A little sibling

The most obvious difference between this year's bulb and last year's is the size. Like the name suggests, the LuMini is a tiny light compared to the bigger, heavier Lumen LED. It also uses less power, drawing only 3 watts.

Small, but smart

Like last year's Lumen LED, the LuMini connects with your phone using Bluetooth 4.0, allowing you to change the light's color on demand.

A mini price tag, too

The best part about this bulb has got to be the price. At just $35 per bulb, and ready to play with right out of the box, it's the most affordable and accessible color-changing smart LED that we've seen to date.
