Emberlight is an adapter that makes it possible to convert any regular old lightbulb into a smart lightbulb connected to the Internet of Things. This is far cheaper than buying new smart bulbs.

Emberlight essentially connects to the user's WiFi network to allow them to control their lightbulb remotely from a smartphone, tablet or computer.

To install Emberlight, all you have to do is screw the adapter into a light fitting just as you would a lightbulb. Your bulb then screws into the adapter. The companion Emberlight mobile app then allows you to connect the device to your home WiFi network so you can control it remotely.

Emberlight allows you to manually increase and decrease brightness, set bulbs to fade up and down at certain times and load mood lighting presets. Stats for Internet-Connected Lightbulbs Trending: Older & Average
