For the Dorm

SYLVANIA SMART+

Available for pre-order now with delivery in September, the SYLVANIA SMART+™ A19 Full Color Light Bulb is Apple HomeKit™-enabled, which means all you need to do is screw the Bluetooth-enabled bulb into any lamp in an apartment or dorm, sync it to the Home app, and it can be easily controlled through Siri or Apple Home on an iOS 10 device – even if you are away from home.

This bulb is different from any other smart lighting product on the market, as it doesn’t require a separately purchased hub or an internet connection to use. It is dimmable and can be set to white or various colors.

The user-friendly Home app allows users to control all HomeKit accessories in one place, including lights, temperature, locks, garage doors, scenes and more, making it a great command center for your Smart Home.  LEDVANCE, maker of SYLVANIA general lighting in the US and Canada, will be adding a HomeKit-enabled SYLVANIA SMART+ A19 Soft White Light Bulb, Indoor Full Color Flex Strip, and Plug to the portfolio for purchase in the near future, adding even more ways to customize and control your Smart Home.

MyChill cools air naturally using no harmful chemicals or refrigerants, and is capable of cooling the air up to 12 degrees. It’s compact, and simply plugs into a standard electrical outlet, so it is a good fit for hot, stuffy dorms or college apartments, so MyChill makes an ideal “back to school” gift.

Warm air is drawn into the MyChill unit and passes through a wet cooling medium. The warm air mixes with water held in the unit, triggering the water to evaporate and dissipate heat, resulting in cooler, moisturized air.

The MyChill Personal Space Cooler Plus retails for $99.99 and provides a 6-foot cooling radius with three fan speeds. MyChill is available at Bed Bath & Beyond and on www.homedics.com.
