Emberlight is a clever device that converts any regular dimmable bulb -- including incandescent bulbs, dimmable CFL bulbs and dimmable LED bulbs -- into energy-efficient smart lighting fixtures. To use Emberlight, you simply screw in your regular lightbulb into the Emberlight base, before configuring the WiFi connection to your smartphone. Conveniently, the product doesn't require an additional wireless hub.

Emberlight simply uses a blend of Bluetooth and WiFi which makes it really easy to set up, since your phone will automatically see the bulbs you want to connect to.

Once the device is set up, you can control your lights from your smartphone via an accompanying app. This will allow you to configure 'mood' presets and set up a vacation mode for turning lights on and off when you're away.
