GE Unveils New Link Connected LED Bulbs

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.

Pricing and Availability:
Starting below $15, the Link connected LED will be available at www.homedepot.com. Consumers can find Link in The Home Depot stores beginning this fall. A Starter Kit with a gateway hub and two LED bulbs is available for $49.97 from the link below.

What diff does it make if you leave a bulb that hardly uses any electric power on or not unless there's like 100 of them? The additional savings on your electric bill would be very tiny for a few such bulbs. Bigger impact on the bill would be a more efficient refrigerator, washer/dryer, or air conditioner. As for environmental concerns, the Earth is toast, and there's no hope for it. So only motivation I can see relates to here and now issue of the electric bill.

That's why solar panels are nowadays the answer. Sun will be the source so bills will be cheap, only problem is a way to save up for it, even better yet, kites to attract lightning and windmills, combine all this together, bam, no money gobbling bill forever along with efficient earth, a 3-in-1 problem solver.
