Greenwave Wi-Fi Controlled LED Light Bulbs: Screw & Play

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 26, 2012


LED light bulbs are becoming more common and affordable, but a company called Greenwave Reality made the energy-saving light source even cooler. The company’s Connected Lighting Solution is a kit that includes LED bulbs that can be controlled via a mobile app. It’s one more reason to keep your phone out of your kids’ hands.

While not nearly as cool and showy as LIFX wi-fi lighting, the Greenwave kit is all about convenience and energy savings for consumers.  You only need to screw in the bulbs to existing sockets and then plug in the adapter to your router. No complicated setup is necessary. You can then toggle or dim many bulbs at once using the remote control or the mobile app. No more fumbling for light switches in the dark (although you can still use the switches if you want to).

But it’s also a boon for electric companies. Aside from being cheaper than conventional light bulbs, the kit can keep track of their electricity consumption and other usage information. Which is why Greenwave Reality will sell the kit to the companies, and not to end users. Before you complain, know that each kit costs $200 (USD), and only includes 4 bulbs. The plan is for electric companies to buy the kit from Greenwave Reality and then sell them to consumers at a subsidized cost. Everybody wins. Except the old light bulb, that is.
