iLuv has released a WiFI enabled, HomeKit compatible smart bulb which is due in stock at Ubertec soon.
The bulb is called the Rainbow8 and is an sequel to the Rainbow7, a bluetooth-enabled smart bulb that you could control with an app.
This one improves on this by adding to the HomeKit family, which you will find other smart bulbs such as Phillips Hue work with. It has the full colour spectrum and best of all - it requires no bridge. Unlike Hue, which requires a $99 bridge to work with the bulbs, each bulb connects to WiFi, which means they are ready to go out of the box.
We’ve been playing around with test units and they work amazingly well. It’s so fun changing the colour of a room in a second with just your control centre, or asking Siri to change the colour with a single tap. It really feels like the future is here.
These are selling for $69 with a special promotion price for 2 or more bulbs. Please ask our sales assistants for more information on this deal.
We expect these to be in stock at Ubertec in the next 1-2 weeks.
