ATLANTA, March 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sengled, makers of intelligent lighting products that integrate consumer electronics with LED bulbs, today announced that the company is partnering with Republic Records to demonstrate how a reinvented light bulb can bring music to life – and light. Sengled's smart LED bulb with a built-in JBL speaker makes it simple to integrate music into everyday life – without all the clutter of wires, power cords and remote controls. Sengled and Republic Records will team up at the SXSW conference to show music lovers how it works between live shows from popular bands.

Sengled Pulse is an LED lightbulb with an integrated JBL speaker to enable wire-free delivery of quality sound throughout the home. Pulse is sold as a starter kit that includes a master bulb and one satellite bulb. Users can connect up to six additional satellite bulbs for a total of eight, creating a Bluetooth-enabled sound system they can control via an iOS or Android app to play music from their digital collection or platforms like Pandora or Spotify. Pulse is the perfect addition to smart homes of any size. Pulse smart bulbs bring adjustable lighting to existing fixtures and deliver rich sound via Bluetooth-enabled speakers to crank up the volume at an impromptu house party or add romantic music to a candlelight dinner.   

"We're thrilled to work with Republic Records to show how the lightbulb can be continuously reinvented in cool new ways to make life more fun and enjoyable for modern consumers," said Robin Foreman, VP of Marketing and Business Development of Sengled North America. "We're grateful to MediaCom for bringing Sengled and Republic Records together, and we're excited about showcasing Pulse at SXSW and continuing to work with the music label to show how intelligent lighting can make smart homes even smarter while integrating entertainment options into everyday life."

"With Sengled Pulse, music lovers can download their favorite Republic Records artists and immerse themselves in sound throughout their homes," said Jim Roppo, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Republic Records. "We can't wait to show music fans at SXSW how Pulse can let them integrate the music they love from groundbreaking artists such as James Bay and hip hop stars like Charles Hamilton into their everyday lives."

Republic Records will be collaborating with Sengled to bring music to life – and light –with Pulse at the music label's VIP SXSW event. Attendees can get a feel for Pulse between live music sets from MisterWives, Jamestown Revival, James Bay, Dotan and The Mowgli's.
