Sylvania Ultra iQ LED BR30 Bulb

The Sylvania Ultra iQ LED BR30 Bulb is warm, white, and bright—emitting less heat and consuming less energy than traditional 65-watt incandescent bulbs! This ZigBee light bulb also doesn’t emit any UV radiation, so the color of your furnishings and artwork will remain vibrant.

Use SmartThings to automatically dim the Sylvania bulb or turn it on and off when activity happens in your home.

Note: The Sylvania Ultra iQ LED BR30 Bulb is compatible with the SmartThings Classic app.
