MESHLE flex Smart Bluetooth LED Controller

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2018-03-09

Smarten up your home lighting with the MESHLE flex Smart Bluetooth LED Controller. Compact yet intelligent, this device turns your ordinary LED light strip into smart lights. The MESHLE flex uses built-in Bluetooth mesh technology. Simply plug it into an LED light strip with the standard 4-pin connector and pair it with the app. From there, you can control the lights easily and effortlessly right from your smartphone. This includes colors, timers, schedules, and more. The app even comes with preset themes or you can create your own. Incredibly, you can even set the lights to music. In addition, the app lets you set up and manage multiple light strings at once. Because MESHLE flex uses a mesh network, you can actually expand the range with each controller you add.

Looking forward to your relaunch, keep us posted!
Prabhakar Thota
Please don't give more gap for relaunch. Expecting relaunch as soon as possible. Love this product!
Frederik stott
I'm also looking forward to a relaunch, it's a very good idea and it seems to be a nice product. But maybe it's the way the video and the pictures are. that aren't looking a good way when you scroll through Kickstarter. Try matching the white design ;) but I will for sure look forward to the next campaign. And when that gets founded, I will look forward to seeing this awesome product.
MESHLE
@Timothy @James Thank you guys for your support and your kind words. It means a lot to us!
James
Bummer that this wasn’t a success. I’ll be eagerly awaiting the relaunch!
Timothy
I hope you are successful next time; you have a hell of a product, I hope it works out for you in the relaunch!
MESHLE
@Doc Johnson, will do for sure! Thank you so much for your support and your advice regarding the image. Next time we will do it better from the start ;)
Doc Johnson
Looking forward to your relaunch. Let us know in advance, mmmk? =)
MESHLE
@Erik thank you so much for your kind words!
Erik Michael
While it appears this campaign will fall short. I think it’s a good product and that you’ve probably received a lot of useful feedback. So I’m glad you won’t give up on it, and I’m sure you’ll come back with an even stronger and successful KS.

@Exeat @Frederik @Robbie @Reez @PM
Thank you for your support guys! We just released an update. Regardless of this campaign not getting funded we are continuing to work on the project and we will relaunch it as soon we have made some improvements. Thanks again for all your incredible support and feedback.
PM
Not made I meant contacted a group.
PM
It is not that far from the goal but with only 3 hours to go it is unlikely to reach the goal. This is a great idea. I made a group that I am a member of and who may have an interest aware a couple of weeks ago. Let's hope some people were waiting last minute and back it up soon.
Reez Patel
I would really love to have this, if funding will not be complete, would you relaunching the campaign. Or, would be selling in some other means please do tell. I was looking forward to having this especially will the API release!!!
Robbie van den Brink
@Creator; if not succesfully funded, will you still release this product? Hence your website?
Frederik stott
It Dont Seem like its getting founded.... ;(
Exeat
I really hope you can make it I want this so much
PM
Thank you that makes the device even more versatile.
MESHLE
@PM We do plan to release a Linux based MESHLE library with API that will allow developers to include it in their projects.
PM
Is it possible to send command to the device trough command line or does it have to be done trough the app? For example could it be incorporated in a bigger project and the MESHLE would just be an additional part of it.
MESHLE
@Jake Thank you, Jake, for your support!
Jake Block
I pledged for 1! I'm sharing this on Reddit because I want it to get funded. Best of luck!
MESHLE
@Александр Спасибо за поддержку!
Александр
Здравствуйте! Поддержал и заказал 2 шт. Это мой первый проект и надеюсь у Вас все получится!
MESHLE
@Tom Hi Tom, unfortunately, Harmony has no open Bluetooth API that we could work with. Via Bluetooth Harmony supports only handful of devices like PS3/4 or Fire TV. But we do have in mind some sort of a gateway that will allow MESHLE devices to communicate also with WiFi network in order to make them compatible with hue and other smart lighting solutions.
Tom
Is there any chance this will be able to integrate with the Logitech Harmony Hub remotes which support Bluetooth? I see you mention integration with some other home automation products but not this one specifically.
Kyle Boland
The pledges were off to such a roaring start, and now with 8 days to go I'm afraid we won't see it funded. Shame as it's such a cool product idea!
MESHLE
@deme3erw: Hi, thank you for your support! The orders will be dispatched from Germany.
deme3erw
Jumped in for 4 pcs. May I ask from where the orders will be dispatched? (for customs purposes)
MESHLE
@Nathanael Hepner: Thank you! Glad you like it! We have a couple of videos already on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHwOGpbThHDJmo3gUYXve8w/videos
There is more to come.
Nathanael Hepner
Thank you so much for this project! I've been waiting so long for this! I have been using a rasbperry pi instead of any specific devices. When will you start making more videos of this or letting a YouTuber show it off?
MESHLE
@Lasse Soininen: 1. It only supports analog RGBs, not the digital.
2. We definitely plan to make a gateway over Home Assistant in the future.
Lasse Soininen
Heya, I have some questions before backing up the project. 1. Does it allow to control individual leds in the strip? Some led strips has option to set each led with different color. This would be great feature to have. 2. Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT etc. Any ETA for the gateway? It is a must have feature now days. Bare Bluetooth is not interesting due to inconvenience and lack of integrations IMO. Thanks in advance for your response.
MESHLE
@Alex, you're right. Unfortunately, Amazon Echo doesn't have Bluetooth Low Energy API open for developers (yet). Therefore we will have to go Wi-Fi way through a gateway in the future to deliver this feature.
MESHLE
@Declan Yes, the function would also work with the app in the background / iPhone sleep mode.
Declan
The sound visualisation requires the microphone from the phone from what I understand, does that then mean the phone is required to be awake? Would there function work with the phone on sleep mode to?
Alex Vitale
If you had Alexa integration, you would sell so much more, everyone with an alexa would want this
MESHLE
@Magnus Cross: Thank you for your support! We ordered the LED strips on amazon. It's just ordinary no name brand 5050 RGB LED strips.
Magnus Cross
What was the brand of LED strips used in the video and promos? The new picture for the project looks great too!
MESHLE
@Doc we totally agree with you and will update the image asap. Thank you for your suggestions and your support!
Doc Johnson
Like the images you have at 23sec or 54-102 sec.
Doc Johnson
I may not know better than you.... But, when I found your campaign, I just randomly clicked on it. It wasn't because of the image that you have on your front page. I usually skim through and stop at an image that I feel would be an interesting project. Maybe to get more traffic, you should add a lit room with the colored led lights to grab the attention of possible backers. I REALLLLY want this project to succeed. So, ya. Hope that helps.
MESHLE
@Alistair Thank you! Yes, we plan to create also an app for Apple Watch in the future. Depending on how well the campaign will go, we might add it as a stretch goal and will be able to deliver it sooner.
Alistair Martin
Awesome Project! I just brought an Apple Watch, will there be a chance to get this as an app on the watch?
MESHLE
@Rob Thank you for your kind feedback and your support! Yes, fingers crossed. Please spread the word, every little bit helps!
Rob Reeves
This is way better than the arduino one I built in a plastic box! Fingers crossed it gets funded.
MESHLE
@Doc we hope it too! Thanks again for your support!
Doc Johnson
I realllllly hope you're successful then. Thank you for the quick responses.
MESHLE
@Doc Yes, we do have in mind some sort of a gateway that will allow MESHLE devices to communicate also with WiFi network in order to make them compatible with hue and other smart lighting solutions. Depending on the success of this Kickstarter campaign we will have more resources to fulfill this goal faster.
Doc Johnson
Is there a way to get z-wave support or simular so I can link them to my current overpriced hue lights?
