Drift to Sleep with This Smart Bulb

Having trouble sleeping? You aren’t alone. According to Saffron, nearly 46% of people don’t feel rested in the morning. That’s why they created Drift™ Light, a smart bulb featuring three modes that can be controlled with the flip of a light switch.

Artificial light can have a negative effect on sleeping habits, especially blue-toned bulbs that suppress melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone. Using warmer-tones, the Drift Light works as a normal light bulb but can also be set to slowly dim over time – 37 minutes to be precise – to mimic the average time that the sun sets. The extended dimming effect causes your body to relax, unwind, and prepare for a good night’s rest.

The Drift Bulb also features a moonlight function, originally created for children who prefer to sleep with a night-light. This function emits a glow just bright enough to find your way when the rest of the house is dark.

For those looking to test out a connected home, the Drift Light is a great place to start. It works with any standard light bulb socket, and you’ll only need a light switch to operate this smart bulb. Flip the switch on or off for regular bulb function, flip it twice to start the dimming function, and three times will set the bulb to moonlight mode.  There are no apps or need to connect wirelessly.

The Drift Light is available at http://drift-light.com/ for an introductory price of $29.
