Ilumi Smart Bulbs

Unlike other smart lighting options, Ilumi smart bulbs do not require an internet connection or hub to work. They connect through a smartphone and Bluetooth only. Plus, a life span of 20 years beats any other smart light bulbs on the market.

  • Indoor BR30 Colour LED Smart Light Bulb
  • Outdoor BR30 Colour LED Smart Light Bulb
  • LED Smartstrip Starter Kit 

Compatible Hubs

No hub required and works with IFTTT

What’s In The Box?

  • 1 x colour-changing LED smart bulb
  • Quick Start Guide 

Setup Instructions

Ilumi lighting has a very easy setup option. All you need to do is:

  • screw in the light bulb
  • power on the light
  • download the ilumi app from iOS or Android app store
  • create an ilumi account
  • your smartphone/tablet will automatically detect ilumi light bulb

Follow the tutorial about various features and options to play around with. You can connect up to 50 ilumi smart bulbs and arrange them by groups in the app. The bulbs communicate among themselves within a 50 ft range. For most people that will be all the way across your house. 

You can make each one to be of a different colour, but synchronised too. There’s a festival of lighting options and you can set up preset scenes such as a winter wonderland, fireworks, candlelight; even haunted house, whaaaooo.

From the colour wheel, you can pick any colour of the rainbow, as well as luminosity. An additional party option is “music synch.” This setting will make your ilumi smart bulbs pulse to the beat of your music. You can set the brightness, saturation and save your favourite colours and schedule.  

Ilumi LED light bulbs are plastic but the body is made of metal which gives a nice weight to it and makes the bulbs more durable.
