GreenWave Reality ships WiFi-aware light bulbs that flick on through motion and smartphones

By simply screwing in the bulbs, consumers can immediately begin to control their lights. The solution comes pre-configured with "home," "away" and "night" Smart Controls. For example, before bed, consumers can simply press the "night" Smart Control to turn off all lights, eliminating the need to go from room to room to turn lights off. Consumers can also create their own custom Smart Controls to fit their lifestyle, such as having outdoor lights automatically come on at dusk and turn off at dawn, and even integrating with motion sensors to automatically turn lights on or off when entering or exiting a room. For added convenience and safety, the solution is "light switch friendly," meaning that existing wall switches will still turn the lights on or off in all circumstances.

"According to Parks Associates, the most desired consumer feature of a smart home is lighting control," said Greg Memo, CEO of GreenWave Reality. "With our Connected Lighting Solution, we are providing consumers with a powerful, personal way to reduce energy consumption while enhancing the comfort in their home."
