Ilumi’s BR30 is one smart lightbulb for the modern home

ilumiAh, just about everything needs to come with the smart prefix these days, in order to make sure that they end up as worthy of being paraded on store shelves. While I understand that lighting does require a certain degree of energy savings, how smart can a bulb get apart from being able to be remotely controlled from afar via an app? Well, it seems that ilumi is back this time around after their outing last year, where the company has taken CES 2016 as the platform to reveal the power of outdoor and indoor lighting via ilumi’s very own BR30 Outdoor.

ilumi would want one to experience better living via better lighting with the BR30 Outdoor as well as ilumi’s collection of connected smartbulbs. A clear market leader in connected and smart lighting products, ilumi is certainly stoked to see its BR30 Outdoor bring the wonder of connected bulbs to the outdoors. It has so far received nothing but rave reviews, being notorious for its bright, smart and simple smartbulbs, and will be similar to ilumi’s first and second generation bulbs. The BR30 Outdoor itself can be controlled via ilumi’s intuitive iOS and Android application which will boast of a handful of features which help to improve sleep, complement moods and enhance a user’s lifestyle.

The BR30 Outdoor is IP64 rated, and comes across as a flood smartbulb that has been specially designed to illuminate and create the perfect atmosphere in any outdoor area of a home, such as a porch, patio, outdoor deck or pool house, regardless of whether it is raining or the sun is out in full force. The color-tunable smartbulbs can be set to millions of different colors under the rainbow, and offers best in class lighting brightness, efficiency, & color quality thanks to the patented HyperLux LED technology that is applied for any shade of white to rich vibrant colors. The BR30 Outdoor will be available for pre-order some time in the first quarter of this year for $69.99 a pop with shipping set to commence this March.
