Cree launches Connected LED Bulb, compatible with Wink and ZigBee certified hubs

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced the Connected Cree LED Bulb, a smart LED bulb that delivers multi-platform compatibility.

Available in a 60-watt replacement option delivering 815 lumens in a soft-white (2700K) color temperature, the new bulb is compatible with Wink and ZigBee-certified hubs. These allow consumers to control the bulb from anywhere by simply installing the bulb and compatible hub, syncing the devices and customizing the settings using an iOS or Android smartphone (in order to dim or brighten the lights to the desired setting, schedule lights to come on at the start of each day, or turn lights on while away for added security).

The Connected Cree LED Bulb is also designed for compatibility with future Cree-supported hubs and platforms such as the Apple HomeKit platform as consumers adopt new platforms for home connectivity.

Just like the Cree LED Bulb, the Connected Cree LED Bulb emits a warm, omnidirectional light due to its 4Flow Filament Design. This creates a compact, optically balanced light source inside a durable, shatter-proof housing.

Backed by a three-year warranty, the Connected Cree LED Bulb consumes 81% less energy (based on Cree LED Bulb 60-watt replacements at 11.5-watt, $0.11 per kilowatt-hour, 25,000-hour lifetime and average usage of three hours per day), has a rated lifetime of 25,000 hours, and is dimmable via smartphone app.

Consumers can purchase the Connected Cree LED Bulb before the end of January both online and in The Home Depot stores (for $14.97, which the firm reckons will drive adoption by consumers).
