Bluetooth-Enabled Candles

The 'Candle Touch' Comes in a Variety of Scent Options

— February 20, 2020 — Tech
The 'Candle Touch' is a Bluetooth-enabled candle that will provide users with a way to enhance the ambience of their home directly from their smartphone. The candle features Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity that will work up to a maximum distance of 60 feet, which will enable users to light it up from various areas of the home with total ease. The candle can only be lit when users are within line-of-sight to make it a safe solution to use.

The 'Candle Touch' can also be set to be password-protected to prevent younger users or unauthorized ones from accessing it without permission. The candle can be remotely lit, but requires users to physically extinguish it once they're done with it for the day.
