In the last couple years, I’ve been switching my home’s standard and CFL light bulbs to LED bulbs to save energy and money. But as I’ve been doing that, I’ve seen lots of LED bulbs come on the market that can be controlled anywhere with a mobile app. I wish all my bulbs or even a few of the bulbs I already purchased had that feature without replacing them. Now they can with the iDevices Socket. Socket is a WiFi adapter that goes between your existing standard sized bulb and the receptacle in your ceiling or lamp. Just screw the Socket adapter in place and then screw in the light bulb and now you can control that bulb using the iDevices mobile iOS app. The Apple HomeKit enabled app offers a number of settings, including dimming, scheduling and Siri control. The Socket also features it’s own colored LED ring that can be customized to set the mood for any occasion. The iDevices Socket is available for pre-order for $79 with shipping at the end of June.

  2. $79.00??? It would appear that the market has not intervened to create competition for this line of products just yet. I recall 7 or 8 years ago when LED bulbs themselves were not dropping in price at all and probably for the same reason. $79.00 for a single socket, kiss my grits..
