Connected Home Lighting System

I already told you several times to today, especially for its bulbs connected, able to stream music. I also made you a test here. The french manufacturer will not stop there, and intend to offer a complete connected home solution. Meanwhile the connected switch which will be released very soon, here’s a little test of the new white bulb SmartLed, at very attractive price, but also the decision-making connected SmartPlug, coming to expand the family.

  1. unpacking

Let’s start with the bulb SmartLed 13W that I have received:

In appearance, it is a quite classic light bulb, which nevertheless offers the variation of intensity and the choice of the temperature, for all combinations between a hot and a cold light, according to their preferences or the need of the moment.

It comes simply with a small manual for commissioning, which is, I assure you, very simple 😉

Although a connected light bulb, the dimensions are quite in standard, as can be see here compared to a light bulb Philips Hue or another classic Led light bulb:

SmartPlug, she, taking comes in a cardboard packaging in the colors of the brand:

Inside, Ditto, there are the plug with a little note:

The dimensions of decision-making remains very limited: 40.5 x 45.7 x 34mm

Without being the smallest market, compared with plugs Everspring or Fibaro, it retains quite reasonable proportions.

On top, there is a button to be able to drive it locally, without having to launch the application on their smartphone:

Practical detail: taking has two locations Earth (“holes” that can be seen), allowing to connect in one way or another depending on the need.

Once connected, the today logo on the front lights. Rest assured your, the application allows to disable lighting, if necessary, to place it in a room for example. Although she will serve as pilot for a children’s room 😉

Now for the mobile application.

  1. use

You start by installing the Awox Smart Control app on iOS and Android. Once installed, three screens quickly explain the possibilities.

Whether the SmartLed or the SmartPlug, both connect to Bluetooth. Of course must activate it on your smartphone. Then you can add devices to the application. In practice, it is very simple: once the bulb is screwed or plug connected, the application automatically detects them. No pairing bluetooth or convoluted manipulation, it’s automatic. And frankly, we appreciate!

There are more to give a name to the bulb and the room where it is located. It’s over, the bulb can be used!

By “clicking” on it can quickly adjust brightness and warmth, to adapt it to our needs. Some frequently used shades are available directly at the bottom of the screen.

It is also possible to set alarms, to light the bulb at a given time, and leave on a while if we wish. Handy for an alarm clock, or a simulation of presence, even if the latter we would have liked to be able to define a slot with a random ignition during this slice. An evolution that will come later.

Finally, note the availability of a “disco” mode Once activated, selecting the music you want, the bulb will light to the rhythm of music, varying its brightness. Less disco than the Striimlight, capable of changing color, but the function has the merit to be there 🙂

The operation of the SmartPlug is about the same. After the addition of decision-making, it becomes immediately operational.

The application offers us here a somewhat innovative feature: the proximity detection, which allows you to automatically turn on the devices when you’re nearby. Unfortunately I could not make it work.

Interesting function, on the other hand, the monitoring of energy: this is indeed able to measure the power consumption of the devices on it. The application then presents information graphically by day, week, or month. Simple and effective.

Finally, note the possibility to create groups of devices, whether bulbs or struggling, to be able to control everything with one click.

III. Conclusion

Today expanded still further his family of connected objects. Before offering a wide range of bulbs, capable of changing color, to broadcast music, scents, detect fires, or even film, Awox returns to more simple, but essential products. Indeed, everyone don’t needs bulbs colors, or music. Here, with the SmartLed, we have a ‘simple’ bulb, but that does what we ask: enlighten. This very correctly, since there are different powers, ranging from 7 to 13W, more than enough to illuminate a room. We have growing the possibility as we saw vary the intensity and heat, that in fact a bulb happens everywhere. Strong point: its rate of 19 to €25, is something nearly the price of a good classic led bulb. The will of Awox was indeed to give access to everyone to connected bulbs, for a price of around not connected bulbs.

The SmartPlug, she allows suddenly to broaden the perspective of the House connected to Awox, limited to lighting so far: now it becomes possible to control devices, and follow their consumption. And here again for a very attractive price, since the SmartPlug is available at the price of € 29. Able monitor shooting consumption of a device, simply, there is no equivalent to this price in Z-wave, the SmartPlug is very well placed. And for the general public, the offer today is all the more interesting that it is very simple to use and requires no Automation box. Remains that the scenarios will be of course more limited, and above all, for the moment, all this equipment is controllable when you’re at home, since the SmartLed or even the SmartPlug communicate only in bluetooth :/ Hope that a gateway IP / Bluetooth points the nose soon, connected home being really connected when you can fly it also from the outside. I give you now make you for the next test of SmartPebble switch that we discovered at the these and who looked really nice, since this will be the next product out 😉
