Two engineers from Utah have developed a smart new alternative to traditional yard lighting. GlowLytes allow homeowners to change their lights using a smart phone or tablet.
"They operate like normal yard landscape lights most of the time. Then, for a special occasion or holiday they become colorful, glowing lights. It all happens with just a few presses on a smart phone app," explains Josh Leavitt, co-founder of GlowLytes LLC.
The GlowLytes system includes a controller and up to 32 lights. Each light can be adjusted to any shade of any color and conveniently, lights can be controlled individually or as groups. Color configurations can be saved as scenes and recalled later. GlowLytes can be programmed to turn on and off on any schedule.
"The electrical cost savings are big because GlowLytes are almost free to operate. They're only 1 watt per light. Compare that to around 20 watts for traditional yard lights. Traditional landscape lights cost about $15 a month to operate, GlowLytes can reduce that to about $1," Ross Mann another co-founder pointed out.
Production funding for GlowLytes is being raised through crowdfunding site Kickstarter, where backers can order GlowLytes systems. The GlowLytes campaign launched on December 3rd and will run for 45 days. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing. GlowLytes must meet it's goal of $90,000 by January 17 or they will not receive any funding.
