About this project
At Striker Concepts, we are passionate about innovative design solutions. Our mission is to create unique and useful products, that solve a problem for the end user...and we do it with style! We have already produced several successful and award winning designs, and now we are adding the TRiLIGHT to our portfolio.
After designing a few really cool flashlights, we have been a bit engrossed in LED's. They have evolved an immense amount in recent years. LED's pack a huge punch of power in an environmentally efficient package, and they are more efficient than traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED's are safer than CFL's (no mercury and fear of breakage), they burn cooler than halogens, and they are much smaller than florescent lights. What is not to like about LEDs? We agree...nothing! We nerd out on LED's all the time. In fact, that is how the TRiLIGHT idea was conceived.
A few of us were in a poorly lit garage checking out a buddy's motorcycle that he was working on. We were all shocked that he could get anything done in his dungeon of a garage. This garage only had one, lonely, 60 watt light bulb mounted to the ceiling. That poor, overworked bulb was tasked with the job of lighting an entire 2 car garage. We discussed the options to improve the lighting in the room, but none made much sense in regards to effort vs expense. The most common solution would be to hire an electrician to wire in a few 8 foot florescent lights. After labor, time, parts, and scheduling the time off of work to be home when the electrician can do the work, it wasn't a good solution for any homeowner.
That's when the light bulb went off...in our heads! We kicked off an impromptu brainstorming session fueled by beer, creativity and necessity. Pen met paper, bad ideas came, bad ideas went. There was even some name calling and a light hearted brawl. When the dust settled, we all knew we were looking at the next innovative solution in garage lighting. The TRiLIGHT was born!
The TRiLIGHT is as easy as screwing in a light bulb! Just ditch that 60w bulb (Reuse it in a cozy spot in your home where you want some low, warm, mood lighting...ooh la la), and screw in the TRiLIGHT.
This innovative light will flood your garage with 3000 lumens of light, but will only use 25 watts of power. For those of you running comparisons in your head, let us help you. A traditional bulb only puts out 800 lumens of light and burns 65 watts, and for those "mathletes" out there, here are the numbers. The TRiLIGHT is 3.8 times brighter and 2.6 times more efficient. By my calculations, that means you can now adequately illuminate your room, save money on your power bill, and be an environmental hero!
The TRiLIGHT also features an ultra-sensitive motion sensor. Imagine driving home at night, and as soon as you press your garage door opener, your garage is fully illuminated by the motion of your garage door. This new scenario is much more appealing, and safer, than being greeted home by that dim, yellowed bulb tucked away in your garage door opener.
This motion sensor isn't your old school tech which leaves you jumping and waving to turn the light back on. This is new "Microwave Motion Sensing Technology". It is extremely sensitive to even the smallest motions, so you wont be left in the dark while you are working in your garage.
Every time you enter the room, your light will automatically turn on. After 2 minutes of no activity, the TRiLIGHT will turn off. If you happen to be a "hands on" type of person, and just insist on using your light switch instead of the motion sensing, just turn the motion sensing feature off and it will work like a normal light bulb.
We have been told that the TRiLIGHT is beautiful enough to be used in any room in the house, which is true, but don't let the word "beautiful" make you think we made this thing out of lace and doilies. This tribute to the sun is made for the garage, basement, attic, or man cave, and we designed it to fit the room! The robust aluminum heads are as much functional heat sinks as they are works of art. They are mounted to the main body with a friction pivot point, so you can aim the light where you need it. The steel braided wiring adds to the durability and style, and the surface mount 5 Watt, wide-angle LEDs are designed to flood the room with light.
The difference is clear. 3.8 times the brightness of a traditional 60 watt bulb is undeniable. You can now easily upgrade the lighting in the largest room in your home, the garage. However, don't play favorites. The other rooms in your house may get jealous of all the mind blowing brightness. Screw this baby into any room your heart desires and enjoy the "daylight" 5400k color temperature that the TRiLIGHT delivers. This color temperature will have a dramatic affect on any room in your home. Plus, it is proven that daylight makes people happy. We aren't officially claiming that the TRiLIGHT is mood altering or anything, but it makes us happy! The feeling may be contagious!
Finally, forget about changing out a dead bulb from time to time. The LED's will burn for over 50,000 hours, and the TRiLIGHT comes with a one year warranty.
30 seconds of your time could make the difference for our little company. We would certainly appreciate your help. Hit the button and tag a friend, family member, or coworker who might think this is cool!
This ships just in time for Christmas, so be that gift giving hero to yourself, and your friends and family. This will no doubt be the most unique gift they receive under the tree! We have something for every budget. Just check out our offers and pick the one that makes you happy!
And a big thank you for taking the time to check out our new TRiLIGHT. We can't wait to grow our relationship with the Kickstarter community! In the meantime, be sure to keep informed through our social channels and mailing list:
Risks and challenges
This is not our first product launch. This is exactly what we focus on and love to do. We have already launched several successful and award winning products, so rest easy when considering backing this project. We know what we are doing when it comes to bringing a product from concept to market. The TRiLIGHT is no different. If you would like to research us a bit, check out our website at www.strikerconcepts.com.
We are past the development and tooling stage with the TRiLIGHT. This project is a reality already! There are no real risks to this project. We are using the funding to get "ETL" certification. This is an expensive third party test that will validate our product and manufacturing to the retailers of the USA. It is not required by law, and this first production run will not be ETL certified (However, the 3rd party testing agency has already performed a preliminary design review to make sure we were on the right track, and all is looking good!). Many of the products you purchase are not ETL certified, so this is nothing to be concerned about. We are just taking that extra measure so we can grow our distribution.
So, back us with confidence. We will complete the TRiLIGHT and ship it to your door in November, just in time for Christmas! Remember, you may love this, but it could also be a really wonderful and unique gift for a friend or family member!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
