SYSKA LED has announced a new range of lighting solutions in the IoT category designed for integration with Amazon’s Alexa ecosystem with the first being the SYSKA Smart Table Lamp. The lamp is set to go on sale first in India via Amazon and Flipkart, although the company hasn’t indicated when or if it will become more widely available. Priced at 3,699 INR – around $54 – the SYSKA Smart Table Lamp offers a wide range of options in a sleek and modern flexible form factor. That flexibility enables adjustments to set the flow of light in nearly any direction. Meanwhile, Wi-Fi is built into the package, enabling interactions via Alexa’s voice controls for choosing between three color tones across three stages of dimming. Since it fits neatly into Alexa’s smart light category of devices, users should also be able to include SYSKA’s latest offering in Alexa routines. That means specific settings for the lamp can be selected and activated alongside other smart home integrative technologies using user-set voice commands or based on other factors such as time of day.
In terms of specifications, the tones available with the SYSKA LED Smart Table Lamp range in temperature from 3000K to 6000K. Aside from the more fine-tuned settings, the new SKYSKA lamp also includes two preset ‘Mood’ settings that allow quick switching between a bright daylight for reading or dimmer warm tones for ambiance. Moreover, the bulbs built into its new lamp are rated to last for approximately 30,000 hours. That’s equal to just under three and a half years and SYSKA provides a 2-year warranty to back up its claim. SYSKA claims its lamp can produce a savings of up to 90-percent with regard to energy efficiency as well. That’s compared to the compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) bulbs commonly sold as an alternative to traditional incandescent lighting. Continuing in that environmentally-friendly vein, the lamp is completely recyclable, according to the company, and doesn’t contain the toxic materials used in traditional lamps or generate UV radiation.
Moving beyond the new SYSKA lamp’s voice interactions, buyers can also interact with the lamp via more traditional means. That’s thanks to the inclusion of feather touch controls in the base which can be used to turn the lamp on or off and to adjust all of its settings. As of this writing, the company hasn’t revealed a timeframe for further entries into its new range of lighting solutions.
