Deter dodgy types from the home with the ComfyLight system

While traditional home security systems are no doubt comprehensive, they only really serve to alert homeowners and authorities after a home is compromised. What good is a security system if it doesn’t actually prevent intrusion and burglary in the first place?

The team behind the ComfyLight connected light bulb design it to address this failing. Embedded with Wi-Fi connectivity and motion sensors allows the ComfyLight to automatically turn on and off when entering or exiting a room. Over time, it learns a homeowner’s patterns to replicate when they’re out for the night, for example, to deter would-be burglars.

When ComfyLight des recognize unexpected movements, it notifies owners through an iOS/Android app while flashing throughout the home to alert neighbors. A single ComfyLight goes for $109, with packages of two or three available as well. Should the $54,400 campaign be successful by February 21st, 2016, ComfyLight is expected to ship in April of 2016.

The ComfyLight is remarkably similar to the previously covered BeON deterrent lighting system but lacks doorbell interaction and a backup battery for use through a power outage. Multiple BeON bulbs are more competitively priced as well, making ComfyLight needing a bit more to differentiate itself.
