Bril­liant Light­ing Re­mote RGB Globe

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

OLD SCHOOL AD­JUSTABLE LIGHT­ING.

SMARTHOME LIGHT­ING CAN be great, but it can also be oh so frus­trat­ing if your net­work doesn’t want to play nice. The Bril­liant Light­ing RGB Globe takes a less smart, but still use­ful ap­proach by ditch­ing the Wi-Fi. In­stead, it in­cludes an IR re­mote, that al­lows you to di­rectly switch the light on and off, and con­trol the bright­ness, as well as the RGB colour. It also has op­tions such as flash­ing, strobe and fad­ing for some in­ter­est­ing party ef­fects. Bright­ness ad­just­ments are lim­ited to four dif­fer­ent lev­els and 16 dif­fer­ent colours.

While the bulb can’t link into your Google Home,or turn it­self on and off to a sched­ule, it is sim­ple to use, and only costs $27. The bulb it­self is rated at 5W, so is bet­ter suited to a lamp rather than pro­vid­ing light for a large room. It also is only avail­able us­ing the E27 screw style fit­ting, so is not good for older light sock­ets. The re­mote con­trol uses two AA bat­ter­ies, which are not in­cluded.
