Emberlight provides wireless smarts to regular bulbs

There’s been a boom of wireless-enabled smart bulbs over the past year or so. Although many will recognize popular models such as LIFX and Philips Hue, you can search Amazon and find plenty of options for Bluetooth wireless light bulbs. Some of them even have built-in speakers so you can remotely control both lights and sound.   But what about all of those old, non-smart bulbs you own? It feels like a shame to let them go to waste, especially if they happen to be favorites. Or, maybe you don’t want to buy a smart bulb due to fear of it breaking or burning out too soon, costing so much more in the long-run.   Discard those worries, since there exists a third option that brings the best of both worlds. Emberlight provides wireless features dimmable light bulbs. This compact device installs into sockets and acts like a middleman to the bulb screwed into it. Now, the light can be controlled from wall switches or remotely from a mobile device. You can even set it to turn on/off based on Bluetooth proximity from your smartphone.   Emberlight works with your existing wireless network, without the need of a hub. Once set up, you’d really never have to touch a lightswitch again. Whether you’re in or out of the home, you can receive notifications and have full control over every connected light bulb. Want the lights to turn on as soon as you come home? Done. Away on vacation and need the lights on at night to provide that lived-in look? Absolutely possible. Control any and lights that are hooked up to Emberlight.   Since Emberlight is more of an adapter and not a light bulb, there’s little worry about it burning out over time. When a bulb is bad, just replace it with a new one and Emberlight keeps working for you. Best of all, it costs the same or less than many smart light bulbs available on the market.
