Lifx Light Bulbs
LIFX is an innovative LED bulb that is completely different from any bulb you’re likely to have seen before. It was introduced as a crowdfunding Kickstarter project in 2012 by Phil Bosua, the LIFX founder and inventor. Within only 6 days of its introduction, $1.3m in investment had been pledged.
Controllable with any iOS or Android device and a downloadable app, the LIFX bulb uses wifi connectivity for operation. With the easy-to-use app, you can dim the bulb, completely change its colour, or control groups of LIFX bulbs in multiple rooms. All of this is possible without the expense of special wiring, and it makes lighting mood exceptionally easy to create.
Other amazing LIFX features include notifications (Facebook, Twitter, texts, etc.), music visualisation with dynamic colour changing, and remote cloud operation from anywhere in the world. You can also use LIFX as you would a regular bulb, with on/off operation at a wall switch (must be in an ‘on’ position for wireless control).
A LIFX bulb offers the usual excellent energy efficiency of LED lighting as well as remarkable 40,000-hour longevity. Its lifespan is 40 times longer than that of a standard incandescent light bulb! LIFX bulbs have regular screw fit or bayonet caps, for straightforward use with existing lamp-holders.
Despite some competition, LIFX is run by a team of talented developers, engineers, marketers and customer support staff, whose collective aim is to offer the best ‘smart bulb’ product in the industry. Having been praised in respected publications such as The New York Times, Washington Post, and The Economist, LIFX is already at the forefront of 21st century lighting technology.
