Introducing the World’s First LiFi Lamp: MyLiFi®

Las Vegas, United States

Global LiFi Tech Inc.

Montréal, Canada, 2018-01-07 -

Oledcomm, the global leader in LiFi solutions, is proud to announce a world exclusive during CES 2018 in Las Vegas: MyLiFi®, the world’s very first LiFi connected object available to the general public, along with its professional version, MyLiFi Pro®, distributed in North America by Global LiFi Tech.

 

A double award winner at the CES Innovation Awards 2018 in the Tech for a better world and Smart Cities categories, MyLiFi® is an LED lamp with a contemporary design by Pierre Garner of eliumstudio. The lamp reinvents the broadband Internet connection with strong security and no harmful electromagnetic waves.

 

“This new form of networking revolutionizes Internet access, delivers unprecedented professional-grade privacy, and wireless networking without electromagnetic waves, a feature of particular interest to the healthcare and office sectors,” said Global LiFi Tech CEO Hacène Tedjini.

 

Materializing the non-material

“MyLiFi® is next-generation lighting that goes beyond the visible spectrum by providing easy, secure Internet connectivity. We wanted to materialize the non-material with this ‘smart’ light. To achieve that, we’ve created a simple, pure object that makes technology disappear in favour of comfort and usability,” says industrial designer and eliumstudio partner Pierre Garner.

 

The flexible MyLiFi® lamp can be positioned to meet the user’s needs. Mobile and web-based apps provide control over brightness and colour temperature ranging from warm white (2200K) to daylight (6500K), allowing users to create their preferred ambiance.

 

Made of aluminum—a quality lightweight material—lacquered in pristine white, MyLiFi® reveals its playful side with a colourful primary-colour cord in blue, red or yellow. Other variants and options are available with MyLiFi Pro® for custom commercial or institutional projects.

 

A highly secure Internet connection

MyLiFi Pro®, for the commercial market, offers unique features for optimal use in professional environments such as offices, stores, hotels, hospitals, museums, airports and more. These settings have had to contend with a serious issue: weak WiFi data security. LiFi changes everything.

 

MyLiFi Pro® enables highly secure access control, not only through passwords but through encrypted data transmission between the lamp and the user’s device, protecting data security and confidentiality. Thanks to the LiFi dongle, a type of USB key, all devices, including computers, tablets and smartphones, can connect to the network instantly.

 

The web and mobile app allows users to program and manage connectivity and lighting needs individually or in groups. Privileges can be set for groups of lamps, specific lamps or individual users.

 

MyLiFi Pro®, winner of two CES Innovation Awards 2018, Tech for a better world and Smart Cities, will contribute to the rise of smart cities by improving the technology used in tertiary buildings.

 

The LiFi revolution

LiFi — “Light Fidelity”—technology, invented in 2005 by Suat Topsu, president of Oledcomm, is a new technology that enables wireless connections between mobile devices and other networked devices using LED lights to carry data. More specifically, LiFi provides data transmission by imperceptibly modulating the light emitted by an LED light. The resulting data connection is ultra-fast, secure and free of harmful electromagnetic emissions. Light signals are received and converted into data by a LiFi dongle connected to the mobile device.

 

“Just as clean energy is displacing fossil fuels and driving environmentally responsible innovation, light is displacing radio frequencies to provide clean, responsible connectivity. MyLiFi® marks the beginning of a new era in networking,” said Oledcomm CEO Benjamin Azoulay.
