LAS VEGAS--()--Misfit, makers of Shine and Flash fitness and sleep monitors, today launched their second smart home product, Misfit Bolt, a wirelessly connected color-changing light bulb that lets users personalize their home lighting.

“For us, a smart light bulb is not just a vessel for electronic components. It was about enabling our connection to light from darkness. Bolt gives a new twist to an ordinary light source and turns it into a memorable experience”

With Bolt, users can transform their environment by choosing from millions of color combinations, or create beautiful lightscapes from premade scenes or scenes based on photos they choose. Bolt can also be used in combination with Misfit’s sleep sensing products to gently wake the user with a sunrise simulation during her lightest stage of sleep.

Bolt is constructed from a glass dome with a proprietary light-diffusion coating to enable wide-angle light dispersion with no hot spots, and a gorgeous aluminum body that doubles as a heat sink. A warm white light, Bolt is bright enough for everyday lighting while also being able to make a bold statement in any room with its color changing features. Unlike other smart bulbs on the market, Bolt does not require a hub and is easy to set up.

"For us, a smart light bulb is not just a vessel for electronic components. It was about enabling our connection to light from darkness. Bolt gives a new twist to an ordinary light source and turns it into a memorable experience," said Diana Chang, lead designer for Bolt.

Bolt can be controlled with the Misfit Home app, to be released on iOS and Android. Bolt is compatible with the sleep sensing functionality of Misfit Shine, Flash, and Beddit, letting users wake up in their lightest stage of sleep. Users will also be able to control Bolt using Logitech’s Harmony Home remote and app.

Priced at $49.99, Misfit Bolt is now available for pre-order on Misfit.com and is on display at International CES at the Misfit booth (#73521, Tech West Sands Expo).
