The best part: neither the bulb nor the plug requires a hub to operate.

Use your words

C by GE bulbs and smart plugs are voice-controllable by both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Just pair them up with your voice controller using Bluetooth and you can start issuing commands.

Verstaile app control

Things get even cooler when you download the Cync app. The app lets you control both the smart bulb and the plug. You can create custom schedules for your smart devices to have them match your routine, meaning you can have the bulb and plug turn off a few minutes after you leave home for work and turn on just before you return.

The app also allows you to control the bulb when you're away as long as it's paired with a voice assistant. Even if you're out backpacking and forgot to turn the light off before you left, you can rest easy. Just pull out your phone, open the app, and turn it off.

Features

Overview: The Cync (formerly C by GE) Color + Control Starter Kit contains a Full Color Smart Bulb and the Smart Plug. The standard-sized (A19) bulb connects directly to your Wi-Fi router without the need for a hub or bridge, which lets you control it through the Cync app, voice control (voice assistant required), or with Cync Smart Switches or Remote Controls. Simply add the bulb to your Cync app to control it individually, or group it together with other Smart Devices in your home. The Smart Plug turns any AC outlet into a "smart" outlet which can be controlled wirelessly from anywhere. The Smart Plug has a built-in Wi-Fi bridge that pairs to your home network, allowing you to turn on or off the connected device using your smartphone (and the Cync app), and set schedules to automatically turn on/off your plugged-in devices at certain times. In addition, you can control the smart plug with voice commands using Alexa or Google Assistant. You can add dozens of additional smart bulbs, smart switches, smart plugs, and other smart devices to your Cync app for control from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet. The plug is recommended for indoor use only. The Smart Plug's dimensions are Width 2.583", Height 1.497", Depth 1.455" (2.282" including plugs). The Full Color Smart bulb is 2.361" in diameter and 4.49" tall.

Bulb Specs: The bulb features a standard Edison E26 screw-in base, and provides nearly the same light output as a 60-watt incandescent bulb (800 lumens vs. 840 lumens). It produces a soft, warm light with a color temperature of 2700K, as well as millions of colors. The bulb uses only 9.5 watts of energy, with an estimated yearly energy cost of $1.14 (based on 3 hours use per day/11 cents per kilowatt hour). It has an estimated life of 13.7 years (based on 3 hours use per day). The minimum starting temperature is -20°C (-4°F).

Smart Bulbs: Cync Full Color Smart Bulbs connect to your Wi-Fi network (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n -- 2.4 GHz) -- no hub or bridge required. It also communicates via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Once you have added the bulb to your Cync app, you can perform the following functions:

  • Schedules: You can set your Smart Bulb to turn on or turn off on a set schedule. You can use the schedule to save energy, simulate occupancy when you're away, or turn on lights so you won't come home to a dark house. The schedule is set up and maintained in the Cync app.
  • Scenes: You can create lighting scenes using Smart Bulbs, Smart Switches, and Smart Plugs to set a mood or for certain activities. When you activate the scene, the lights programmed to that scene are turned on. If you are using dimmable or color-changing bulbs, you can set the desired brightness or color for the scene.
  • Out-of-home Control: Your Smart Bulbs can be turned on or off using the Cync app from virtually anywhere. You can manually turn individual or groups of Smart Bulbs on or off from your smartphone or tablet.
  • Voice Control: Cync Direct Connect Smart Bulbs can be paired to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant (sold separately) and controlled with voice commands.

Smart Plug: The Smart Plug's built-in Wi-Fi bridge operates on IEEE 802.11 b/g/n on the 2.4 GHz band. The plug has a manual on/off switch on the side, a single standard 3-prong plug, and a single 3-prong outlet with the following ratings:

  • 120V AC / 60Hz
  • Impulse Voltage: 1500 volts
  • Max 15A for general use
  • Max 1/3 HP motor

Cync App: The Cync app puts control of your home's lighting and connected devices into the palm of your hand. On your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, you can turn lights on/off, dim/brighten, or adjust color settings (requires dimmable and/or color changing bulbs). You can also create custom lighting scenes, such as Study Time, Movie/TV watching, Romantic Dinner, etc. Multiple devices can be grouped together so they can all be controlled with a single touch. Schedules based on your routine can be created, so your lights or plugged in devices turn on or off at a specific time. Control can be shared with other members of your household, or whomever you choose. The Cync app is compatible with devices running iOS 14.0 or later, and Android devices with OS 8.0 and up.
