For those of us into Home Automation, GE is coming out with two new connected bulb. C-Life and C-Sleep.

http://cbyge.com

I only mention it because one of the C by GE bulbs is related to sleep. Or so they claim. No hub required, you control it with a smartphone. I wonder if you could control it with a hub or if Echo can.

Quote:One of the highlights of GE’s new line of affordable connected LED bulbs is the C-Sleep. The company introduced the products as lighting that works according to the user’s mood. According to the manufacturer, the C-Sleep line, designed to be used in bedrooms can help the body to regulate the production of melatonin, the hormone that induces to sleep.

Stats on their C-Life bulbs

Available in 2016 according to their email.


Now the bad news: The suggest price is $50. Way higher than the Cree Connected which sells at $15. Honestly the Cree has a much better light pattern and color index than the Philips Hue Lux bulb ($20). But for $50, I can buy the Philips Hue and at least have the ability to set colors. Smile

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

I'll stick with my Cree 2700K LED bulbs and Z-wave controllers.

RE: Home Automation
The more "connected" and "centralized" the world becomes, the greater the risk for a lot of bad things happening, everything from hacking, cyber-terrorism and even over-reaching government control of the stuff we use in our daily lives.

It's cool stuff, indeed. But for each advance in this kind of stuff, the potential for abuse and a single point of failure causing a catastrophe is increased.

All this stuff is dependent upon the electrical grid being up and the Internet being up. What happens when those systems we're completely dependent upon go down for long periods of time?

Our complete reliance upon an electrical grid (with no other alternatives) and the so-called "Internet of Things" are a very bad things, IMHO. Oh-jeez

RE: Home Automation
The light sounds interesting. I can only imagine that you could really run somebody crazy if you managed to hack their home system and they had these bulbs.

I remember as a kid hopping in the family car and driving across the U.S. for vacation, all by our lonesome. Now, a person can't go to the corner store without a phone. Star Trek's Borg are starting to look passe.

An adversary won't have to fire a shot to destroy America, just take down the power and communication grid and our kids won't know how to function. Actually, I question some kids ability to function now.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

Pretty much everything in the original Star Trek series has come to pass, with the exceptions of star ships with warp-drive and transporter technology. The tech stuff looks good on TV, of course, but we can get into a lot of tribble when it comes to trusting in our technology too much.
