LIFX, the Wi-Fi enabled, multi-colour, energy efficient LED lamp that can be controlled with a smartphone, has won ‘Gold’ in the ‘Smart Systems’ category at this year’s prestigious Edison Awards.
LIFX distributed by Sylvania stands to change the way people interact with their lighting.
Being recognised with an Edison Award is testament to LIFX’s innovation and business success, showing the brand has come a long way from its humble Kickstarter beginnings. The hotly contested ‘Smart Systems’ category honours excellence in new products, which have a human-centered design and demonstrate intelligent innovation.
LIFX distributed by Sylvania offers users an astonishing 16 million colours at their fingertips and allows a variety of different scenes to be set to suit moods and tasks. Using a free App in iOS and Android versions, users can control the colour, brightness and dimming levels of their LIFX lamps. New features of the app are being added all the time, the new Music Visualiser enables the lights to interact with music being played and soon the LIFX app will enable a host of features including alarm linked automatic control and using LIFX Cloud, the LIFX lamos will be controllable changed from anywhere in the world.
“We offer our congratulations to LIFX on its recent Edison Award win,” comments Christian Schraft, President of Havells Sylvania Europe. “As with Organic Response’s recent LDA 2014 and Red Dot award wins, it’s fantastic to see our distribution partners going from strength to strength. It’s through partnerships like these that our customers will continue to benefit from the world-class solutions they've come to expect from us."
Potential uses for the LIFX lamp are very exciting – it is possible to create a system where by it can wake you up in the morning, deliver notifications or even ward off intruders with a patent-pending security mode. For instance, a lamp could be set as a white light that blinks green when you get a notification on your smartphone or to blink when someone rings the door bell.
The LIFX lamp is extremely easy to install as it is just a case of replacing existing lamps with the LIFX bulb. As well as offering various colour options the LIFX bulb is also extremely energy-efficient as it utilises LED technology and can last up to 25 years.
