ambiLite ‘Simple’ is a WiFi enabled, dual colored (warm yellow or cold white only), energy saving LED bulb with mood lighting that can be controlled from your smartphone.

What is the "Genie"?

ambiLite ‘Genie’ is a small device that acts as a gateway to connect to and control your Nabe or Simple smartbulbs.

It works through your WiFi network and is a very low-power device that needs to remain on for the app to control the smartbulbs.

What are the ambiLite app requirements?

You can use Android or Apple smartphones to operate the ‘Nabe’ and ‘Simple’ bulbs. ambiLite provides applications for both Android 4.2+ and iOS 6.0+ devices.
