When speaking of bulbs “smart” is often connected bulbs Philips Hue style that you think. SmartCharge is a bulb that is not controllable by smartphone, which is not connecting. This bulb that is developed in India offers a smart function during a power failure: it continues to light up!
One who has not experienced power failure won’t understand. When the power is off, it’s silly to say but… the lights go out, the garage door does not open, kitchen appliances does not work, electric shutters remain desperately in a static position… All the lights in your House are useless. In this situation, the SmartCharge bulbs, offer safety only to find you in the dark. Equipped with points of light will be able to continue to operate normally. You can even continue to control them as naturally as possible IE with the switches of origin.
The question that immediately came to mind was how long the bulb could be kept on during a power failure. The manufacturer announced 4 hours of continuous use. To extend the duration of lighting failure you can of course continue to count on the wall switch in order to save the present charging on the bulb. The total duration of successive ignition should then not exceed 4 announced total hours.
There are no secrets to offer this feature. The inside of the bulb is a rechargeable Li-ion battery. His life is 300-400 cycles of recharge. Based on usage, it may be necessary to replace the battery every 3 to 4 years.
This bulb requires no change of fixtures or existing electrical installation. Simply screw it in lieu of a bulb E27. The intelligence of the bulb also lies in the fact that she is able to distinguish between the power outage due to a cut through switch or a power loss:
If the switch was on one when the power was cut, the SmartCharge bulb will remain on it.
If the switch was off, the bulb SmartCharge remain off.
Unlike security bulbs that light up as soon as there is a power outage, the SmartCharge keep operation dictated by the switch status.
Recovery of the current the batteries are automatically recharged.
The bulb is not yet available. She could see the day based on the results of the ongoing Kickstarter campaign. This campaign is needed to raise the funds for the production. It should be available in April 2014. On Kickstarter you will cost $ 35.

It will be understood, the intelligence of the SmartCharge bulb is to use one of the characteristics of the LED, which is their low power consumption. The battery takes over to make it work in case of power failure in the area. It is perhaps unnecessary to equip all the appliques with this technology, but why not use a key to the House place to reassure residents time to find candles…
