Lumenplay Smart String Lighting: 16 Million Reasons to Leave the Christmas Lights Hanging
July 19th, 2013
Rigado LLC multiplies the appeal of smart LED bulbs with Lumenplay, a modular LED Christmas light set. Like LIFX and Philips HUE, you control Lumenplay using your smartphone – in this case, via a Bluetooth connection. Pick from 16 million lighting colors and a variety of effects and even synchronize the bulbs to music.
The basic Lumenplay kit comes in two variants: a 10′ strand with 15 bulbs or a 20′ strand that has 30 bulbs. You can then purchase more as needed and connect the strands up to 340′. The bulbs have a lifespan of about 20,000 hours – that’s about 2 years and 3 months – and you can replace their bulb covers.
The downside? Unlike other smart LED bulbs, its mobile app doesn’t seem to have a timer feature. Lumenplay is also quite expensive, but at this point all LED bulbs are pricey. Pledge at least $54 (USD) on Crowd Supply to get a Lumenplay set as a reward.
