Fact: I like things I can control directly from my iPhone. A lot.
A new Kickstarter called Emberlight brings this functionality as close as the nearest light bulb. Offering support for presets, smartphone dimmer controls and even Bluetooth proximity awareness – not unlike the Honeywell air purifier I reviewed last month – it’s an impressive smart-lighting solution that functions independently of a dedicated hub, relying simply on your home’s pre-existing Wi-Fi network.
With less than two weeks remaining, the Emberlight campaign has already amassed a staggering four times its original goal amount with the help of nearly 2,000 backers. If you’re looking for an easy, energy-efficient way to jump into the exciting realm of smart home devices, you might consider joining them.
