Sengled, a leading manufacturer of innovative smart lighting solutions for the smart home, is announcing another new product at the IFA International Consumer Electronics Show. The Sengled Everbright combines an energy-efficient LED lamp with an integrated emergency light. In the event of a power outage or defective fuses, the new LED provides up to three and a half hours of light. This is possible thanks to the integrated rechargeable battery which is constantly charged during regular use.
It lights when others fail. The Sengled Everbright comes up trumps when conventional bulbs stop working and only a search for a torch, candles or a lighter can light up the dark. Equipped with an integrated rechargeable battery (capacity: 900 mAh), the innovative bulb will provide light for up to three and a half hours when the power supply has been cut. The Sengled Everbright can help to find the problematic fuse box, serve as a back-up on construction sites or guide you out into a safe open space in an emergency.
The Sengled Everbright is based on a very simple principle: The rechargeable battery is integrated into the housing of the LED light and is charged via a conventional E27 socket. With a regular power supply, the bulb provides light with a brightness of 500 lumens. In the event of a power outage, the Sengled Everbright automatically reduces its brightness to 300 lumens. This enables the lamp to save precious energy and delivers more than three hours of self-sufficient lighting.
The Sengled Everbright is incredibly easy to install and use: The LED is inserted into a standard socket just like a normal light bulb and can be used to replace obsolete light bulbs. The smart bulb can now be operated as usual via the light switch with no need to control it via an app. The LED can also independently distinguish between the power being turned off via the light switch and an actual power outage.
In addition to the extra security and comfort it offers, the Sengled Everbright also enhances users’ energy footprint: It has a lifespan of around 25,000 hours and when compared to a 40-watt light bulb of similar brightness, it consumes just 9 watts of power.
Price and availability
The Sengled Everbright will celebrate its premiere at IFA 2016 and is expected to be commercially available from November 2016. The recommended retail price is 19.90 EUR.
