A US-based company has created the world’s first smart real-flame candle that can be lit, extinguished and controlled using a smartphone, eliminating the need for matches or other fire starters.
Using Wi-Fire technology, the new smart candle addresses safety and aesthetic concerns, resulting in a safer approach to burning candles that delivers increased peace of mind and enjoyment to users.
“There’s nothing quite like the glow, smell, and ambience of candles, but with it comes the fire risk, wax mess, hassles with wicks, and the time it takes to light and extinguish multiple candles,” said Jamie Bianchini, co-founder and CEO of LuDela, a US-based company that created the smart candles.
The smart candle delivers the convenience and increased safety benefits of LED candles, but with the magic and fascination of a real flame, Bianchini said.
Its design utilises 100 per cent of the natural candle wax with no buried wicks. The smartphone app lights, extinguishes and controls multiple candles with the touch of a button.
The smart candle also comes with child-lock app and extinguishes itself when tipped over.
