Samsung launches LED Bluetooth-controllable lightbulb line

updated 11:48 am EDT, Thu March 27, 2014

Whole-home automation capable with addition of ZigBee hub

Eschewing Wi-Fi connections used by some of its competitors, Samsung has debuted its own Bluetooth-connected LED Smart Bulb. Samsung's entry into device-controllable illumination can be either directly controlled by smartphone app, or be connected through a ZigBee Bluetooth hub for home automation. By installing an application, users can access and control of up to 64 Smart Bulbs with no additional equipment or set up required.

Samsung's Smart Bulb, by utilizing Bluetooth technology, eliminates the need for a bridge and wireless access point. This enables the user to connect and control it directly from a smartphone or tablet.

The Smart Bulb can be dimmed down to 10 percent brightness, and is CCT tunable from 2700K (arm white) to 6500K (cool white). With an expected lifetime of 15,000 hours per Smart Bulb, users will receive approximately 10 years of highly-efficient light, according to Samsung. Pricing and availability are not yet known.
