Building a robust, whole home lighting ecosystem is now possible with WeMo ecosystem with Cree LED lighting solution. According to the press release, the association of Cree and WeMo (IoT brand from Belkin) eliminates the worry over lights being left on by setting automatic sunrise/sunset timers, making things safer by never coming home to a dark house, trick would-be burglars by creating vacation rules to have lights go on and off at different times while away, and keep cozy under the covers by turning the lights off from bed. Other options include individual or group bulb control, brightness control and a sleep fader that gradually fades the lights to darkness.
The press release states, “The Connected Cree LED Bulb will connect to the WeMo ecosystem through the WeMo Link, a ZigBee-to-Wi-Fi bridge that connects any WeMo-enabled LED bulb to the home wireless network and the WeMo app. The bulb will be controllable from anywhere using a smartdevice and the WeMo app. Through the app, the Connected Cree Bulb will also work with other WeMo products, including the WeMo Light Switch, WeMo Insight Switch, WeMo Maker, WeMo Smart LED bulbs, and NetCam HD+. Integrating fully with WeMo ecosystem will allow customers to easily create a fully integrated smart home customised to their needs and schedule.”
