With emberlight any light bulb is now a smart bulb.
Turn any bulb into a wi-fi controlled smart light with emberlight socket. Just screw in a bulb - that's it. No complex wireless hub to install and configure.
Keep your style Use your existing bulbs. Full brightness control of any mix of incandescent (max. 40W) and dimmable CFL or LED bulbs
Set the mood A single tap creates any mood with pre-set light levels. Set the mood by dimming a group of sockets with a single touch.
Simplicity No hub, no wires, no starter pack. We use a combination of WiFi and Bluetooth LE to make the setup process very simple. You can setup all of your emberlight Sockets on your WiFi network at the same time in less than a minute.
Security Connected devices are either simple or secure. It's rare that you can find a product that has both. We've got experts on our team that have found a way to achieve simplicity at a high level of security.
Availability Connected devices are either very responsive, or they offer remote access via the internet. We wanted both, so we incorporated Bluetooth LE and WiFi. When you are nearby the Socket will detect that and "fall forward" to Bluetooth for control directly from your phone. When you walk away, it will "fall back" to WiFi to allow access from anywhere in the world via the internet.
