About

We all know the trouble of getting out of bed in the middle of the night just to stub your toe on the dresser as you struggle to find the elusive light switch. Let’s face it, being forced to creep across the room while stepping on random objects isn’t realistic anymore with today’s advanced technology.

It's almost 2020, so why are we still relying on outdated technology like floor-level nightlights to guide us to our destination?

Bright Lock accurately, yet subtly, illuminates your previously dark path with its deep range motion sensor and lab tested LEDs.


 Finding the right fit is easy with Bright Lock's adjustable smart features that allow users to personalize multiple settings: 





Blindly navigating towards the door handle with the help of a faint ground-level nightlight is old school. It doesn't work and only lights up a small fraction of your path, so why do we keep using something so outdated?

And sliding your hand along the wall to find the elusive light switch is not only just as pointless, but it isn't an option if your partner's fast asleep.

Bright Lock's ambient lighting and adjustable brightness settings help prevent even the lightest sleepers from being disrupted, all while saving you from stepping on that life-ending lego piece at 3am.



Bright Lock's sleek, yet innovative, design is perfect for any lifestyle and the range of colors is guaranteed to match your home decor. Permanently in Sleep Mode until the motion sensor is activated, Bright Lock only illuminates your path when necessary, therefore preserving the knobs battery life for longer use. Plus, the use of batteries means that it will continue to light your path even when there's a daunting power outage.

Finishes




Installation is easy, requiring no tools beyond what’s needed to replace a basic door knob.



Illumimates needs to reach its funding goal of $100,000 in order to take the next step towards its first full round of production, including the following:

  • Tooling & manufacturing
     
  • Updated design
     
  • Marketing strategy



Christopher Noeldner, President & Founder Of Illumimates 

Christopher has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Psychology at McKendree College in Lebanon, Illinois. He has earned many certifications including his Project Management Professional through the Project Management Institute (PMI) and also is a Lean Six Sigma White Belt, a management certification. In his spare time he likes to spend time with his wife and his dog. He likes to work out, ride his motorcycle and travel every opportunity he gets. 

Ah Ha Moment!

One night my wife got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, she stumbled around the room bumping into everything. I thought to myself wouldn't it be nice if there was some kind of indicator showing you where the door knob was and also provided a path to the door. I did some initial research and was unable to find anything that was similar to my idea. That is where my adventure began. 

 ***Orders that are shipped to countries outside the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs tariffs, and fees levied by the destination country or the shipping company.

Risks and challenges

At Illumimates we understand and acknowledge that no project comes without risks and challenges. Despite our planning and risk analysis, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. If we are met with these occurrences, we promise to communicate with full transparency to you, our backers, and work to resolve all issues in a timely manner.
