Packed with connectivity options (Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi), Zing can act as a visual indicator for incoming calls and other smartphone events.

When used together as a system, multiple Zing lights learn and automatically illuminate your path without the need for manual configuration. Conversely, Zing can notify you of unusual and suspicious motion activities via push notifications on your phone.

COLORFUL

First and foremost, Zing is an energy-efficient LED night light with dusk-to-dawn light and motion sensors. Powered by 12 full-color RGB+White LEDs, each capable of over 4-billion colors and 512 levels of brightness, Zing can be as soft or as brilliant as you’d like. Individually addressable LED elements allow for a full-range of light effects, from a cozy camp fire to the mysterious northern lights.

GENTLE ILLUMINATION

When motion is detected, Zing will gently power up to 40% intensity (configurable) via its bottom LEDs to help you navigate without blinding you. It will gradually return to standby levels after motion ceases.

SMARTPHONE CONTROL

Zing’s light features are fully customizable using the Zing app. Events and triggers can be assigned their own colors and effects.

AUTOMATIC PATH LIGHTING

A traditional motion-triggered night light will only turn on when you move in front and in range of its sensor. Zing is much smarter.

A pack of Zings will automatically learn and predict your entire path at night. Your midnight refrigerator run, your kid’s trip to the bathroom, etc. Every Zing along your anticipated route will light up with a soft glow as soon as the first movement is detected. No more scary dark doorways and no need to reach for light switches.

Zing does this automatically by observing and learning your movement patterns over the course of 7-10 days.

In technical terms, each Zing continuously calculates the conditional probability of an imminent motion event from its own sensor inputs and those from its neighbors. When the predicted probability is high enough, Zing turns on. The entire process happens without the need for configuration and is self-correcting. If your night-time habits change, Zing will change with you.

Better still, Zing does this securely and without servers. The predictions are made individually within each Zing and never leaves your house. No wifi connection is needed or required for this to work. Nothing outside your home needs to know your activities.

ZING LOCATOR

Not only does Zing help you find your way in the dark, it can also help you find your stuff.

Many modern gadgets emit Bluetooth Smart signals as part of their normal operation, including key trackers, fitness bands, smartwatches, even your phone. Zing Locator combines these signals into a real-time position of each item and makes their locations accessible via the Zing app or voice commands through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Simply install a Zing in each room, configure the Zing Locator service, and effortlessly track all the gadgets in your house. Don’t waste time looking for your tagged keys, wallet, purse, or smartphone in the morning. Find them in a snap with Zing.

Zing Locator works with most Bluetooth Smart devices on the market today and supports device beeping with select brands.

EVENT NOTIFICATION

Don’t miss a call if you happen to leave the mobile phone in another part of the house or phone is set to vibrate.

Zing pairs with your phone to act as a visual indicator for incoming calls, text messages and many other smartphone events. Perhaps a family member is hearing impaired? Zing would make a thoughtful gift.

BLUE LIGHT REDUCTION

Zing is easy on your eyes, literally. Zing automatically reduces blue light emissions at bedtime which has been shown to help you regulate your melatonin levels and sleep better.

PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

Zing is built with open technologies and can interface with many home automation platforms. We are committed to open and secure API access to all of Zing device capabilities. IFTTT users can expect rich integration with existing recipes. Set up Zing to work together with other smart home devices. Be visually notified when someone rings the Ring doorbell. Receive flash alerts when Nest Protect detects a CO2 or smoke emergency. Your imagination is the limit.
