After decades of advancement, smart homes are closer to becoming a reality. Instead of buying a pre-packaged smart home though, you can upgrade your home piecemeal. We’ve seen smart thermostats, smart smoke alarms, and even smart lightbulbs. Today, we’re happy to announce one of the most capable smart lightbulbs ever made: the MiPow Playbulb.

This clever lightbulb connects to your phone or tablet using Bluetooth. Start up the Android or iOS app on your device, and you’ll be able to control the intensity of the light emitted – so you can turn it down low for a romantic evening or keep it lit for a working night. The bulb can also be set to automatically dim or turn off, saving power and automatically keeping up with your routine. And with the power of Bluetooth, you can make these changes from anywhere in the room.

But where this lightbulb gets crazy is its speaker system. Yeah, that’s right: this lightbulb plays music. Just connect via Bluetooth, and you can stream music, podcasts or any other audio you like. The speaker inside is surprisingly loud, and provides a nice ambient experience where music is playing without an obvious source.

For all its capabilities though, the MiPower Playbulb is as easy to install as any normal lightbulb; just screw it into your light socket as normal. If you have a bayonet fitting, you’ll be able to use an adapter to make it work too.

The MiPow Playbulb is available now at Mobile Fun. For the latest pricing and availability information, as well as additional details and photos, check out the product page linked below!

Samsung Smart Bulb

Saturday, March 29th, 2014

Samsung Smart Bulb

Everything is smart these days. Smart phones, smart homes, smart cars. This week, Samsung unveiled another ‘smart’ thing: a smart LED light bulb, called simply Smart Bulb.

The idea behind the smart bulb is that this is a light bulb that can be controlled from an app on your phone or tablet. A connection to up to 64 bulbs is made via Bluetooth, and then you’re able to control these individually or en masse. Most previous smart bulbs have required a Wi-Fi connection with a router in the middle; using Bluetooth is simpler and cheaper.

The bulb is able to dim to 10% brightness, and can provide light from a warm 2700K to a cool 6500K. Each bulb has a life expectancy of 15,000 hours, or about 10 years.

It’s also possible to automate the control of the bulbs using a third-party ZigBee Bluetooth hub, allowing automatic turning on and off of lights to match your schedule or to make your home appear occupied while you’re out, deterring would-be thieves.

The Samsung Smart Bulb is expected to cost around $30 (£18), although final UK pricing is yet to be confirmed. That means it’s quite possible to outfit a room or an entire house without incredible expense.
