Deako | About


How it all started

Like most great inventions, Deako was founded out of a simple need. The need for connected lighting to function well, look terrific and not cost a fortune. After researching and living with partial solutions, we realized people really needed an easily upgradable lighting system. People also needed to be able to control the switches with or without their mobile device. The team set about making the idea into a tangible reality—and making it look beautiful while being affordable. So, Deako was born and it has been lighting up eyes and homes ever since.

A Bloomberg 2017 top 50 Global Start-Up and Y-Combinator Alumni, Deako is a Seattle Tech company that set out to create beautiful, personal, smart lighting systems that people can afford.
