Misfit, maker of the Shine and Flash fitness tracking devices, has announced a new product, The Bolt – its first “smart light bulb.”
Misfit describes Bolt as ” a wirelessly connected color-changing light bulb that lets users personalize their home lighting.” Misfit points out that its Bolt connected light bulbs won’t require a hub and actually integrate with the company’s existing sleep tracking devices (Shine, Flash, Beddit) to gently wake you up with lighting during light sleep.
The Bolt smart light bulb includes an ability to change between millions of color combinations, includes pre-programmed “scenes,” and also has the ability to change the lightning based on photos you choose.
Misfit notes that the Bolt provides wide-angle lighting, while it’s aluminum base acts as a heat sink to ensure against hot spots.
The Bolt will be controlled by an upcoming “Misfit Home” app, soon to be available on both iOS and Android platforms. The Bolt can also be controlled by Logitech’s Harmony Home remote and app.
The Misfit Bolt is available for pre-order at the Misfit website, and goes for $49.99 per bulb.
