LG today announced its first Smart Bulb that should get a part of your house tethered to your Android or iOS smartphone.

The bulb will connect to either an iOS or Android smartphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and should last for over 10 years if used for 5 hours a day. This should result in at least 80 percent energy savings according to the press release by LG.

Other than turning the lights on or off with a tap of a button, LG’s smart bulb will also feature a number of features including a security mode, timers and party mode. The security mode feature will let users turn on the lights remotely and make it look like the residents of the house are at home.

Users can also set brightness levels and timers, and use a party mode which will allow the bulb to blink following the beat of music playing on a user’s smartphone (although this feature will only be available for Android during launch).

The LG Smart Bulb will be available in the next couple of days for around AU$33 initially in South Korea, with international availability to be announced at a later date. The bulb will be compatible with devices running at the very least Android 4.3 and iOS6.0 and above.
