Lighting company Sengled today announced the launch of several new smart lighting products, including Wi-Fi Video-Sync TV Light Strips, Wi-Fi Outdoor String Lights, and the Wi-Fi Portable Lamp.

The WiFi TV Light Strips are designed to extend what's showing on the television set to the wall behind it for a more immersive entertainment experience. The lights are designed to react to content from streaming services, gaming systems, and more, with the colors on different areas of the screen matched to sections of the LED strips.

Sengled's new Wi-Fi Outdoor String Light is designed for outdoor patios, gardens, and similar spaces, offering up 48 feet of bulbs. Each light bulb can be customized to a different color, with millions of color combinations available.

The Wi-Fi Portable Lamp features a rechargeable internal battery and it can be moved to wherever lighting is needed, making it perfect for power outages, outdoor camping, and similar situations. The Portable Lamp offers different color effects, dimming, and options like flickering candlelight.

Later this year, Sengled also intends to introduce a Wi-Fi LED Essential Oil Diffuser Light, a Smart Health Monitoring Light, and Zigbee Window, Door, and Motion sensors. Sengled's Zigbee products are HomeKit-compatible, but the devices outlined in this article do not work with HomeKit.

Sengled's TV Light Strips, Outdoor String Lights, and Wi-Fi Portable Lamp are set to launch in the second quarter of 2022. The TV Light Strips will be priced at $120, the String Lights will be priced starting at $80, and the Wi-Fi Portable Lamp will be priced starting at $60.

You know, sometimes when I’m watching videos and its dark I’ll turn on the flashlight and it seems to help lesson eye stain.
Apple should do something similar with the flashlight and have it’s hue change based on what your watching. :rolleyes:

“making it perfect for power outages”
Except my Wi-Fi router isn’t battery powered…

Don’t know if they solved this here but my tv was so thin that a govee camera could not attach on the top and the power button was on the bottom so I couldn’t set it up.

CES makes Mother Earth cry.

Mountains of junk that few will buy but will live in landfills for 1,000+ years.

Well yeah but why would your priority during a power outage to be to change the color of your battery light?! Surely your priority would be simply to be able to see again! Assuming it’s dark of course…

I'm curious about the TV product but it doesn't seem to have HMDI in like Dreamscreen 4K did. It has a mic for "dynamic sync" but if it doesn't match the colors on screen then that just doesn't do it for me. I was a fan of the Philips Ambilight TVs back in the day and have sorely missed having them in the US. Dreamscreen 4K is pretty good, but they are now defunct. At least these things are getting more prevalent and prices are dropping...

I went to the site, and only see an audio synch option. I do not see where it recognizes the screen activity to dynamically change the backlighting color to correspond with the screen‘s color output. Maybe i missed something on the specs and product description.

In the future, I hope MR links to a proper product announcement/blog post/press release. The link in the article just dumps you onto the company’s website and there’s no mention of these there…

been waiting ages for a tv light strip that does this but no thread? why?
The best you can do right now is power the TV light-strips via the TV's USB port.
Then power down the TV (via homekit if it's a homekit TV, or a smart plug) as appropriate (eg when you leave the house).

That's what I do and I'm happy with it.
