Even in my less-than-1000-square-foot apartment, I often find myself cursing at my electronics when they fail to “reach” the wireless home network (aka my WiFi). I’ve considered purchasing a WiFi extender, but honestly the thought of hooking up yet another electronic device in my humble abode sounds like a nightmare. I cannot deal with any more wires, let alone find an actual outlet to plug the thing into.
So how can you get the best WiFi coverage at home and avoid the “dead zones?” How can you really get the best out of your WiFi network? Believe it or not, the answer is in this 4.8 inch LED light bulb.
Introduced by Sengled earlier this week at CES 2015, Boost is the world’s first WiFi extending light bulb. Talk about fitting a lot in a little package. This thing is pretty cool and SUPER (I cannot stress this enough) easy to install. As easy as 1, 2, screw. The bulb installs like every other light bulb you’ve ever installed. Easily.
The bulbs boast two built-in antennas for high throughput data exchange rate of maximum 300Mbps, and is compatible with most smart phones, tablets, and computers. Remote LED lights have on, off, and dimming controls individually or you can group the bulbs together.
Want WiFi in your man cave? The garage? Your craft room? Boost can make it happen. Add the bulbs anywhere in (or outside) your home to gain connection and, obviously, to light your space, too. Plus, download the corresponding Boost app which pairs nicely with the bulb(s) so you can always stay connected. Literally.
