The Good Night Lamp is a family of connected lamps that lets you share your presence and availability with your loved ones easily and in an ambiant way.
Turn a Big Lamp on and Little Lamps which you’ve given away turn on too. Anywhere in the world.
Use the Good Night Lamp to tell a loved one ‘now’s a good time for a chat’, ‘I’m thinking of you’ or ‘call me when you get home’. You decide.
As your family grows or moves away, you can add as many Little Lamps as you want.
How does it work?
The lamps work with mobile phone technology provided by our technology partner Eseye. All you have to do is plug your lamps in. You don’t need wifi at home, all you need is enough mobile reception to receive text messages.
How do our customers use the Good Night Lamp?
I realised that my children could play a crucial role in this whole lamp experience.[…] My 4 year old has started to see it as her ‘duty’, and takes it seriously (perhaps a little too seriously). Since the time that the lamps are on and off can vary quite a bit, it arouses curiosity – triggering conversations at the dinner table about what happened during the day.
I have given away the small lamp to a [colleague in another building] and using the lamp to indicate I am in the office… It brings a touch of attention to the other party…. I sometimes have been called with the sentence ‘I saw you are at the office’. Which is for me the essence of GNL. This is something that is hard to explain to people passing by the way.
..[We] use them to stay connected with my parents who live away from me. When I turn it on (almost every evening, either myself or my 4yrs old daughter) my mom immediately sends some text message of appreciation. It makes our distance feel closer.
The lamps surely have changed our family communication as now my mother, owning a small lamp, now and then actively asks for our daily routines.
