LOS ANGELES, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sengled, world leader in intelligent lighting products, today announced their partnership with the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (HACoLA) to bring sustainable and reliable lighting solutions to residents in Southern California. Sengled's contributions include donations of various energy efficient LED light bulbs and smart bulbs to local communities in an effort to decrease the overall energy consumption while providing emergency lighting for residents during blackouts. Leading utility provider Southern California Edison will also provide education and information on programs and services to help residents reduce energy costs.
"Our goal is to provide Southern California residents with the most reliable, convenient and energy efficient lighting solution possible," said Robin Foreman, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Sengled. "We are honored to collaborate with Los Angeles County and Southern California Edison to help facilitate these projects and through these efforts we hope residents experience an improved quality of life."
Sengled plans to donate traditional LED light bulbs along with Everbright, a light bulb that includes a battery back up to provide 3.5 hours of light when electricity is lost, to the residents of the Nueva Maravilla public housing development, located in East Los Angeles. Everbright is particularly helpful in the Southern California region where electrical blackouts can impact up to 11 million people for up to 14 planned days. The teams are also exploring ways to incorporate Everbright into larger disaster preparedness programs throughout the region.
"We're thrilled with Sengled's willingness to contribute to our local communities," said Sean Rogan, Executive Director of the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles. "Reliable and sustainable lighting solutions are not often top priorities for our low income CARE members, but when the change is made, it makes a huge impact."
Sengled will kick off the partnership by donating roughly 2,400 LED light bulbs as well as 600 Everbright smart bulbs to Nueva Maravilla, which will help 500 households and over 1,000 residents. Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, as well as officials from the HACoLA and Southern California Edison will be at the installation event on November 17 to facilitate the donation and discus the benefits Sengled light bulbs provide residents, which includes an average yearly saving of $150 in energy costs.

By integrating consumer electronics with energy saving LED bulbs, Sengled provides consumers with app controlled, intuitive, eco-friendly products that bring smart home capabilities to every room to enhance the connected home with technology for audio, connectivity and security.
