If you've wanted to replace all your home's light bulbs with smart connected ones but couldn't justify paying $50 or more per bulb, this Indiegogo campaign may interest you.
Qube claims to be the world's most affordable multi-colored Wi-Fi Smart Light Bulb for your home. They are currently taking early bird pre-orders that promise to get you a Qube bulb by April 2016 for as little as $16 per bulb. The Qube Smart Bulb requires no hub and uses Bluetooth to communicate with your devices.
QUBE SENSE™ tracks your location within your house through your BLE supported mobile phone or any Bluetooth Smart devices that you carry (e.g. Fitbit, Jawbone), and creates room-level accuracy location-based automation triggers when it detects your presence. You can now walk in a room and Qube Sense will know to turn on the lights for you automatically.
The Qube also serve to help you be more environmentally friendly.
Qube™ also helps you Go Green. It tracks your usage patterns and assists with home automation to dim or switch off your lights when it detects that no one is in the house. It can also prompt you to set a schedule to switch off your lights and analyzes your usage patterns to highlight possible energy saving measures to reduce your usage.
Qube™ Smart Bulbs are designed to last up to 50,000 hours or the equivalent of 27 years.
The Qube can also serve notifications from your phone.
Qube™ Notifications customizes your light settings to notify you whenever you receive a message or phone call. The notification can be done by changing the hues in a bulb and/or by a bulb flashing at you.
Not bad for $16 a bulb. Head over to the Indiegogo campaign page and pledge to get yours.
