Goldee Reveals the World’s Smartest Light Switch

Goldee today revealed the Goldee Light Controller – a reinvention of the light switch that redefines how people interact with light. Goldee translates information from your surroundings into smart functions that respond to your lighting needs. Today starts the crowd- funding campaign during which customers can pre-order Goldee for an exclusive price of US$ 249 directly at getgoldee.com.

“Ever since the invention of the light bulb, not much has changed in the way people interact with light. Until now. Goldee forever changes how we interact with light, and how light interacts with us.”

Users will enjoy smart features such as the Sunrise Alarm, which simulates the morning sunrise to make your morning rise easier. Sleep Timer naturally fades your lights to prepare your body for a good night’s sleep. If you wake up in the middle of the night, Night Mode helps you to get around by automatically turning on dim light. When you return back to bed, Goldee turns it off again.

The Story of Goldee from Goldee on Vimeo.

Goldee automatically turns your lights off when you leave home and turns them on when you return. The Smart Security feature simulates your presence if Goldee notices you have been away from home for more than two days.

An innovative way of interacting with light has been applied. Thanks to Goldee’s responsiveness to gestures, you can now control your lights with a wave of your hand. (Please click here for video.)

Goldee installs like any standard light switch and is compatible with regular bulbs. However, in order to use Goldee’s colorful light scenes and smart features, smart LEDs like Philips hue, LIFX or ilumi should be used. In addition to the controller, Goldee offers package deals that include LIFX smart LEDs. The packages provide controllers and light bulbs for one or four rooms.

Goldee is propelling the revolution of intelligent lighting forward – a revolution that began with the introduction of smart LED bulbs by Philips, LIFX and ilumi.

Pricing and Availability

To start production, Goldee aims to raise US$ 100,000 through an independent crowd-funding campaign, launching November 26, 2013. The price of US$ 249 is limited for the duration of the campaign with a subsequent retail price of US$ 349. Shipping is planned for Summer 2014.
