Home automation technology manufacturer INSTEON has introduced the world’s “first-to-market networked remote control dimmable LED light bulb.”

“For years, home automation has controlled light fixtures with plug-in lamp modules, wire-in switches and keypads. But, until now, no one has controlled the bulb itself. It’s exciting to be the first to introduce a new product to the world,” said Joe Dada, chief executive officer, INSTEON.

Link one INSTEON LED Bulb to as many controllers as you want—including keypads, motion sensors, door sensors or even your smartphone. Or, link multiple bulbs to a single controller and turn them all on or off at the same time.

The INSTEON LED Bulb is described by the manufacturers as being simple to set up, with intuitive control and easy linking to any INSTEON controller. The the bulb will obviously be controlled by a remote control, but it can also be controlled by a free app for iOS and Anrdoid smartphones or tablets, a must-have feature in today’s technology rich field.

The bulb is fully dimmable, can be used in any number of situations and set ups, and will retail for $29.99. A video demonstration was provided by INSTEON and can be seen in the YouTube video below.
