Pulse by Sengled Intelligent Bulb Reinvents Ambiance with LED Lighting Plus Wireless Speaker

ATLANTA, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sengled, a leading manufacturer of LED technology has revolutionized lighting with the introduction of Pulse by Sengled, an intelligent bulb with JBL multi-channel stereo wireless speakers. Pulse streamlines light and sound into one seamless system to enrich the atmosphere in personal, family, and public environments. The bulbs are available beginning today at www.sengledplus.com and other online retail outlets.

Pulse by Sengled(TM)

Pulse by Sengled is the first product in the new sengLED+ intelligent lighting family, which represents the company's vision of transforming lighting from utility to lifestyle with the integration of consumer electronics into LED lamps and luminaires.

Pulse can be installed like any other light bulb, into any typical light socket and works with virtually all Bluetooth-enabled devices, including smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Pulse combines the energy efficiency of LED with audio powered by JBL to provide the premier, multi-channel stereo LED light speakers on the market. The intelligent bulbs provide added ambiance to a room without the hassle of extra wires, cords, batteries and remote controls.

"In creating this intelligent bulb, Sengled leveraged our core competency as a leading LED lighting company, and has redefined light sockets as the hub of smart homes," said Alex Ruan, general manager of Sengled USA. "The introduction of Pulse is exciting because we were able to take something as ubiquitous as a light bulb and transform it into a consumer electronics product that brings together the utility of lighting and the lifestyle of music and ambiance."

To further enhance the simplicity and elegance of Pulse, Sengled partnered with EffectiveUI, a leading user experience agency, to design a visually intuitive mobile application that controls the bulb, available for both iOS and Android operating systems. Light and sound are controlled directly from the application, including the ability to adjust dimming and volume, assign one of six different audio settings via the built-in equalizer function, and launch media players such as Pandora, Spotify and others.

"As an extension of a product that is focused on creating and customizing an experience, it was critical that the application also provide an intuitive yet advanced interface for the user," said David Maren, vice president, Strategy & Innovation at EffectiveUI.

Pulse comes in sets of two bulbs – one master bulb and a wirelessly connected satellite bulb– at a suggested retail price of $169.99 for the pair. The bulbs are rated for at least 25,000 hours of life. Future versions of Pulse will include the ability to connect up to seven satellite bulbs to the master.  

Pulse is available immediately at www.sengledplus.com, as well as online retail outlets Amazon, Houzz and Rakouten.com.

Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
