Hot on the heels of a similar announcement from LG a few days ago, Samsung has just unveiled a new line of smart LED light bulbs that will launch next week at the Light + Building 2013 trade show in Frankfurt, Germany. The range of bulbs will include options for both consumers and businesses alike, and will come with wireless connectivity built in.
Much like other bulbs, Samsung’s Smart Bulb is designed to fit into traditional light sockets, and will be controllable via a companion app for smartphones and tablets. In addition to brightness controls, the color temperature of the bulbs will also be adjustable, with output ranging from 2700K to 6500K for warm or cool white colors. In terms of lifespan, Samsung says the bulbs should last around 15,000 hours, which equates to roughly ten years.
