Anyone that would like to upgrade their standard lighting to a modern smart lighting system, may be interested in a new smart lighting board that can be retrofitted to older lighting systems.
Once fitted the tiny EVI board is capable of providing a wealth of different features that can be seen in the video below. And include such things as a natural alarm that allows your lights to mimic the rising and setting of the sun, as well as the ability to control your lights from anywhere in the world using the Internet and your mobile device.
Its designer Mark Snyder explains a little more about the inspiration and design of the EVI smart lighting board :
Sitting down in a friend’s apartment watching him fumble to show Snowil, Max, Matt, and I his new “smart” bulbs, we watched for what seemed like ages and instantly knew there had to be a better way.
In that moment EVI was formed. We began researching the competition and determining what users wanted from their lights. We began designing and drafting ideas for the next few months until we developed the plan for EVI.
We believe your home is an expression of your personal style, and that you should be free to design in your own way. It is our goal to provide retrofitted intelligent control solutions to your home without compromising your design aesthetics.
For more information on the new EVI smart lighting board jump over to the Kickstarter website for details and to make a pledge from $49.
