Earlier this week LG had unveiled its first Smart Bulb, which will flash when you get a phone call. Now another South Korean electronics giant Samsung has announced that it will launch a range of LED lamp solutions at Light + Building 2014, trade fair for architecture and technology, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany from 30 March to 4 April 2014.
According to Samsung, the new models are a lighter and more efficient PAR-series, lamps with a swivel-head PAR, a decorative classic design LED lamp, and an L-tube series with ECG and CCG compatibility. The new range has been designed for both the B2B and B2C markets.
The Smart Bulb :
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi controllable LED lighting, the Smart Bulb utilizes Bluetooth technology which eliminates the need for a bridge and wireless AP, enabling the user to connect and control it directly from a smartphone or tablet PC. By installing an application, users can access and control of up to 64 Smart Bulbs with no additional equipment or set up required.
The Smart Bulb can be dimmed down to 10% brightness and is CCT tunable from 2700K (arm white) to 6500K (cool white). With a lifetime of 15,000 hours per Smart Bulb, users will receive approximately 10 years of highly-efficient light. B2B customers can deploy the Zigbee Smart Bulb that allows lighting to be controlled from anywhere and from smart devices such as a smartphone and tablet PC.
The Lightweight PAR :
Samsung’s PAR-series delivers quality lighting without straining already existing fixtures thanks to its lightweight structure. With a high CRI of over 90 the PAR-series is suited for professional interior and color-critical applications.
Samsung’s latest LED Classic Lamp:
It delivers a warm and inviting environment that reminds people of incandescent lighting. Surrounded by a clear and transparent outer shell, it is compatible with conventional ballast, the Samsung L-tube series is well-suited for internal areas and can be easily installed without re-wiring of fixtures. Installation cost remains low due to its ECG/CCG compatibility.
