BeON Home has released a new smart bulb that's a little bit smarter than the rest. It's not just another fancy Bluetooth LED bulb that lets you change bulb colors from your smartphone to impress your friends. The new BeON Home bulb even looks different, in its center you find a removable module that offers the unique features the BeON Bulb offers.
A lot of these smarts are a security feature to make it look like you're home even when you're not. First, it can memorize your lighting schedule and replicate it even when you're not home. It's a neat little convenience feature that you can use to deter burglars, or just have the lights turn on for you when you get home late at night. Secondly, it can respond to sounds such as the doorbell, and activate your bulbs in sequence to make it look like someone is moving about the house.
There are also convenience and safety features for when you're actually home. While listening for the doorbell to ring, the BeHome can also recognize your fire or carbon monoxide alarm going off, and will turn the lights on for you. Perhaps the best feature about these bulbs is their ability to work even when the power is out. The smart module inside each bulb contains a battery that will last for up to 4 hours on a single charge and can provide light even when your power goes out.
Unfortunately, this kind of latest technology won't come cheap, BeON sells a smart home starter kit for $199. The starter kit includes three smart bulbs and modules while each additional bulb will be $75.
The BeON Home Protection System is now available at www.beonhome.com and through select security dealers. The BeON system is $199.00 and comes with three smart modules and three LED light bulbs as well as the free mobile app. Additional BeON bulbs and modules are available for $75.00 each and can be easily added to the system for larger homes and more protection. The mobile app is currently available for iOS and will soon be made available for Android™.
BeON's LED bulbs provide 800 lumens (60 watt equivalent) of soft, warm lighting that lasts more than 22 years. The bulbs are 75 percent more efficient than incandescent bulbs and available in standard and recessed BR30 styles.
