C by GE swings for the smart lighting fences at CES 2019
Hey guys, I'm here at the GE lighting booth in Las Vegas for CES 2019, taking a look at the new expanded C by GE smart lighting lineup.
As you can see, we've got a bunch of new smart switches and new smart bulbs, plus some smart accessories coming this year.
But let's start with the switches.
The switches have Bluetooth and WiFi in them and they'll be able to connect with Alexa and with the Google Assistant and also with Siri via Apple HomeKit You've got a lot of options, starting with some very ordinary, traditional-looking toggle and paddle switches that'll sell for $35.
Then you've got these nicer ones that are kind of fancier, more modern looking, and standard on/off switch here, one that's got a built-in A motion detector back here and a built-in light sensor, and also the ones that will dim your lights.
These ones up here for 35 will not.
The bulbs start at $40 for color changing bulbs and that's our first VGE lighting.
Our first color changing bulbs ever if you can believe it.
You can see we've got a lot of new options and a lot of old ones as well.
Coming a very fully fledged option in the lighting option in the lighting aisle from a brand that people recognize.
So GE's in a good spot this year.
Now I mentioned that integration with Google.
GE's actually a made for Google partner, and that means that its bulbs integrate really nicely with the assistant.
You can pair them and the switches with the Google home line of speakers, without needing any extra hub hardware.
Or you could do it right from the Google Home app, don't even need the GE app.
So if you buy the bulb, **** it in, sync it up, you can do things like this.
Okay, Google, turn on the dining room.
All of the new bulbs and switches will be rolling out this year starting this spring with the initial line of switches already available for pre-order on GE's website.
They're well-connected and pretty well-priced, so keep an eye on GE Lighting this year.
