Our friends at emberlight are launching a cool new product on Kickstarter that's perfect for vacationers and vacation property owners. It's a simple home automation product that turns any light into a smart light.

Security While Away on Vacation

Have you ever used those old light timers when going away on vacation? Wish there was a simpler way to have your lights turn on and off as if you were at home to ward off potential burglars? With emberlight, you can simply hit the “vacation" preset on the app and the lights will turn on and off as if you were at home.

Save Energy Vacation Property Owners

With emberlight, turn the entryway lights on from anywhere in the world to welcome your guests. You can optionally provide temporary guest access for them to use the free emberlight mobile app during their stay. If you prefer not to, they can always use the light switches as normal. When your guests leave, you can turn all of your house lights off remotely to save energy during periods of vacancy. You won't have to worry if the last guests left the lights on.

Easiest way to upgrade your lights

Emberlight is a plug and play adapter that screws into your existing light socket, connects to you home WiFi network and enables you to control that light from anywhere in the world using the free mobile app. It can even turn your lights on and off automatically based on the proximity of the smartphone in your pocket using Bluetooth LE.

The great part about emberlight is that no hub is required and it just uses the technology that you already have: a smartphone and WiFi. It literally installs in seconds straight out of the box.

Emberlight just launched on Kickstarter with limited quantities at a special low price. Be the first to have the latest smart lighting technology in your home. Click below to check out their campaign:
