December 20, 2017 // By Julien Happich
German smart LED lighting solutions provider Ledvance, maker of Sylvania general lighting in the US, has announced what it claims to be the world’s first HomeKit-enabled smart Filament A19 bulb.

The The Sylvania Smart+ Soft White A19 Filament Bulb combines the future of the Smart Home with the retro look of the past, and is available for pre order for Spring 2018 delivery on In addition, the company is making available the Sylvania Smart+ Indoor Flex Strip Full Color and Soft White A19 Bulb, two expansions that are also HomeKit-enabled and can be easily controlled directly using Bluetooth via Siri and Apple’s Home app, without the need to buy a separate hub or smart socket, or need a Wi-Fi router to function like other products.

After screwing in the Bluetooth-enabled bulb in a lamp or plugging in the Flex Strip, users can sync it with the Home app and start controlling their lights instantly. They can use the Home app or via voice commands with Siri to easily control the lights individually or in groups as part of scenes.  The Sylvania Smart+ Soft White A19 Filament Bulb and Soft White A19 Light Bulb provide up to 650 and 800 lumens respectively, which is the same as a 40W and 60W traditional bulb, and can be wirelessly dimmed to provide just the right amount of soft white (2700K) light.  The Indoor Flex Strip Full Color can go from soft white (2700K) to natural daylight (6500K) and change to millions of colours to quickly and easily complement or change the décor of any room. It has adhesive backing for a quick installation, and the malleable design makes it possible to contour around corners to enhance living areas, under couches and bed or as backlighting behind a TV. With a home hub, users can set up schedules to turn lights on and off while they are on vacation or for when they get home in the evening.
