Wiz lighting, creating mood rooms at Christmas and all year round
December 11, 2017
WiZ, a smart connected lighting company that allows you to customise the coloured lighting in your home.
One of the most advanced, secure smart lighting systems on the market with no need for expensive hub or bridge to control lights, and over 16 million colours to choose from.
Spirit Glowing Table Lamp
Elegant colour-changing decoration for the dining table or lounge, dimmable – 64,000 shades of white, 16 million colours and works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
The patented WiZ technology lets you enjoy full control of all your lights whether it’s through WiFi, mobile data networks, the infrared remote or your existing switches. By giving you more ways to control, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to how you’d like to interact with light.
Advanced voice control
For most lighting products with voice control capability, smart home skills are limited to only switching the lights on/off and dimming.
Streamline your life
Thanks to the cloud, WiZ lights integrate easily with most other connected systems so you can use triggers from your other favorite apps.
With Amazon Alexa, not only do you have the WiZ smart home skill, but you also get the WiZ custom skill (listed as “WiZ Advanced skill” on the Alexa store) to let you enjoy immersive WiZ dynamic light modes such as forest, mojito or romance.
For Google, WiZ is supported by “Direct Actions”, where the Google Assistant on Google Home or your smartphone lets you control your lights in the most natural way possible – just by talking to it.
Turn your lights on in your home from your office and vice versa. You can even control your WiZ locations from as far away as the moon. As long as you’ve got internet access, you can do what you want to do with your lights – even when you’re not physically there.
We have a powerful multi-user system with three different access right tiers over multiple WiZ locations:
Owners can change settings and control the lights in all their WiZ locations – as long as they have internet connectivity.
Guests can enjoy control over lights when they’re on the same WiFi network – but they won’t be allowed to change any settings.
Temporary guests have the same permissions as ordinary guests… but they will lose access after a certain time period that you get to set for them – each one can be different!
No Hub Needed
Each WiZ light has its own brain – a 32-bit MCU chip with WiFi – for smarter automation, as our lights are directly, constantly and reliably connected to the cloud for up-to-date preferences and settings without any dependency on a hub or bridge.
No Bridge Needed Image
Solutions on the market rely on a bridge linked with constant processing from smart devices. These external “brains” are connection relays controlling the not-so-smart bulbs, which create several bottlenecks in the light control system. And bridges are single points of failure with a high security risk.
On top of additional cost, a bridge takes extra time for initial set up of a lighting system. The bridgeless architecture we built up lets you enjoy any individual WiZ light immediately. And your privacy is protected via anonymous sign-in and TLS 1.2 encrypted cloud connections.
WiZ brings total flexibility with 64,000 shades of white and preset well-being modes. Your eyes deserve the right light temperature and intensity to focus on a laptop screen, read a magazine or gradually get yourself ready for bed.
Now with adjustable whites and colors, WiZ lighting experts have designed dynamic modes that completely outshine any other smart lighting products available right now. Like great music tracks, artfully synchronized and randomized, our modes make any room glow with stunning lighting ambiences.
After all, why settle for the same 2,700K CCT of our great-grandparents when we can have so much more instead? Other companies tried to deliver upon the smart lighting promise by tackling a singular, minimalistic white option… but we made the tough choice to not compromise on either hardware or software to put the best technology around WiZ.
Loaded with memory
Each WiZ light has 2MB of flash memory, with more than enough space to run complex software smoothly, manage secure updates and store as many settings as needed.
This memory also allows the light to be pre-loaded with dynamic light modes such as the ever-popular fireplace, mesmerizing deep dive or fun and light-hearted pastel colors, so that you can still enjoy amazing lighting ambiences modes even without a smartphone nearby.
We have transparent and forced upgrades to ensure that all devices are up-to-date with the latest security patches. Our lights have two firmware slots, with one reserved to store a firmware backup in case there’s an interrupted update to ensure that your lights work all the time.
The WiZ API, hosted on Amazon Web Services, includes safe authentication through OAuth 2.0.
