The emberlight socket turns any bulb into a smart light. You simply screw in a bulb and that's it. No complicated hub to install and then configure. Our iOS app guides you through the simple process (seriously!) of connecting to your home's Wi-Fi network.
Once your lights are setup you can use the emberlight iOS app to control them from literally anywhere in the world. On, off and dimming is as easy as a tap or a swipe and the home screen lets you drag and drop your lights together into groups. Also, be sure to take advantage of Moods, which let you control all the lights in your house at once, and Locations which you can set to turn your lights on automatically when you come home and turn them off when you leave!

What's New in Version 1.0.15
Bug fixes and usability enhancements
The app works mostly fine
Another kickerstarter buyer, although I'm just here to rate the app and not the buzzing monstrosity that is the actual ember device. The app works fine, the lag is pretty low between app and the bulb, but it has a hard time connecting to wifi. The first time I started the app it lagged out searching for wifi names. Since there is no reset or back button, I had to force the app to close and restart the entire process over again. Admittedly, there are only a few steps, but it's irritating to have to redo. When it finally did work I had few problems with the app. The sliding scale is useful, the ability to name different bulbs is easy.
Simplicity meets functionality
Most folks expect the install to be more difficult than it really is. DON'T do that! It really is that simple. Just follow the directions on the app and verify your network is set up properly.
Now I don't need to buy a dimming switch. Now I can turn my lights on when I am away on vacation to deter bandits. This product and the associated app meet both of those needs!
The existing room wiring will not allow me to install a dimmer without cutting into the drywall. Enter the emberlight socket! I am getting another for downstairs.
Hope the post Kickstarter sockets are better
Bought two during their kickstarter campaign. Took forever to come. When they did, the experience was disappointing. Very little in the way of functionality. Only good for things like Edison bulbs. Otherwise better to buy a Hue Lux. Now mine have stopped working completely. App won't find them. Can't set them up as new again. Waste of money. DON'T BUY!
