WeMo and OSRAM SYLVANIA announced the availability of three new lighting starter sets featuring WeMo-enabled OSRAM LIGHTIFY LED products. Designed to provide a fun, easy entry point to smart lighting, each WeMo LIGHTIFY bundle includes a WeMo Link ZigBee-to-Wi-Fi bridge and a single combination of LIGHTIFY products including the Gardenspot Mini RGB, the Flex RGBW, and the Tunable White A19 LED bulb.
“The new WeMo + OSRAM LIGHTIFY starter sets expand the variety of lighting options for WeMo users with approachable and decorative smart lighting solutions for the whole home – from the kitchen to the backyard,” said Peter Taylor, director of product management for WeMo. “With a wide range of features, including full red, green, blue color spectrum and color temperature support and IFTTT compatibility, the LIGHTIFY sets are the first WeMo-enabled partner products to ship with a WeMo Link included, opening up the WeMo ecosystem to a whole new group of connected consumers.”
First announced at the 2015 International CES, the WeMo-enabled LIGHTIFY bulbs bring enhanced lighting options for current WeMo users and connect OSRAM LIGHTIFY users to WeMo’s growing line of home automation products including smart switches, cameras, appliances and sensors. The bundled LIGHTIFY products will work with the included WeMo Link and the WeMo app, allowing users to control them from anywhere with a smart device. Through the WeMo app, users can change colors and color temperature, schedule lights to come on or off at a certain time or at Sunrise or Sunset, control lights individually or in groups, control brightness, or set a sleep fader to gradually fade to dark.
Using the WeMo app and Link, the LIGHTIFY products will also work with IFTTT to create special lighting recipes and interact with other Internet services and apps. Through IFTTT, users can have outdoor lights change to their favorite team’s colors at game time, or automatically turn on the lights inside when it starts raining outside.
