 ilumi solutions, a market leader in connected and smart lighting products, is excited to take its connected bulbs to the outdoors with the BR30 Outdoor Smartbulb, announced at CES 2016. The Mark Cuban-backed and Shark Tank-funded ilumi has gained notoriety for its bright, smart and simple Smartbulbs, which are now sold in Best Buy stores across the U.S. and Home Depot Stores in Canada. Similar to ilumi’s first and second generation bulbs, the BR30 Outdoor is controlled via ilumi’s intuitive iOS and Android application that contains several features to help improve sleep, complement moods and enhance a user’s lifestyle.

The IP64 rated BR30 Outdoor is a flood Smartbulb designed to illuminate and create the perfect atmosphere in any outdoor area of a home, such as a porch, patio, outdoor deck or pool house, through rain or shine. The color-tunable Smartbulbs can be set to millions of different colors under the rainbow, for best in class lighting brightness, efficiency, & color quality with patented HyperLux® LED technology for any shade of white to rich vibrant colors.

The energy-efficient bulb produces more than 1000 lumens while only consuming 15 watts of power, the equivalent brightness of a 75-100 watt incandescent at a fraction of the energy cost. This, coupled with its up to eight year lifespan, makes the BR30 Outdoor an energy saving tool. Just screw in an ilumi Smartbulb like a regular bulb and download the free ilumi app to pick out exactly the right light color and brightness for your space and adjust it with your schedule.

Behind ilumi is patented MeshTekÔ Bluetooth® Smart mesh wireless connectivity that delivers a flexible & robust lighting control system without the headaches and allows users to connect and control up to 50 Smartbulbs at once with a Bluetooth range of up to 150 ft., all from the convenience of a smartphone or tablet. This unique technology lets homeowners control their indoor and outdoor lights from anywhere in the home. The app enables users to turn their outdoor lights off from the comfort of their bed, and their indoor lights off when they are enjoying their backyard, without having to worry about the restrictions of standard Bluetooth.

The BR30 Outdoor is controlled via ilumi’s free application, available in the App Store and Google Play. Users can unleash several experiences via the app, such as Vacation Mode, which prompts lights to illuminate at scheduled times to provide additional peace of mind when a homeowner is away; Light Your Routine, which allows users to schedule sunrises or set mood lighting for any occasion; and Music Sync, which syncs a user’s favorite playlist to the Smartbulb, making lights flash to the beat of songs. Ideal for parties or intimate gatherings, the BR30 Outdoor Smartbulb is sure to impress your guests. In early 2016, ilumi will be updating its app with several new exciting features and integrations with IFTTT, Nest, Amazon Echo and more.

The BR30 Outdoor will be available for pre-order at ilumi.co in Q1 2016, and available for purchase at national retailers in March 2016 for $69.99.
