Elgato Avea | Dynamic Mood Light

Elgato Avea transforms your home with beautiful dynamic light moods. No matter the weather outside - with Avea, bring the atmosphere you like to your home. Control your ambience from your iPhone or iPad and unwind in one of the carefully crafted settings with subtly changing light. For example, let the Cherry Blossom setting fill your house with springlike cosiness. Watch the explanatory video below.

Avea connects directly to your iPhone or iPad using Bluetooth Smart technology, without requiring additional gateways or bridges. Once you have chosen a light scene, the smart LED lightbulb will take care of the rest, not requiring a constant connection to your iPhone or iPad. Connect more than one Avea, and they will automatically coordinate their lighting to create an even more immersive atmosphere.

Even better, Avea is also available on Apple Watch, making it easier than ever to pick the perfect lighting for your mood - right from your wrist.

Avea is available for US $39.95 at Elgato , or at Amazon
