LIFX: The First And Last Lightbulb You’ll Ever Want [video]

Meet LIFX, the smartest light bulb we’ve ever seen. With its wifi functionality and multi-coloured bulb it allows you to control all lighting in your home as well as adding the ability to induce any mood desired, from the comfort of your sofa. Simply insert your new bulb, download the free app and you’re ready to go.

LIFX gives you unprecedented control of your lights, reduces your energy costs, lasts up to 25 years and is controlled through the iPhone app which will be available download on the AppStore for free.

The features don’t stop there though. You can also set specific times so the mood is set when you come home or off for when you leave for work in the morning. The ‘Sleep’ function dims the light in tune with sunrise and sunset, allowing you to drift off peacefully or wake up softly.

All three main bulb types are supported – Bayonet cap, Edison Screw and Downlight – with a fairly reasonable price tag of only $69 (approx £45) per bulb.

For me the longevity of the bulb as well as the fuctionality added to your home is fantastic and most definitely a no-brainer.
