LG introduces Smart Lamp that communicates with your Android


Just like Phillips, LG is also planning to release its first ever smart light bulb as well, and it will be known as LG Smart Lamp; I am sure Edison will be proud of LG right now. LG didn’t tell us when they will start shipping it, but we know that it will retail for $32/35,000 Korean won, which is really affordable compared to Phillips Hue. About the bulb, it is is a low-voltage bulb that is said to be 80% power efficient than typical incandescent bulbs.

Now lets talk about the best thing of the LG Smart Lamp. The bulb is compatible with Android, which means you can control the functions of the lamp with the help of an app on your smartphone. The app works with devices Android 4.3 and above, and it will connect with your device via Bluetooth connection. LG claims that the lamp will work for 10 years based on a usage estimate of five hours per day.

And about some of the functions of the lamp; you can control the brightness of the light with your smartphone, there’s  a “security mode” that will let you schedule the smart lights to turn on and off at specific times, plus it will start flashing when you are getting a call on your smartphone.
