CONNECT SMARTHOME RANGE GETS A GLOWING UPDATE WITH NEW AFFORDABLE AMBICOLOUR LIGHTING
LASER, Australia’s home-grown consumer electronics success story, has today announced the expansion of its highly successful CONNECT SmartHome range with the launch of its new AmbiColour RGB ambient smart lighting solutions. Creative and smart, customisable and colourful, these new smart lights come in a range of shapes and sizes and are affordable and simple to set up and use. They easily integrate and work with other smart home products, and are also a great way to experience smart lighting technology and its many aesthetic benefits for the first time.
These new lighting options include a series of LED panels that can be arranged in many different shapes or patterns, and Smart TV Backlight LED Strip Lights that directly integrate with other media for a more immersive entertainment experience. Easy to customise and use, each product incorporates a wide array of RGB colours so that shades or patterns can be easily selected or changed depending on the mood, activity or environment.
Compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa, users can control their decorative ambient lighting via voice command or as standalone products controlled via the CONNECT SmartHome app (Android/iOS), with a remote control also included in several products. These new additions update and expand the existing CONNECT SmartHome range with a variety of RGB lighting options.
The launch of the AmbiColour smart lighting range continues LASER’s commitment to deliver affordable but high quality and easy to setup smart home products that offer a simple way for Australians to embrace smart lighting or add to their existing smart home setup through the addition of dynamic, ambient, and decorative options.
The range is Google-licensed, ensuring no interruptions after updates, while full compliance with Australian Standards and Regulations, replacement warranty and local customer support ensures consumers can get the best in affordable technology knowing it is fully supported and compliant locally.
Since entering the market four years ago, CONNECT SmartHome has gone from strength to strength. In early 2020 it became the first smart home brand to offer $10 smart light bulbs, effectively positioning a smart option against its traditional lighting counterpart, a move that has since seen LASER and its CONNECT Smart Home brand become the leading smart lighting brand by volume.
“Over the past four years we’ve seen Australians embrace smart technology like never before, which in turn has made their lives easier and safer. With today’s news we can add colour and vibrancy to people’s homes with smart lighting technology, giving people a chance to decorate their space differently and more affordably than has been possible before,” said Chris Lau, Managing Director of LASER and Head of CONNECT SmartHome.
“We’re excited to continue to educate the market around combining products to create schedules and scenes that enhance your life. With this range, they can be easily automated so that when you simply say ‘Hey Google, it’s party time’, or ‘Hey Google, it’s movie time’ your lights will meet the occasion and deliver an immersive entertainment experience”
