Upcoming BR30 Outdoor smart bulb is iOS compatible

The connected home now encompasses the outdoors with ilumi’s upcoming BR30 Outdoor. It’s outdoor-rated LED smart bulb that’s iOS compatible.

Through its waterproof construction, it can take on rain and splashes from all angles. With its MeshTek Bluetooth Smart connection and color-tunable smartbulbs, the BR30 Outdoor — due this summer — can be used to create several ambiances in your backyard.

You can connect and control up to 50 ilumi Smartbulbs at once with a Bluetooth range of up to 150 feet, all from the convenience your iPhone or iPad thanks to a free app that’s available at the Apple App Store. The folks at ileum say the use of MeshTek technology eliminates the need for cumbersome hubs, restricting standard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.

The free app contains several experiences and features, 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. 

The BR30 Outdoor produces more than 1000+ lumens while consuming only 15 watts of power. The BR30 Outdoor is available now for pre-order at BestBuy.com and ilumi.co for $69.99.
