- GE Lighting is adding several new C by GE technologies to its expanding portfolio of smart home products. These are the details.
GE Lighting announced it is adding several new C by GE technologies to its expanding portfolio of smart home products. This includes advanced lighting switch and dimmer technologies along with new comfort, safety, and security solutions.
The new lighting products for the smart home will be available at retailers in early 2020. And the new comfort and security solutions are scheduled to launch in retail stores later this year.
And the new products that extend beyond the lighting space can be operated with a single mobile application that can be easily installed and maintained.
“For nearly 130 years, GE Lighting has been a trusted brand and consumers continue to have confidence in the C by GE smart home products we offer,” said Paul Williams, GM Product Management & Growth, GE Lighting. “As we expand our presence in the smart home, we’re committed to providing them with convenient products that exceed expectations.”
It’s worth mentioning that the new C by GE Hubless Three-Wire Smart Switch and two Hubless Dimmer models are industry firsts. And they do not require an additional product like a hub to integrate with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa for voice control.
These products give more consumers access to smartphone technologies as they can be installed and operated in most North American households regardless of the age of the home.
The Smart Switches do not require a neutral wire and are smaller in size. This makes them widely compatible and simple to install. Plus they come with an optional accessory that eliminates bulb “ghosting” and “flickering” that can occur with other smart switch solutions.
The C by GE Wire-Free (battery-powered) Dimmer is able to seamlessly control C by GE smart bulbs, switches, and dimmers.
The Dimmer can be placed on any wall using an easy-to-install and removable adhesive strip. And this feature provides a simple way for consumers to add an additional location for controlling room lighting and gives consumers the ability to avoid working on electrical wiring in the home.
Plus the Wire-Free (battery-powered) Motion Sensor and Wire-Free (battery-powered) Remote Control are also going to be available to consumers thus enhancing the smart home experience.
The C by GE smart switches, bulbs, and plugs that reside in a single room or through an entire home can now be wirelessly controlled by one app, one touch, or through voice control with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. And C by GE bulbs use advanced light-mixing technology augmented with sensors that replicate the feel of natural light throughout the day. With the app, daily routines can be personalized.
