We’ve been talking about companies partnering up with Belkin’s WeMo (most notably here and here). However, it’s time to stop talking and start buying. The company recently: announced that three WeMo-enabled Osram LED Lightify starter kits are now available for purchase.
The new Osram LED Lightify bundles will feature lighting solutions for indoors and outside, with options for color as well. Each kit will include the WeMo Link ZigBee-to-WiFi bridge and specific Osram LED Lightify products, such as the Gardenspot Mini RGB, the Flex RGBW, and the Tunable White A19 LED Bulb.
All bundled Lightify products work with the included WeMo Link and the WeMo app for iOS and Android devices. That app allows users to turn lights on and off remotely, as well as tweak colors and color temperature, create schedules, organize groups, dim, set a sleep fader, and more. Also, the app has options for IFTTT (“If This Then That”), so users can create automation “recipes” that allow the lights to interact with other smart devices in the home.
The WeMo + Osram Lightify Gardenspot Mini RGB Starter Set is an option that will add color to the great outdoors. Designed for gardens, decks or walkways, the set includes a 14-foot string of nine Gardenspot Mini LED lights, the WeMo Link, a power supply, and a Lightify controller.
The WeMo + Osram Lightify Tunable White Starter Set comes with two tunable, 60-watt LED bulbs and the WeMo Link. This kit can deliver easy, automated indoor lighting, with a temperature range of 2,700 to 6,500 Kelvin. This allows users to switch between refreshing blue-toned whites and warmer yellow-tones whites to match the mood or the decor.
Finally, the WeMo + Lightify Flex RGBW Starter Set (pictured) can highlight everything from a hallway to a piece of furniture. It’s very flexible—literally. The kit comes with three 2-foot LED strips that can be attached almost anywhere, via self-adhesive backing. The set promises thousands of colors and a full range of whites. This package also includes WeMo Link, a power supply and a Lightify controller.
“The new WeMo + Osram Lightify starter sets expand the variety of lighting options for WeMo users with approachable and decorative smart lighting solutions for the whole home—from the kitchen to the backyard,” said Peter Taylor, director of product management for WeMo. “With a wide range of features, including full red, green, blue color spectrum and color temperature support and IFTTT compatibility, the Lightify sets are the first WeMo-enabled partner products to ship with a WeMo Link included, opening up the WeMo ecosystem to a whole new group of connected consumers.”
All three of the new Osram LED Lightify starter kits are available now. The WeMo + Osram Lightify Gardenspot Mini RGB Starter Set has an MSRP of $129.99, with the Tunable White Starter Set costing $99.99 and the Flex RGBW Starter Set priced at $119.99.
