Sengled, known as an innovator in LED Lighting, recently showed off its new Element lightbulb during CES. We’re excited to have been part of bringing the element to life by providing our best-in-class zigbee® technology for the award-winning connected light bulb.

 

Our wireless SoCs and zigbee stack make it possible for Element bulbs to connect to multi-node mesh networks deployed in smart homes. Using iOS and Android apps or popular smart home ecosystems, consumers can control Element bulbs individually or as groups, customize an array of smart lighting features, and schedule lights to turn on automatically in the evening or off during daylight hours to conserve energy.

 

The Element bulb’s sleek, modern design fits easily into existing light sockets and complements contemporary home decor. And it combines the unmatched energy efficiency of an LED bulb with advanced features such as customizable scheduling, color temperature tuning (soft white 2700K to daylight 6500K) and energy tracking, all controlled through cloud-connected wireless technology. An Element bulb uses 80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, offers a 60 W output equivalent while using only 9.8 W and is rated to last approximately 22 years. The Sengled Element bulb was selected as a 2017 CES Honoree in the Eco-Design and Sustainable Technologies category.

Based on the widely adopted IEEE 802.15.4 standard and operating in the 2.4 GHz band, zigbee provides the scalability, interoperability, reliability, energy efficiency and security features required for wireless smart lighting control. Silicon Labs is the industry’s leading supplier of zigbee mesh networking technology for Internet of Things (IoT) applications including connected lighting. To date, Silicon Labs has shipped more than 100 million mesh networking SoCs and modules to customers worldwide.
