Android users can also benefit from Bluetooth mesh technology. If they have multiple SYLVANIA Bluetooth mesh devices, they can control the SYLVANIA lights in another room, on the next floor, or even outside their home thanks to the ability of mesh devices to relay commands and information between each other, effectively extending the control range of their phones. With Bluetooth mesh devices, users can also take advantage of increased reliability and scalability with a limited delay in response when controlling individual or groups of lights together.
The new SYLVANIA Smart Home app available on Google Play gives Android users easy control of popular features such as turning lights on and off, grouping their lights, adjusting the brightness level, and changing colors with Full Color products.
While other smart lighting products require a gateway or rely on a Wi-Fi router as a hub controlled by Siri, Alexa or the Google Assistant, SYLVANIA SMART+ Bluetooth LED lighting products eliminate the need for additional hardware and provide simplified control - nothing more, nothing less. These are perfect for high school or college students who want to personalize their bedrooms, dorms rooms or apartments, or anyone who wants to enjoy the convenience of smart lighting.
Apple users can control their lights from the Apple Home app on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch® or Apple Watch®, by using Siri on any device including HomePod™, or directly from Control Center. Outside the home, a HomeKit home hub (HomePod, 4th generation Apple TV® or an iPad with the latest version of iOS) can remotely control these units and set up automations.
Pricing ranges from around $22 to $45 depending on type.
Six SYLVANIA SMART+ Bluetooth products are available for integration with the SYLVANIA Smart Home App. They are the SYLVANIA SMART+ Bluetooth A19 Soft White, A19 Full Color, A19 Filament, BR30 Soft White, BR30 Full Color, and Indoor Full Color Flex Strip. Products are available on Amazon, select Home Depot locations and homedepot.com, Menards and menards.com, and other retailers. The SYLVANIA SMART+ Bluetooth In Wall Switch and Plug, in addition to an iOS version of the app, will come at a later date.
