INSTEON Announces LED Light Bulbs for European Connected Home and Workplace Markets

INSTEON Expands Its Product Line to Meet Demand for Automation Solutions in Europe

IRVINE, Calif.--INSTEON, creators of the world's best-selling home automation and control technology, today introduced four new LED light bulbs - created specifically for the European market - to its product line. INSTEON's modular connected home system, which consists of nearly 200 products, now enables European-based smart home enthusiasts to add energy-conscious lighting to their home and office setups.


The new LED bulbs are designed to accommodate the wider voltage range in Europe and feature the popular bayonet mount version as well as the Edison screw version. The light bulbs are compatible with INSTEON's growing line of connected home products designed for the European market, including the INSTEON hub, dimmer modules, wired and wireless thermostats with humidity sensors, open/close sensors, remotes, switches and more.

"We realized early on that INSTEON fans span the globe and we are always working to bring the connected lifestyle to homes and offices around the world," said Joe Dada, CEO, INSTEON. "Our new European LED light bulbs add to our already substantial product offering in the area, and we look forward to adding more products in the coming months."

The new European LED light bulbs include:

*2672-422 LED Bulb (E27) - 9W Edison Screw Base
*2672-432 LED Bulb (B22) - 9W Bayonet Screw Base
*2674-422 LED Bulb for Recessed Lights (E27) - 12W Edison Screw Base
*2674-432 LED Bulb for Recessed Lights (B22) - 12W Bayonet Screw Base

INSTEON's reliable dual-band technology uses both the existing wires (power line) in the home and radio-frequency (RF) communication instead of relying on spotty Wi-Fi connections and routers, which dictate where smart devices must be placed to work properly. By making every networked device talk to each other via RF and the power line, INSTEON eliminates the need for custom wiring and ensures that every device is always connected. Adding remote control and automation to everything from home monitoring to lighting, INSTEON's dual-mesh network and devices allow users to manage the home or office in more variations than any other home automation technology. INSTEON products can be controlled remotely via apps on iOS and Android devices as well as on a recently introduced app for Microsoft smart phones and tablets.

The LED light bulbs range from £43.99 to £54.99 and can be purchased from Amazon.co.uk. For more information about INSTEON, please visit www.insteon.com.
