“Bright” is often the term used when someone does something smart. People will have to come up with another complement for users of Sengled’s Element light bulb, a definite “smart” device.
Element provides the energy savings of an LED with more-advanced features like customizable scheduling, color temperature tuning (from soft white 2,700K to daylight-equivalent 6,500K) and energy tracking. Consumers can control bulbs individually or as groups, and schedule the lights to turn on when arriving home from work or turn off during daylight hours for increased savings.
Element uses 80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs—it takes only 9.8 watts for an Element to match an incandescent’s 60-watt output—and one bulb will last approximately 22 years. Features are easily controlled through the iOS/Android app or through popular smart home ecosystem integrations such as Xfinity Home from Comcast, AT&T Digital Life, Samsung SmartThings, Stringify and others.
As a bonus to the environment, Sengled will plant one tree for each Element bulb sold, to offset the product’s carbon footprint (tiny as it may be). This effectively makes Element the world’s first carbon neutral light bulb.
