GE all set to LINK smartphones with LED Bulbs at home

By : |June 30, 2014 0

EAST CLEVELAND, USA: GE has unveiled Link, what it calls, a connected LED bulb that lets consumers remotely control their home lighting from anywhere in the world and sync with other connected devices.

Enabled by the new Wink app, Link eliminates the need for expensive add-ons typically associated with connected devices, making it an easy and cost-effective way for consumers to light up their smart homes, it explained in the announcement.

“Our very own Thomas Edison built the first commercially viable bulb, and today we’re proud to announce the first commercially viable connected bulb designed for Wink users,” says John Strainic, General Manager, North America Consumer Lighting for GE. “We know the quality of light consumers love and want in their homes, and we’re a brand they trust.”

Initial education of the benefits to a smart home will be key for driving adoption. The company further explained that “Running off a connected hub, ZigBee-certified Link LED bulbs help consumers to save money and customise. If you’re gone for the day and realize the kids left the lights on upstairs, now you simply switch off the lights from your smartphone, helping save money on your monthly energy bill. It will give ultimate flexibility to create a personal lighting experience by easily adjusting brightness settings through the Wink app to create individual themes and environments. While away from home for an extended period, consumers can turn specific lights on to give the appearance that someone is home.”
