Lightbulbs controllable via smartphone are by no means new, but more companies continue to jump on the home automation bandwagon. Case in point? LG launched the Smart Bulb in Korea over the weekend, a 100W LED bulb that pairs with your iOS or Android device over wireless or Bluetooth to perform a variety of functions.
Phones connected to the lightbulb can obviously control the lighting, but can also schedule the light to turn on and off at certain hours of the day. The bulb can also flash when you receive a notification on your smartphone, or pulsate to music on your Android handset.
The LG Smart Bulb retails for 35,000 won in Korea, which is equivalent to $32. No word on US availability.
