We have introduced several smart bulbs that allow you to control them with smartphones. But if you don’t want to add new bulbs, the following Spark app controlled light bulb socket should be more suitable for you.
The Spark is an innovative light bulb socket designed to convert a normal bulb into an app controlled smart bulb. As we can see from the images, the bulb socket features compact design, and works well with most medium-sized Edison screw bulbs, and the Spark socket screws into any standard light bulb socket, while the built-in WLAN function allows the light bulb on the socket to connect with your WiFi network, moreover, using matching Spark app, you can conveniently control the bulb via your smartphones, tablets, and computers, for instance, turning on the lights before entering a dark house, using bedroom lights as “sunrise” alarm clock and slowing fading to help you wake up naturally, or turning lights on and off while you’re on vacation, and more. After the break, check out the following demo videos.
At present, the inventor of the Spark bulb socket is raising fund on Kickstarter. Pledging $59 will let you own the smart bulb adapter. If you’re interested, jump to Kickstarter official site for more details.
