LG’s Smart Light Bulb Talks To Your Smartphone

LG is developing smart lighting solutions. Its first release to that effect is an LED smart light bulb, and it actually sounds like a somewhat compelling product instead of some eyeroll-inducing googah for the geek elite.

The bulbs come packing Bluetooth and WiFi technology and works with devices running Android 4.3 and higher as well iOS 6.0 and newer. There are several simple but attractive features such as the ability to switch to soft lighting, generally adjust the light’s brightness, and having the light slowly come on and gently wake you in the morning instead of relying on a loud alarm clock.

There’s also a party mode wherein the light bulb will flash in time to the music, and a security mode will turn your lights on or off with a timer. For the hearing impaired, you can set up the lights to flicker when you have an incoming call on your phone.

Further, LG says that the smart lighting is quite energy efficient and can last more than 10 years even if turned on for five hours a day.

Oh I've always wanted my phone to be able to do this! I know that there are other ways I could have made it happen but this is awesome

interesting.. I saw this exact lightbulb (with those features.. including party mode) a few years ago being made by a small company. I wonder if they bought the tech?  very cool

So very use to the chickens crow and the alarm ringing though I believe this could work if I managed to make the room really dark it all depends how strong the light source...though I do like the light and the music sync together for a phenomenal experience ^^

cool its like a clappy light but now you can turn off the light from your phone. Example: if you leave your kids home alone then you can turn off the lights to say go to sleep so very useful to parents. :D

I've seen these type of light bulbs pop up a few places now. However until they can produce most of the common types of light bulbs, I don't see the point in using it only in a few places. There a are a lot of places in my house that use the candle type light bulbs for chandlers. But I know this is a great first step, I just look forward to the day where I will be able to turn off all the lights in my house with a click of a button. Right now I can't do that until they add more variety.
