Light up Smart Slippers / Slippers

Light up Smart Slippers
Light up Smart Slippers

The smart slippers are for the elderly and interconnected with an intelligent control system via Bluetooth for indoor lighting control. When we walk into the bedroom, the control system will detect automatically based on the Bluetooth distance calculating algorithms in the control system, then it will turn on the nearest light for you. When you leave the room, the system will know that you just walk out of the room so it will turn off the light by itself. On the bottom and heel of the slippers, there is a luminous band based on pressure sensor. It is easy for old people to find their own slippers when they wake up during the night.
