After the Galaxy Gear, Samsung presents the connected bulb.
Connected objects are increasingly present in our lives, not to mention they invade us. Samsung has understood that, and decided to continue its momentum by offering the Smart Bulb, a connected bulb.

For the home, Samsung’s LED Smart Bulb fits into traditional fixture sockets and has a variety of control options. The Smart Bulb can be dimmed down to 10 percent brightness while the output color is tunable from 2700K to 6500K for warm or cool white colors. The bulbs should last around 10 years.

By using Bluetooth, Samsung says there’s no need for a hub or access point connection as the lights are controlled by a direct connection to a phone or tablet with a mobile app. Users can control up to 64 Smart Bulbs with the software!

For the moment, no date or price has been communicated.

Nest Protect by Nest

After the smart thermostat, Nest proposes a smart fire alarm.

We’ve all already been yelling by a fire alarm too sensitive, after letting the bread on the toaster too long , for example. Or just as you’re falling asleep, you hear a low-battery chirp. They’ve become annoying.

Before turning on a loud, howling alarm, Nest Protect gives you an early warning we call Heads-Up. Nest Protect lights up yellow and speaks with a human voice. It tells you where smoke is or when carbon monoxide levels are rising. This gives you an earlier warning if there’s an emergency, or allows you to silence Nest Protect if it’s just a nuisance alarm, like an overly enthusiastic toaster.

That’s not all!
In case of fire , a human voice will tell you how to react. A message will be sent to your smartphone to warn you and tell you where the danger is . Nest Protect will also send you a message to give you the status of your sensors ( battery condition of your devices ) .

Find the Nest Protect application on your Android or Apple devices, for more security and serenity.
