A Major Milestone: 10 Years of Award-Winning Smart Lighting
Sengled, the smart lighting expert, celebrates a decade of innovation and illumination
It’s confetti time around the Sengled campus in Georgia: 2022 marks our 10-year anniversary of smart lighting.
Looking back, it’s amazing how far we’ve come and everything that’s transpired in the past decade. What started with the launch of our first smart speaker bulb in 2012 has evolved into an award-winning, industry leading smart lighting expert. We’ve won 16 Innovation Awards, including CES recognition annually since 2015. Earlier this year, we picked up our 10th CES award. Ten awards in 10 years: a great accomplishment.
How did we get here? We value innovation, design, and craftsmanship. We believe the lightbulb can be continuously reinvented to make life better. Our products are meticulously crafted to ensure quality, and designed to be visually appealing, functional, and easy to use. Sengled bulbs look great and are built to last. Easy. Versatile. Brilliant. That’s how we get it done every day.
2012: A trip down memory lane
Gangnam Style became the biggest one-hit-wonder of the decade…maybe the century. The fun pop song by South Korean singer Psy absolutely overtook the airwaves and the internet, at one point being recognized by Guinness World Records as the most liked video on YouTube.
Along the way, we’ve hit a few other key milestones in our company’s history.
2014 – Launched our hub-based smart lighting line, which today allows you to illuminate your entire home with up to 64 smart lights and devices using our Zigbee Smart Hub. This is a great option for power users looking to add many products from the smart light experts.
2018 – Added Wi-Fi to product offerings, a great option for people new to smart lighting: no hub required. Once set up utilizing your existing home Wi-Fi network, it’s easy to control or schedule your lights to create just the right mood in any room.
2020 – Added Bluetooth Mesh technology, allowing you to reach every corner of your home with smart lighting using this ubiquitous technology. Setup is a breeze with the Alexa app or compatible Echo device, offering a convenient, plug-and-play experience that provides voice-control functionality.
Leveraging those important moments, a few hundred thousand hours of hard work, and a team spirit dedicated innovation, we boast a large portfolio of high-quality products at an affordable price.
