ilumi BR30

The ilumi BR30 Outdoor is the first outdoor-rated, weatherproof smart bulb.

ilumi introduces a new smart bulb, that extends its lightning products from indoors to outdoors. ilumi is backed by Mark Cuban and got funding through Shark Tank. The ilumi BR30 Outdoor is the first smart LED bulb for outdoors. Through its waterproof construction, MeshTek Bluetooth Smart connection and boundless list of features, the ilumi BR30 Outdoor can transform any dull outdoor patio, deck, backyard, front porch, pool house or gardening landscape or into a customizable living space.

The BR30 Outdoor’s IP64 rating means it is equipped to take on rain and splashes from all angles, allowing it to live outside.

The MeshTek Bluetooth Smart connection allows users to connect and control up to 50 ilumi Smartbulbs at once with a Bluetooth range of up to 150 ft., all from the convenience of a smartphone or tablet. The use of MeshTek technology eliminates the need for cumbersome hubs, restricting standard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.

The BR30 Outdoor is controlled via ilumi’s free app, available for iOS and Android. The app contains several experiences and features, such as Vacation Mode, which prompts lights to illuminate at scheduled times to provide additional peace of mind when a homeowner is away; Light Your Routine, which allows users to schedule sunrises or set mood lighting for any occasion; and Music Sync, which syncs a user’s favorite playlist to the Smartbulb, making lights flash to the beat of songs. ilumi will be updating its app with several new exciting features and integrations with IFTTT, Nest, Amazon Echo and more at the end of Q2 2016.

BR30 Examples

The energy-efficient BR30 Outdoor produces more than 1000+ lumens while only consuming 15 watts of power, the equivalent brightness of a 75-100 watt incandescent, at a fraction of the energy cost. This, coupled with its a ten-year lifespan and features that allow users to schedule when lights should be or off, make the BR30 Outdoor an energy saving tool.

Similar to its indoor counterparts, the BR30 Outdoor is color-tunable and can be set to millions of different colors. It is also designed with ilumi’s patented HyperLux LED technology, which provides best in class lighting brightness, efficiency and color quality for any shade of white to rich vibrant colors.

The BR30 Outdoor is available now for pre-order at and for $69.99 and will begin shipping summer 2016.
