Smartphone controllable light bulbs aren’t exactly new. In fact, you don’t need to look any further than the Philips HUE or the LIFX – the latter appeared on Kickstarter and netted over $1 million in funding. But neither are an economical choice costing any where from $69 to a few hundred dollars.
Enter the budget friendly Robosmart Wireless Smart LED Bulb. At 40 watts it’s not exactly blowing up your spot, but seeing as they’re just $38 each, and controllable via a smartphone, why the hell not. Moreover, each bulb can be dimmed independent of the fixture or the switch, and each one should last for up to 10 years.
So how do you connect to the Robosmart bulb? Not via WiFi. The Robosmart works over Bluetooth 4.0 and provided you’ve got an Android or iOS device, you’re in business.
A pack of 4 costs $164, though they’re currently out of stock.
