Kurven und Linien schaffen ein minimalistisches Produkt mit einem freundlichen Erscheinungsbild: ComfyLight ist wie ein Beschützer, der auf dich und dein Zuhause aufpasst. Die Kombination der drei Materialen Glas, Aluminium und Chrom visualisiert die drei Hauptfunktionen – Vorbeugung, Erkennung und Meldung von Einbrüchen – und präsentiert ComfyLight gleichzeitig als intelligente, elegante und hochqualitativ Sicherheitslösung.

Interaktionsdesign

Unser Designleitsatz ist das Leben weniger kompliziert zu machen. Wir haben die Benutzung der ComfyLight App so einfach wie möglich gestaltet und die nötige Interaktion möglichst reduziert. Die verschiedenen Status Home, Away und Alarm sind durch ihre Farbgebung klar voneinander abgegrenzt und helfen euch dabei sich auf das Wesentliche zu konzentrieren. Während man zu Hause ist, lädt der gelbe Home Screen dazu ein, die Lichteinstellungen zu konfigurieren. Der blaue Away Screen lässt von unterwegs auf einen Blick erkennen, dass zu Hause alles in Ordnung ist. Der rote Screen informiert, wenn unerwartete Bewegung erkannt wurde.

Produktion

Die Entwicklung und Produktion von Hardware ist immer eine Herausforderung – insbesondere als kleines Team mit limitierten Ressourcen. Wir sind bereits weit gekommen: Gestartet sind wir vor drei Jahren mit dem ersten Prototypen, den wir selbst auf unserem Schreibtisch zusammen gelötet haben – inzwischen haben wir ComfyLight zu den aktuellen Prototypen weiterentwickelt. Für die Produktion von ComfyLight brauchen wir eure Unterstützung.

Produktionsprozess

Wir sind ComfyLight

Die Gründer

Wir, Marcus und Stefanie, die Gründer von ComfyLight, erhielten durch unsere Forschung am Internet of Things Bosch Lab an der Universität St.Gallen (Schweiz) wertvolle Einblicke in den Smart Home Markt. Wir konnten keine Sicherheitslösung finden, die dem Bewohner ein gutes Gefühl gibt. Handelsübliche Systeme alarmieren erst wenn der Einbruch bereits passiert ist – sie schützen das Zuhause nicht präventiv. Zudem ist die Installation solcher Systeme oft sehr aufwändig. Wir wollten eine Sicherheitslösung, die unsere Bedürfnisse erfüllt – und deshalben haben wir ComfyLight entwickelt.

Das Team

Unsere grösste Stärke ist unser grossartiges Team. Unsere Software Entwickler arbeiten seit mehr als fünf Jahren als eingespieltes Team zusammen und unsere Produkt- und Interface Designer sind vielfach für ihre Arbeiten ausgezeichnet worden. Unsere Mission ist es euer Zuhause sicherer zu machen.

Warum wir eure Hilfe benötigen ?  

Wir haben hart gearbeitet um das bestmögliche Produkt zu entwickeln und sind fest entschlossen ComfyLight auf den Markt zu bringen. Wir haben Prototypen fertig gestellt, einen Feldtest durchgeführt und ComfyLight weiter verbessert. Jetzt brauchen wir eure Hilfe um ComfyLight produzieren zu können. Wir könne es kaum erwarten, dass Ihr ComfyLight in euren Händen haltet und ausprobiert. Wir sind bereit für die Produktion – wir warten nur auf euch.

Our software developers have been working as a team for nearly six years and have excellent experience in creating novel software products.
We do everything possible to ship ComfyLight asap to your place.
