As humans get lazier, smartphones control more of our lives. Take smart light bulbs for instance. They allow users to control their lights remotely as well as apply different moods to the lighting. Want something romantic? Just use your smartphone and an app.
General Electric has a new smart LED bulb called Link. Link smart bulbs are controllable via the Wink app and you can even control it remotely anywhere around the world. You could be vacationing in France and turn your lights on and off in the U.S.
Or if you forget to turn your lights off before leaving home, you can do it without driving back. You could also turn your lights on for a few hours a day so burglars think someone is home. This app and smart light bulb are very useful. The Link bulb will be priced starting at $15 each, which is very affordable. It will come in three versions: a 60-watt replacement soft white LED bulb for general lighting; indoor soft white which can be installed as downlighting; and an indoor/outdoor bright white spotlight LED which can be used for outdoor security or as a spotlight. It will go on sale on Home Depot’s website starting Monday, and hit their brick and mortar stores later this fall.
