Smart Safety: ComfyLight

ComfyLight AG just announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of its smart light bulb that actively protects your home from intruders.

The ComfyLight LED bulb makes burglars believe you are home when you are not. It learns how you and your family move around your home and automatically simulates this behavior when you are out, without requiring complicated programming of timers and settings. With ComfyLight, it always looks like someone is at home from the outside, which makes you a less attractive target for intruders. In addition, the ComfyLight app lets you stay in touch with what is happening in your home while you are away. It detects motion in a room and sends notifications when something is amiss. ComfyLight automatically warns neighbors as well and scares intruders by flashing. When you are at home, ComfyLight offers automatic lighting, switching the soft white LED light on and off as you walk in and out of a room.

Easy to use 
The ComfyLight LED lamp comes packed with sophisticated technology, while still being extremely easy to operate. Simply replace as many bulbs as you like in your home with ComfyLight, download the app and connect the ComfyLights to your smartphone. ComfyLight is then ready for use, and you can check in on your home anytime, anywhere. 

Use with confidence 
The ComfyLight app shows you which members of your family are at home at any time, but privacy is also a priority, and respected. The app displays an icon for each person, so no photos or video footage. The data is held on servers in Germany, which are certified to handle highly confidential medical data.
