SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--LuDela today introduced the world’s smartest and safest real-flame candle. Featuring unprecedented Wi-Fire technology, the LuDela smart candle is the first to feature a real flame that can be lit, extinguished and controlled via a smartphone and eliminates the need for matches or other fire starters. LuDela addresses safety and aesthetic concerns that candle burners have faced for centuries, resulting in a safer, more convenient, and hassle-free approach to burning candles that delivers increased peace of mind and enjoyment to users.

“There’s nothing quite like the glow, smell, and ambience of candles, but with it comes the fire risk, wax mess, hassles with wicks, and the time it takes to light and extinguish multiple candles,” said Jamie Bianchini, co-founder & CEO, LuDela. “LuDela addresses these issues with a smart candle that delivers the convenience and increased safety benefits of LED candles, but with the magic and fascination of a real flame. Combined with our social mission, LuDela delivers better light and better lives around the world.”

LuDela melds the beauty of traditional candles with 21st century Wi-Fire technology. Its innovative burning design utilizes 100 percent of the natural candle wax with no buried wicks and an “Everbrite Flame” that guarantees the candle will always shine bright. The LuDela smartphone app lights, extinguishes, and controls multiple candles with the touch of a button.

LuDela Smart Candle features with Wi-Fire technology include:

• Instant Ambiance


• Candle Remaining Meter

• Tap to Extinguish

• Scene Modes

• Multi-Zone Lighting

• Long-Life Rechargeable Batteries

• Timer

• App Controls Multiple Candles


LuDela Safety features include:

• Proximity Extinguish


• Reverse Burn Design

• Extinguish on Tip Over

• Safe Wax Pool Design

• Smart Scan

• Smartphone Safety Alerts

• Child-Lock App

• Low Battery Detection


The inspiration for LuDela came about during Jamie Bianchini’s well-documented world travels. While in Africa, he became aware that the primary source of light for many families is a kerosene lamp, the fumes of which the World Health Organization compares to smoking up to 40 cigarettes a day. Kerosene is also expensive, eating into the family’s monthly budget, creating an ongoing cycle of poverty. Bianchini was also troubled by the lack of books and education available in communities throughout the continent. As a result, LuDela will use a portion of every sale to deliver solar lighting and books to developing countries.

The LuDela smart candle is available at an introductory price of $99 at with delivery expected in early 2017. Special preorder bundles and subscriptions–including LuDela’s Seasonal Scented Subscription that features curated scented refills that change with the season–are also available. Unlike standard pillar candles, LuDela burns 100 percent of the wax refills. As a result, consumers benefit from savings of up to 45 percent compared to other natural candles.

“LuDela literally pays for itself,” added Bianchini. “Within the first year, candle refill savings allow most LuDela users to recoup their $99 investment and begin saving money while continuing to enjoy safer, clean burning, beautifully smelling natural candles that light up their space–and their lives.”
