Hi there Team,

Last time I created a forum on here I gained some amazing advice. With a new Website, and new LED Lights I am here one last time to ask for any views/advice/tips on the website, the product or the marketing.

Please feel free to post anything here, we are open to all critisism.

Thank you to all the Geekzone members for the support in the past. We are about to launch another media marketing campaign to get the name Wifi Lights out there. We couldn't do it with out the support and backing we get from GZ.

Thanks again,

Ryan Steven
Wifi Lights

Very cool product, nice website. Do you have an android app for them? Is there enough room in your online price to wholesale them to a brick and mortar retailer? An in-store display with a demonstration could net some unlikely customers. Very cool anyway, good luck with them.

Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. 

The app is called Wifi Controller 2 (it has a colour circle as the picture). You can download it for Android or iOS for free. The sale that we have on at the moment is 50% off. so Normal prices are double that. We are looking at getting them out to Noel Leaming Group, Mighty Ape, Grab One, One Day etc Maybe Harvey Norman. They will probably be looking at selling the product for around about the same price we have them for on the site. And our prices will go up to normal at the end of this month.


If anyone on here wants some BTW just email me and mention this post. I'll sort you out with a better deal.

Cheers again mate.

Oh, and we are intending on having a great display organised for the Auckland Home Show this year. We are going to set it up so that 3 different groups can all be playing with the lights on their phones at the same time. That should get the interest there hopefully.

"These were created right here in NZ and certified to be used world wide."

Are the lights made in NZ?

Unfortunately we don't have the resources in NZ to make them in the numbers that we are selling them. So they are made offshore. Shipped here and then distributed.

Then your statement on your website would be incorrect then that they where created in NZ.

mmmm, you're right....kinda. The company that designs, tests, sells the product is based in NZ. All of the original bulbs are created in Tauranga and then sent over seas to be manufactured in larger numbers. NZ created. MADE offshore. I know it is toeing the line a bit, but the idea is that NZer's know that the profit is staying here in NZ. They would be made here if they could be.

Thoughts?

Hi Lee.

The colour bulb is made up of red green and Blue LEDs and the White setting is a child white. So yes. It does go white.

The super amazing special deal that I'll give to GZ is cost plus 10%. BUT I would like all the feedback about the item on here. Good or bad. And if you like it then we would love for you to help us get the name or there.

That makes sense to me. The great thing about our LEDs is that they are FCC approved and totally cool to the touch, even after hours of running. ANSWER: You do not have to have any clearance or area cut out of your pink batts. 

Not all LEDs are like this, but ours are.

I will get a starter pack (2 bulbs, Router,Remote, Instructions) to your door for $97.00 total.

Compare that to LIFX or Philips HUE. LIFX $70 per bulb plus months and months of waiting for them to make the batches. Or Philips HUE - $101 per Bulb (and they are only 40W equivalent).

Email me on sales@wifilights.co.nz if you want to go through with it. Or order it through the website and just mention this post

But the ones you are selling are made overseas, right? If so you can't claim they are created in NZ, if they are manufactured offshore, as they mean similar things. You need to be very careful with wording and advertising. Apple for example state things are 'designed in the us'
