What is Smart Lighting?

The Future is Bright

A connected 60W LED bulb is the simplest way to get totally customized, cost-effective lighting in your home. Compatible with multiple smart-home systems and both iOS and Android devices, it puts the power in your hands and on your schedule. So you can get on with your day.

With the Cree Connected LED bulb, you can easily dim or brighten your lights to any setting, schedule lights to come on at a specific time each day, or turn the lights on for added security while you're away from home.

What are some features of a smart bulb?

Whether you're on the go or on the couch, the Cree Connected LED gives you full control over your home lighting systems with the added convenience of remote capability, making it easier than ever to keep your favourite place in the best light.

With Cree Connected LED bulbs, you can:

  • Adjust the light levels of your entire home from your smart device.
  • Program your lights to turn on and off at specific times each day.
  • Turn the lights on for added security while you're away.

It's super well-connected

The Cree Connected LED bulb works by using your home Wi-Fi network to pair with a compatible smart hub. Once the bulb and hub are installed, they can be synced with a mobile app to control your home lighting preferences from anywhere. What makes the Cree Connected LED bulb so outstanding is its compatibility—it works well with major smart hubs like Wink and SmartThings, as well as the popular Amazon Echo, which includes a voice-command feature that allows you to operate other devices simultaneously.

Did we mention it's smart?

With such advanced technology packed into a clean design, it's easy to see why the Cree Connected LED bulb was last year's CNET Editor's Choice winner for automated lighting.

  • Easily pairs with both Android and iOS smart devices.
  • Compatible with an array of smart hubs, including Wink, ZigBee, SmartThings, WeMo and Amazon Echo.
  • Simple, straightforward setup has you up and running in minutes.
  • Controls all of your home's light settings with a single app.

The best bulb for your buck

Available at Home Depot and Amazon.ca, the Cree Connected LED bulb is designed with environmental efficiency in mind. Using less energy on lighting means saving more money on your power bill—up to $127 over the bulb's lifetime. Smart made easy.
