General Electric Co
GE recently introduced their new interactive application for smartphones and tablets allowing homeowners to control home lighting when they are away from home. When consumers purchase the special LED light bulbs, they’re able to control the lighting using GE’s application no matter where they are. Consumers can find the LED bulbs at home improvement retail stores such as Home Depot. The bulbs will start being sold this coming fall, but due to the anticipation of consumers, they can already be pre-ordered.
Companies like General Electric are using technology to enhance their consumers’ home life, which has proven to excite, raise interest ultimately bring in more business. While there are several security companies who have tech similar to GE’s app, the appeal of the LED bulb is that it is a lot less costly than other forms.
