An automated oil diffuser that creates a tranquil domestic environment

Scent can play a large part in changing the atmosphere in a space. It only makes sense that technological advances can make the process of picking the right scent easier. Lumiere wants to make home diffusers smarter by syncing the release of relaxing scents to specific moments. The device, for example, can automate scents to start when the user comes home or when an alarm clock goes off in the morning.

An app for iOS and Android devices lets users start and stop diffusion, switch scents and choose settings for the intensity of the diffuser. A menu lets users indicate members of the household—with categories for ‘pregnant woman,' ‘infant' and ‘cat or dog'—to keep the intensity of the scents at an appropriate level.
