Large ilumi LED Smartbulb
Some may remember the ilumi LED Smartbulb we featured a few months ago that could light a room in any of 16 million colors and included a host of features. Now you can get that same bulb in a larger size.
Introducing the large ilumi LED Smartbulb. It has the same features as its little brother. Just pair it to your smartphone via a Bluetooth 4.0 connection to control it with the free downloadable app. Set your ilumi to strobe with the beat of the music, set it to turn on automatically when you are away, or use it as a wake-up light. Best of all, the ilumi is 5 times more energy efficient than a regular incandescent bulb and it lasts for up to 20 years!
The ilumi isn’t just a fun purchase, but a smart one too. Get your large sized ilumi LED Smartbulb for $89 with free US shipping at Cult of Mac Deals for a limited time. Also available, the small ilumi LED Smartbulb for just $79 with free shipping. Same great features in a more compact package.
