HomeBrite® is currently the only Bluetooth Smart Mesh light bulb available. Utilizing Bluetooth Smart Mesh gives the ability to control bulbs from long distances because each bulb communicates with other bulbs in your Bluetooth Smart Mesh. It’s low-power and energy saving by using the latest in Bluetooth and LED technology.
I was excited to learn about and to review the Kasa Bluetooth Smart LED Light Bulb from Veho. The E26 bulb arrives in a black cardboard box with clear window. This allows you to directly visualize the bulb and to not rely on an image. The bulb is typically shaped and has an upper lighting portion and a lower black portion with a silver screw at the base. The bulb is a 7.5 watt LED bulb, which is equivalent to a traditional 40-watt bulb. The bulb is detailed as an E26 screw (Edison socket, invented 1909), which is the standard bulb socket in most USA lamps. This is not a candelabra bulb, which are typically E12 screws. The Kasa bulb is purported to last 15 years or 15000 Hours, at 3-4 hours per day usage. Additionally, this bulb is dimmable.
