Feit HomeBrite Hits Shelves
Our customer, Feit Electric, is now shipping their new line of HomeBrite smart bulbs. They are available now at most Home Depot stores with more stores coming soon. CNET was really digging them when they got a preview back in May. Unlike other solutions, these bulbs create a mesh network over Bluetooth LE, meaning they can be controlled directly from your phone with no hub, Internet, or WiFi required. They range in price from $15 for a standard bulb to $35 for an in-ceiling retrofit kit.
My favorite feature is the ability to set multiple schedules inside of each bulb. These schedules run directly on the bulbs, so they keep on going whether your phone is around or not. It's also really great to group them into dynamic scenes; giving one-touch control to set the mood for a dinner party or to light up the house when you arrive home.
