Avea Flare the portable mood lamp

elgato-avea-flareThe right kind of ambiance is certainly something that will change the way we see things – and feel, of course, as our moods too, are affected by the level of lighting in the vicinity. Of course, soft lighting tends to exude a sense of romance and mystery, and if you do not yet have any kind of soft light in your home, perhaps it is time to explore some external possibilities to enhance the general ambiance – especially if you have scored a pretty cute companion over some drinks. Elgato knows the life changing power of a mood lamp, which is why they have announced the availability of Avea Flare, which is a battery-powered, wirelessly-charged LED lamp which will be able to illuminate any environment for more than 8 hours on a single charge.

The Avea Flare from Elgato happens to be a portable addition to Elgato’s Avea mood light, where it will be able to transform just about any location with dynamic light, or at least this is what it has set out to do. After all, homes are getting smarter and smarter these days, making lighting a key element when it comes to creating a soothing ambiance for relaxation and entertainment. With the Avea Flare, this will be taken to the next level thanks to nine pre-set lighting scenes which will assist in creating the perfect atmosphere for a romantic setting.

Not only that, Avea Flare’s IP65 water resistance would mean that you are able to extend your home’s lighting atmosphere outside without having to worry about water damage. Avea’s lighting effects have been inspired by nature and carefully crafted with scenes such as “Northern Glow” that radiates subtly changing shades of blue and green and “Magic Hour” made to simulate a sunset-like glow with soft pink, orange and red hues. The Avea Flare will able to be hooked up automatically to the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Android phones via Bluetooth Smart technology, without having to have a gateway or a bridge. The Avea Flare will be accompanied by a sticker price tag of $99.95.
