Wyze unveils its maiden colour smart bulb
Smart home company Wyze has launched a new connected light bulb that can change colours. Called Wyze Bulb Color, the new lighting option enables users to change the colour of their home’s lighting to suit their mood, as well as utilizing different colors to serve as visual notifications and reminders.
The Wyze Bulb Color is, as its name suggests, a connected light bulb featuring RBG LEDs. This enables it to produce 16 million different colours, as well as cool and warm white light. Users can control the light using the Wyze app, including creating routines that involve the wider Wyze smart home ecosystem.
The new light bulb product can be dimmed with a minimum output equivalent to 2-watts (30 lumens) and a maximum output equivalent of 75 watts (1,100 lumens). This is brighter than many other color light bulbs on the market, which tend to be too dim for useable light when a color is active.
Smart bulbs are more than simple lights you can turn on and off with your voice or phone, and the Wyze Bulb Color is no exception. Wyze notes that its new color light bulb can be used with various smart modes, including a Vacation Mode for when you’re away from home, schedules, automations, and sleep routines. As well, you can control the bulb using Google Assistant and Alexa.
Other features include an 1800K to 6500K color temperature, 90+ CRI, 12 watts power consumption, support for IFTTT, Energy Star certification, and a life expectancy of 25,000 hours.
