Bringing the power of the Internet to the ordinary light bulb is one of the things that GreenWave Reality demonstrated at Parks Associates' Smart Energy Summit in Austin last January. The implications of this meet-up of the network with light source goes beyond energy efficiency and reaches into the fundamentals of home construction. For instance, why install wall-mount switches, when a smart phone or tablet, both from within and outside the home, can control the light? Why run AC everywhere, when LEDs lightbulbs could conceivably operate on low-voltage D.C. power?
GreenWave Reality's announcement with semiconductor giant, NXP, is evidence that what was demonstrated in the above video will soon be mainstream.
