GE Debuts Link Connected Bulb
GE has announced the arrival of an affordable connected light bulb, the Link. The Link, which is controlled by the company’s Wink app, retails for under $15.
The Link concept applies to three form factors- a 60-watt replacement soft white LED bulb, an indoor soft white floodlight LED and an indoor/outdoor-rated bright white spotlight bulb.
“Our very own Thomas Edison built the first commercially viable bulb, and today we’re proud to announce the first commercially viable connected bulb designed for Wink users,” John Strainic, General Manager, North America Consumer Lighting for GE, said as part of the announcement.. “We know the quality of light consumers love and want in their homes, and we’re a brand they trust.”
The bulbs are available now via preorder from Home Depot.
