Sony has announced its hybrid smart bulb and wireless speaker will be available for the first time in the US in summer 2016.

With tried and true hardware inside the bulb and smooth performance on multiple platforms, this $15 smart bulb is a smart bet for connected lighting.
Due this fall, the color-changing iLumi smart LED is getting a makeover, new features and a fresh round of early-bird pricing specials.
