Interested in adding some custom lighting to your home for those special occasions? The PLAYBULB Rainbow is definitely one to consider.
Aside from typical smart lighting that kicks on when I’m hitting the loo in the middle of the night, I haven’t experimented with a smart bulb like the MiPow PLAYBULB Rainbow that has the ability to switch to dozens of custom colors and effects from my Android. It seems I’ve been missing out on a world of intelligent lighting that’s perfect for parties, movies, or even bedside use.
The entire light measures about 4.6-inches in length and fits any standard E26/E27 light socket. Inside is an LED bulb that puts out 280 lumens and is capable of a RGB lighting scheme. The PLAYBULB Rainbow utilizes Bluetooth v4.0 and has a wireless range of around 30 feet, given there aren’t many walls between your device and the light. At only 5W per bulb, your electric bill certainly won’t have much to say about your new lighting setup.
After screwing in the smart bulb, you’ll need to jump on the Play Store and download the PLAYBULB X app (also available for iOS if it’s a divided household). Once installed, make sure your PLAYBULB is turned on and you should see it listed under “Devices”. Tap Connect and you’re ready to start experimenting with colors, effects and more.
