bRight Switch launches Indiegogo campaign to upgrade US homes' light switches to smart screens
bRight Switch has launched a campaign via Indiegogo for a $115,000 crowdfunding goal. With less than one day left for its campaign, the startup aims to replace the ordinary home light switch to a smart screen that can do more than just turn light on and off, according to TechCrunch.
The tablet design of bRight Switch is made to be mounted on the wall of a home. One of its features is people detection, which causes the lights to automatically turn on when someone enters a room. The smart switch also allows the user to remotely switch the lights on and off using the Internet. In addition, the device has a learning mode that automatically turns the lights on or off based on home routines that it familiarized over time, the report explained.
Other features of bRight Switch include footage play back, video calling, streaming music, built-in alarm, temperature display, dimmer ability, intercom, and motion-triggered alarm, the report detailed.
If the company hits its Indiegogo target, it US-based manufacturers expect to deliver to their supporters by July 2014. The non-Bluetooth bRight Switch costs $75 while the Bluetooth version is at $90, TechCrunch reported.
