Sky Lite 2.0 vs. Evolve: How to Level Up Your Home With the Best Galaxy Lights

The original BlissLights Sky Lite went viral on TikTok for the way it transforms any space. And since then, the Sky Lite has traveled to all kinds of new worlds. The Sky Lite 2.0 introduced more galaxy colors and app control, and the Sky Lite Evolve expands on both these advanced features.

The Evolve adds even more colors, an improved app control experience, and a unique spherical design that can transform your home from top to bottom. Comparing the Sky Lite 2.0 vs. the Evolve is a great way to see that an already-astonishing galaxy projector has reached its next level. Learn everything about the Evolve and how it differs from the Sky Lite 2.0 below.

What is the Sky Lite Evolve?

The Sky Lite Evolve is a BlissLights galaxy projector whose one-of-a-kind round shape enables full 360-degree rotation. That means you can transform your surroundings however – and wherever – you desire.

Evolve also features more nebula cloud colors: a four-color base uses all-new color blending technology to create amazing color options including red, blue, pink, purple, white, teal, and orange. Alongside these nebulas, ultra-sharp laser stars further immerse you in the galaxy experience.

You can also pair your Evolve with the free BlissHome app (available for iPhone and Android) or Google Home or Amazon Alexa. This way, you can transport yourself beyond this world without moving an inch.

Sky Lite Evolve vs. Sky Lite 2.0

Prior to the Sky Lite Evolve, BlissLights was best known for its Sky Lite 2.0 galaxy projector. If the Sky Lite 2.0 could paint your surroundings in a whole new light, the Evolve brings your home into a new universe entirely. Here’s how the Evolve can take you farther than ever before.

1. Smart voice compatibility

The Sky Lite 2.0 adds app control to the original Sky Lite, but it doesn't include the voice control possible with other BlissLights. The Sky Lite Evolve changes that story. You can fully control the Evolve with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Sit back, relax, get lost in the out-of-this-world sights, and then, when it’s time for your next destination, just speak it into existence.

2. Differences in the manual controls

The Sky Lite 2.0 uses a three-button system for manual control of the light’s power, brightness, effect modes, and motion. The Sky Lite Evolve makes things even easier with just one button to control it all.

The first time you press the button, your Evolve will come to life. Every time you press the button after that, you’ll cycle to your next effect, including effects you’ve custom-made in the BlissHome app. After you get through all the effects, your Evolve will power down. You can access all other settings through the BlissHome app.

3. Different designs

With the Sky Lite 2.0’s circular design, you can shine your galactic sights on your walls or the ceiling. The Evolve is spherical and more compact and mobile, and this design lets you shine your stunning nebulas anywhere and everywhere. Just rest the Evolve on its base, then rotate it to see your surroundings like never before.

How is the Evolve's cloud different from Sky Lite 2.0's?

The Sky Lite 2.0 shines red, blue, and green nebula clouds separately or all at once. The Sky Lite Evolve’s base colors are instead red, blue, cyan, and white. Inside this small but powerful sphere, new technology blends these base colors into one large cloud. That puts the full power of astonishing hues in your hands. Teal, white, and orange-pink are all on the table – or wall, or ceiling, or floor, or wherever else you point your Evolve.

What are the differences in the app experience?

You can use the BlissLights app to power the Sky Lite 2.0 and the BlissHome app to control the Sky Lite Evolve. The WiFi connection between the BlissHome app and the Evolve allows for more in-app features than the Bluetooth® signal behind the BlissLights app.

The new BlissHome app and Evolve bring your surroundings to life through a redesigned interface and additional functionality. You can group several Evolve lights together and control them all with just a few taps on your screen. You can also connect several different BlissLights to the BlissHome app to bring the universe to every corner of your home.

The smart scenes you can set through the BlissHome app take this grouped lighting to the next level. For example, you can add your Sky Lite Evolve, BlissRadia, and BlissEmber to the same smart scene. You could set that scene to turn each fixture blue when the outdoor temperature drops low enough. Your blue stars, nebulas, and mood lighting will instantly cool your surroundings without you stepping outside.

Why you need more than one Evolve

Although one Sky Lite Evolve can immerse every square inch of most spaces, setting up more than one Evolve opens up a world of opportunities. You can group all your Evolve lights into a smart scene to fill your surroundings with an astonishing array of colors. Go for similar colors when you’re looking to take it easy, or create scenes with contrasting hues to inspire your creativity. One Evolve will take you out of this world, and two or more will bring the universe to you.
