HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Electric (, a leader in problem-solving lighting products, has developed patented computer technology that enables consumers to control the function of the Smart Bulbs with the flick of a switch. Utilizing a computer chip with microscopic parts embedded in the base of the lamp, Smart Bulbs are programmed to perform a variety of functions that control the bulb's activity with a focus on solving life's simple lighting problems. 

Smart Electric launched a Kickstarter project to fund the manufacturing and marketing of Smart Bulb, its first line of consumer lighting products.

The Smart Bulb Dimming Night Light™ fades from full light to night light in 20 minutes. Intended to solve the nightly dilemma of fear of darkness faced by parents of young children, the light shines brightly and dims to a night light level.   

Signaling for help in case of an emergency, the Smart Bulb Emergency Flasher™ will alert emergency responders to the location. It can also be used to indicate the location for a delivery or party. 

The three other shatter-resistant, game-changing bulbs rolling out this summer include:

  • Smart Bulb 4-Level Dimmer™ features four levels of light, including 100-, 75-, 50- and 25-watts, and one filament.
  • Smart Bulb 10-Minute and 30-Minute Auto Offs™ automatically turn unneeded lights off and provide an energy-saving solution for anyone who accidentally leaves closet, basement, garage, utility room or workshop lights on for hours or days at a time.
  • Smart Bulb Cycle Timer™ turns on every day at a chosen time, stays on for 6-hours, goes off for 18, comes back on the next day at the chosen time.

Tough coated and shatter-resistant, Smart Bulbs fit in any standard base socket making installation easy. In addition, Smart Electric's patented Soft Start© technology extends the life of its incandescent bulbs by two to three times the lifespan of the average light bulb. All Smart Bulbs are guaranteed for two years.

Smart Electric was established by brothers Stan and John Angelo, founders of a legacy lighting brand; Sam Johnson, the inventor of Smart Bulb technology and holder of over 40 patents; and JK Electric, one of the largest global light bulb manufacturers.   

"After generations of using traditional 'dumb' light bulbs that were limited in functionality and hiring electricians for custom installations, our team developed technology that delivers lighting solutions for consumers without the need for expensive remote dimmers and timers," said Smart Electric President and CEO Stan Angelo.

Future plans for Smart Electric include introducing its "Smart Technology" into other bulb types, including LED's, halogens, compact fluorescent lamps and Smart Lighting Fixtures.
