Smart light bulbs can sometimes be expensive, but if you would like to enjoy a smartphone controlled light bulb in your home, using your existing lights and bulbs, a new adapter called Emberlight might be worth more investigation.
Emberlight has been specifically designed to transform your existing lights in to smart lights that you can then control using your iOS or Android smartphones or tablets. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Emberlight project and see it in action.
The adapter can be controller either locally or any where from around the world connecting to your home network.
