Imagine a home where you can stream music in any room, where there are no Wi-Fi black spots and where you can monitor the house while you’re away via your smartphone. Sounds expensive, right? Wrong.

An affordable smart home is no longer a pipe dream. Nor does it require messy wires and expensive set-up. In fact, it’s as easy as changing a light bulb. Welcome to the age of D.I.Y. home automation, where you can do all of this and be sitting on the couch enjoying your fully integrated home audio system that same day.

Melbourne-based company Sengled, the brains behind these cleverly designed home solutions, is winning international awards for its products and it’s easy to see why. Sengled light bulbs are the ultimate home improvement, making your home spaces more functional and liveable, reducing clutter, and using your existing fittings.

How does it work?

The technology is built into ecofriendly, high quality, energy-saving LED light globes. You can choose from screw or pin bulbs and all products are designed to work with your existing fittings.

The range

Pulse combines a light bulb with a wireless speaker from audio provider JBL that enables you to stream music, podcasts, movies, sporting events and more.

The smaller model, Pulse Solo, is also fitted with quality JBL speakers and is suitable for bedside tables or desk lamps.

Snap gives you a high-definition video and audio surveillance system, with two-way voice communication. It streams to an app on your phone, which you can access from anywhere. Use it as a security system while travelling, or as a baby monitor while sitting in another room in the house. It’s that versatile and that simple.

Boost is a Wi-Fi extender that helps expand your home’s internet reach by up to 30m. And by placing it in areas that might have been black spots in your home, you can enable better connectivity wherever you are hanging out.

Easy to use, easier to install

They are not only easy to install but also incredibly user friendly. It has never been cheaper to turn your home into a smart home. Even better, this option is perfect if you’re renting or planning on moving. Simply remove the globes and take them with you to the next place.

Check out the range

As well as the Sengled Snap, Sengled also produces a range of other handy devices built in to light globes.
