Disappearing are the days of single-function gadgets when something like this facial recognition lightbulb appears on the scene. Invented by Sengled, the illuminating object raises the bar with app-controlled abilities, a motion sensor and the capability to determine who is in the room. The implications for domestic convenience and home security are broad and exciting.

The Sengled Snap smart lighting solution was presented at CES 2015, giving users the opportunity to see how a smartphone app can influence lighting conditions and deliver data about the occupancy of a space. Consumers will be able to register their appearances within Snap, and to set up an alert system should someone of an unknown identity enter the room. This facial recognition lightbulb will be able to spotlight burglars and notify you of any intrusions.
