Lightbulbs as the “Glue” of the Smart Home
Chief Innovation Manager at GE Lighting on how LEDs are the new tech-adoption frontier
When electricity was first introduced more than a century ago, it took more than 30 years to achieve true adoption — while tablets took only more than two years to achieve this same adoption. Consumers are adopting new technology faster than ever.
At GE, we’re bullish on LED growth, and we’ve announced that we’re ramping up LED production to meet consumer demand. Today, ~15% of consumer sockets use LED, and by 2020 about half of all consumer sockets will be LED. And not long after, consumers will change the way they light their homes forever.
