A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Introducing an Easier Way to Self Protect Your Home
Making our homes smarter shouldn’t be rocket science. At Torchcity, we envision smart homes to be the future living and should be as easy as installing a light bulb.
A Home Security Device with No Pressure
Some people may not like the feeling of "being monitored", therefore, Torchcity make a decision of putting surveillance camera into a light bulb, with solo operating security sensors and system.

Color-full (Choose your favorite from 16,000,000 colors)
Day time: After power restore, the device will be turned on only when detects people moving.
Night time: After power restore, it will be having a night light mode by an automatic lighting function. The device will be turned on only when detects people moving.

No need to cut holes in your walls or any intense wiring. Forget to regularly test your
device, not a problem. Torchcity includes industry standard smoke/gas sensors to keep
your family and important valuables from fire-related hazards.
When smoke/gas concentrations reach abnormal dangerous levels, the user receives an immediate alert. Six red LED lights will continuously blink while the alarm goes off.
The alarm is not cancelled until the user presses the stop button within the App.
Through our intelligent air sensor, Torchcity can alert your beloved family members to minimize outdoor exposures and remind them to make necessary preparations before going outside when PM 2.5 levels are high.
*PM 2.5 Air quality detection Atmospheric particulate matter: also known as particulate matter (PM) or Particulates.
You can tell the air quality by the different colors of indicator LED:
Blue = GOOD
Yellow = UNHEALTHY
Red = DANGEROUS
Weather forecast & Humidity / Temperature Detection
Our home is our sanctuary, it is where we expect comfort. Torchcity will help you
monitor your environment (temperature and humidity) and make sure you can focus on

Cross-platform APP: Torchcity has mobile
APP (android & iOS) to
control and monitor
Third-party Dev API: We provide an API that allows 3rd-
party developers to access our functionality.
Cloud Storage Integrate: The video stream is capable of Free Cloud’s recording function, and supporting Dropbox.
Risks and challenges
Hardware projects always have the risk of production delays due to supply chain management inefficiencies or production difficulties. However, at Torchcity, with our experience in motion sensor LED lighting manufacturing, we should be able to minimize these potential risks.
Currently we have functional prototypes undergoing testing and manufacturing optimization. Consequently we don't foresee any delays in the fulfillment and all the backers should receive their pledge rewards on time and meeting their expectations.
