Sengled Snap LED Light Bulb Now Available Through Bulbs.com
Smart lighting manufacturer Sengled displayed a number of innovative products at its booth in the Sands Expo during CES 2016 earlier this month. Among them was the Sengled Snap LED bulb, which combines a wireless HD camera for outdoor monitoring with an energy-efficient LED light bulb. That product, the company said in a statement released last week, is now available through Bulbs.com—the largest online distributor of lighting products.
The Sengled Snap LED was the recipient of one of the CES Best of Innovation awards during the 2015 show in the smart home category. Sengled said that home or business owners can benefit from the product by placing it over entryways and garages to “keep an eye on surroundings any time of day or night.” The bulb comes with an ultra-wide angle HD camera that captures high-quality video that can be viewed instantly on an iOS or Android device. There is also the option to store the data recorded through the camera in the cloud for an additional fee, Sengled explained.
Sengled cited data that said a burglary takes place every 14 seconds in the U.S. and 56 percent of break-ins happen at the front or back doors. Accordingly, Sengled said, 90 percent of consumers say that security is one of the top reasons that they decide to purchase a smart home system. Further, 70 percent of consumers say that they are “excited about the potential cost savings from energy efficiency and monitoring.
