Home automation is not the wave of the future, it’s here today with things like controlling your home’s AC while you’re at work or simply without having to get off the couch. Combining lighting with speakers is logical while controlling this from your smartphone just adds to the convenience of living.
JBL has partnered with Sengled to create a unique line of light bulbs that use energy efficient LED lighting with home automation, smartphone control and wireless internet enhancement features. Sengled has LED light bulbs that have built in speakers, full 1080P cameras or a Wi-Fi repeater to enhance your home.
The Sengled Pulse is a pair of LED lights with built in JBL multi-channel speakers that can be controlled by a smartphone app on an android or iPhone device. The App is free while the pair of speaker lights cost about $120 for great sounds and lighting that is controlled from your phone.
The Sengled Pulse comes in gray or red and the pair comes as a kit with a Master and a Satellite speaker light but you can purchase extra satellites for about $60. Pairing the master is as easy as using Bluetooth to control your speaker while the Sengled App is used to control both volume and light intensity.
You can skip the app and simply pair the speakers as you would a regular pair of Bluetooth speakers and enjoy music but the controls for dimming lights makes much more sense. The app and speakers themselves work flawlessly without any problems over the last month I have had them.
My only complaint is the level of light from the LED bulb which is about 600lumens from the 15 watt LED lights which is about equivalent to a 50 watt incandescent light bulb. The light is just not bright enough for general work in my kitchen but it does make good lighting for smaller areas.
I can really see the advantages of this in a business environment as well as a home with spot lighting for displays or parts of a store. At home you can simply light smaller areas with the dimmer controls while rocking out to your favorite music or use them for entertaining.
Music apps like Pandora and Amazon Prime worked flawlessly with the Sengled Pulse lights and I have no complaints whatsoever with how well the light speakers worked. They also sound great with your typical fantastic sounding JBL quality that I have seen in all the products I have received that bear their name.
The Sengled Pulse sounds great but they are a smaller speaker so getting pounding bass is not going to happen even though they do pretty good. Highs and mids are strong and not tinny while bass does sound good but you just don’t get full sound from speakers this small.
They do a great job for what they are and are well worth a look for parties and entertaining as well as general lighting in your home that also have great little speakers. I have a great idea to use this pair in weatherproof wooden enclosures on each side of my deck that will have a Japanese style roof.
That’s for the future but for now I can enjoy great tunes while using my smartphone to play music as well as control the lights that I have been using in my kitchen. I highly recommend the Sengled Pulse LED wireless speakers for a great way to enjoy tunes as well as light up your life.
