Everyone has been in the situation of getting into bed at night and wondering whether they remembered to switch all of the house lights off to save sky-high electricity bills, and so it was only a matter of time before technology experts from around the world developed a way to combat this without leaving the comfort of a warm bed. Launched this week, a brand new LED light bulb boasts the ability of being controlled by a smartphone with a special app. When screwed into a fixture, the bulb’s unique network address is detected by any smartphones in the area with the correct app installed, and can be switched on and off at the touch of a screen. Not only are these bulbs incredibly advanced, they are also a viable way to make a home or business environmentally friendly, as the LED bulb is one of the best ways to cut a carbon footprint.
BLT Direct is a premier UK provider of technologically-advanced lighting solutions for both commercial and domestic situations, and whilst the smartphone-controlled technology will not hit the market for a few months, there is no time like the present to stock up on LED light bulbs, which will boast a lifetime’s worth of illumination. The developments which have led to the development of the smartphone bulb have also created some of the most energy-efficient bulbs ever made in the form of LEDs, and with the low prices and high estimated savings, there is no time like the present to make the switch to LEDs.
The LED GU10 5-Watt Warm White Bulb is a prime example of the LED bulb eliminating wasteful heat energy and saving money on energy consumption. The GU10 range of light bulbs are considered to be one of the most viable alternatives to the traditional halogen light bulbs, which are slowly being phased out, and many homes and businesses have already converted to these highly efficient replacements. With a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours and a range of inviting shades such as ‘warm white’ and ‘daylight’, the bulbs can integrate seamlessly in any business or home and provide cosy illumination for years to come.
GLS bulbs are also a popular way to create soft and subtle lighting whilst saving energy, especially with their LED models. The LED GLS 6-Watt Warm White Bulb has an Edison Screw base, which is compatible with a large range of existing fittings and fixtures, while the approximate savings per bulb add up to a huge £194.40, based on average electricity charges. No matter whether it’s controlled by a smartphone or not, this bulb is super-efficient in both cost and carbon consumption, and is a superb choice for any conscious savers.
