16 Days to Go… Light Sentry Introduces Two New Limited Pledge Levels

29 May 2014


World’s only lighting control system to rely on real-time lighting conditions to auto-adjust
will now be available for $99

Naperville, IL May 29, 2014Light Sentry announces its limited campaign specials for its fully customizable smart home lighting solution. Redefining lighting control, Light Sentry is the only device to use actual daylight to trigger on, off, and dimming functionalities for outdoor or indoor lighting and appliances.

Packaged with a Light Sentry Hub, Natural Light Sensor and Portable Power Gate and delivered to your door already programmed to your specifications, Light Sentry can now be pre-ordered on Kickstarter for $99, the MSRP is listed at $230. Light Sentry is also offering a second limited pledge level, $149 which gets users two Portable Power Gates (the Hub, Sensor and programming); the MSRP is listed at $310.

The Light Sentry components set up with ease, unlike other automated systems on the market that fully depend on frequent app updates, remote controls or limited settings based on time. The DIY design calls for the Sensor to be placed in any area around your home with sunlight exposure, the Portable Power Gate to be plugged into any outlet, and the Hub to sync with any PC or Mac for personal “light style” preferences.

Light Sentry is estimated to save consumers 32% in energy for a single 60 watt bulb used five hours per day.

The Light Sentry project has been live on Kickstarter for 13 days. The Light Sentry production goal is $200,000.

“We are almost half way through our campaign and are determined to provide pledgers with funding levels that suit their needs, offering the most cost-effective means of securing this one-of-a-kind smart home solution,” commented Bill Dorn, Founder, Sonne Industries LLC and the Light Sentry. “The Light Sentry is meant to bring simplicity to home automation, while saving time and money. We want to make this product a success and place the missing piece to the puzzle of lighting-automation…having sunlight/darkness trigger lighting events, not just time.  After all, do the headlights on your car turn on when they are needed for safety and convenience or, when the clock says it sunset?”
