Connected LED Bulbs for your Home and Garden Shed Lights

Brian Hinderberger

Presence Security literally opens up the door to affordable smart home solutions with its integration of a quickly growing list of devices that you can operate using our free Presence App. You can control these devices using the Presence Security gateway, eliminating both the cost and clutter of multiple hubs at your Internet router. Best of all, you can set rules that match your lifestyle needs if your armed Presence Security devices are triggered.

Control Your Lighting from Anywhere

General Electric has a very affordable connected LED bulb solution called Link. You can find GE Link bulbs at your favorite home and garden retailer and online. This energy efficient LED light uses 80% Less power than a traditional bulb and you can control it from anywhere with Presence App.

  • Remotely operate individual lights or groups
  • Sync with Presence Security
  • Automate lighting to fit your schedule and needs

The software developers at People Power, who created Presence App and Security, take great pride in delivering a great out-of-box experience, eliminating your guesswork and frustration of getting started. Simply screw in the GE Link bulb in the socket of the light you want to control, turn on the switch then go to your Presence App.

Here's How

  • On the home screen of Presence App tap 'Cameras & Devices.'
  • Tap the green tab on the top 'Add Devices.'
  • Scroll down and tap 'Add a GE Link Bulb.'
  • Screw the bulb into the light socket. Turn on the power and leave it on. Presence App will advance automatically and when the light is linked it will blink.
  • Presence App will then guide you to get the LED light set up with pre-made rules for situations that you may be interested in like; making help making it look like you are home when you are in 'away' mode, setting up the light for your pets, setting up on/off schedules, or setting up your own custom rules.

Automate your Backyard Lights with your Door Sensor 

If you have your Presence Security devices in place you can set up rules that turn on your lights after armed sensors are triggered. A great application idea is to set up a GE Link bulb in your backyard's home light and combine a rule with your Door Sensor.

Let's say you want the light to turn on when it's dark outside when you exit your home to your backyard.

  • At the Presence App home screen tap 'Create Rules.'
  • Find 'Rules for (your door sensor name)' and tap it.
  • Tap the green tab at the top 'Add Rule,' and create the sentence that says "If my (door sensor name) opens and the time is between 6:30 pm every day and 5:30 am then make my 'GE Link Bulb (Name)' switch on."

Set Up a Rule to Turn your GE Link Bulbs Off

Okay, you got the light to turn on but you decide that you don't want them on all night.

  • At the Presence App home screen tap 'Create Rules.'
  • Find 'Rules for (your GE Link Bulb name)' and tap it.
  • Tap the green tab at the top 'Add Rule,' and create the sentence that says "If the time is 12:00 am every day then make my 'GE Link Bulb (Name)' switch off." 

Now you can exit your home every day and the lights will turn on. Later on, that night they will automatically turn off. Congratulations. You've just made your backyard lights smarter and energy efficient! What will you do with your lights? You can combine rules with other great features of your free Presence App, like Geofencing!
