Well here’s something I never thought I’d be posting about, a Bluetooth enabled light bulb. Yes I said light bulb. They’re not actually selling them yet though it seems, it’s an indiegogo project, like Kickstarter basically and they’ve only reached less than $3,000 of their goal which is $65,000 and they’ve only got 16 days to go. Do we really need to be able to control our light bulbs with our phones? Personally I don’t think so, but hey, who am I to judge anyway ?!
Smart Home Labs introduces the RoboSmart wireless LED lighting system that enables smart lighting control via your smartphone, tablet or computer over Bluetooth Smart wireless. The wireless LED light bulb is available for pre-orders on the world’s largest open-funding platform IndieGoGo.
RoboSmart Light BulbTM is an energy efficient Bluetooth Smart enabled LED light bulb, which can be simply controlled from any Bluetooth Smart enabled Mobile device, with customizable apps for both iOS and Android.
The unique combination of energy efficient LED design and Bluetooth communications allows anyone the freedom to fully customize control of their home lighting, not previously possible with standard LED bulbs.
Harnessing the company’s RoboSmartTM technology allows for total control over the brightness, timer functionality and proximity modes. The key to this unique control is the marriage of smart electronics within the LED light bulb.
Every RoboSmart Light Bulb utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth 4.0) as the wireless connection to the on board processor, real time clocks and memory.
Installing the RoboSmart Light Bulb is as easy as screwing in a light bulb and installing the Smart Lights App on your smartphone.
The control of the RoboSmart Light Bulb can be as easy as programming a timer and letting the processor do the rest (leave it and forget it) for fully automatic time based on and off times, scene lighting and proximity detection.
Each mode lends the RoboSmart Light Bulb to multiple locations within your home. Control options can be enabled, such as having your lights slowly turn off after departing the garage, to unique proximity lighting where the Smart Lights App can tell when you’re near-by and turn on and off one or more RoboSmart Light Bulb as you move within range, a typical scenario for your porch or driveway light. Users can utilize their standard light switches to turn on the RoboSmart Light Bulb with a pre-set brightness settings. The RoboSmart Light Bulb can also be controlled from multiple Bluetooth enabled smartphones, providing custom features to each user.
The highly energy efficient Robolight easily pays for itself many times over in energy savings, looks just like a traditional incandescent bulb, provides high power LED illumination, along with the flexibility of wireless home automation from your smart phone.
