  • PDF

Sylvania smart bulbLighting vendor Ledvance presents the Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19-- a HomeKit-enabled smart bulb customers can control via Siri or Home app, without need for a separate hub controller.

Installation promises to be very easy, since one simply needs to screw the bulb in place before syncing with HomeKit. The bulb works when users are both inside or outside the home, with a connected Apple TV or iOS 10-enabled iPad acting as a hub for remote control. Customers can combine the Sylvania smart bulbs with other HomeKit-enabled devices to create custom scenes through the Home app, such as an "I'm on my way home" command activating lights, unlocking the door and turning on the thermostat.

“For more than a century, consumers have looked to the brand Sylvania for innovation, and this announcement represents another exciting advancement," the company says. "By working with Apple to provide smart lighting that works directly with the Home app, we’re making it easier for Apple enthusiasts to seamlessly integrate quality lighting into their smart home, bringing convenience and simplicity to their daily lives.”
