My friend and co-worker clued me into this new LED Lightbulb tech this morning. The starter pack is $200 (!) for three bulbs and a hub that can control a slew of these bulbs. Definitely not going to be an early adopter on this. But thought it was a cool concept that could be great as the price for the technology comes down.
Weirdest thing to me is that it’s an Apple Store exclusive. I get that it’s wi-fi driven and has an iOS app to control it, but seems a weird thing to be an Apple Store exclusive.
Apple is definitely dipping its toes in the home automation between this and the Nest thermostat. Hopefully, their eventual Apple branded stuff will be better than those pop-up advertised X11 crap.
