GE has unveiled Link, a new connected LED bulb that lets consumers remotely control their home lighting from their iPhone and sync with other connected devices. Link works with the new Wink app by Quirky.
Link is Available in Three Popular Lighting Applications
● 60-watt replacement soft white (2700K) LED bulb, or A19 shape, commonly used for general lighting in table and floor lamps.
● Indoor soft white (2700K) floodlight LED, or BR30 shape, installed as downlighting found in dining room, living room or other entertainment spaces.
● Indoor/outdoor-rated bright white (3000K) spotlight LED, or PAR 38, used for outdoor security or spotlight.
"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."
Running off a connected hub, ZigBee-certified Link LED bulbs help consumers:
● Save money. 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.
● Customize. Ultimate flexibility to create a personal lighting experience by easily adjusting brightness settings through the Wink app to create individual themes and environments.
● Vacation smarter. While away from home for an extended period, consumers can turn specific lights on to give the appearance that someone is home.
