When you think of lighting, probably like everyone of us you admit that you have to manually turn it on and off right? WRONG! Now you can just control your house lighting with a simple touch on your smartphone. How? Check out this contemporary lighting new!
For many people, their first experience into the world of home automation begins with lighting. There’s a good reason for it: smart bulbs easily fit into existing furnishings (which avoids extra costs) and can be operated using just a smartphone (wireless lighting systems) which (mostly) everybody now owns. Philips, is perhaps the most well known smart bulb maker, but that could soon change thanks to a new entrant: IKEA. That’s right, the world’s biggest furniture chain has just launched its own smart lighting range.
The Smart Lighting collection consists of TRÅDFRI LED bulbs and remote control, a gateway kit, a motion sensor kit, dimming lights and a selection of LED light panels and doors that can be built into kitchen and bedroom cabinets.
The gateway kit provides two white LED bulbs, a remote control and a gateway that connects to your router via ethernet. The bulbs are controlled by the TRÅDFRI app, which offers to personalized and user-created warm or cool light. The white spectrum dimming kit, on the other hand, is a lot more analog and requires the use of a handheld control that will change the white color to one of three settings.
There’s also a warm white dimming kit that includes one bulb and a magnetized remote (available in black, white and yellow) that will dim the light between “subtle and strong warm white light” with a simple twist.
With the TRÅDFRI wireless motion sensor kit, when you walk into a room, the light will automatically switch on and remain lit until 1, 5 or 10 minutes have passed. Like all of IKEA’s Smart Lighting products, the sensor itself does not need to be fixed, allowing you to place it in a spot that suits you.
Rounding off the collection is a selection of SURTE, FLOALT and JORMLIEN door and light panels made to offer personalized lighting in one of the most important areas in the house.
