Among a series of smart home device announcements at the CES 2022, Sengled has unveiled a smart health monitoring light bulb. Compared to all smart light bulbs, this smart health monitoring light bulb is far more sophisticated, tracking your sleeping time including biometric measurement tracking.
The Smart Health Monitoring Light from Sengled is seriously cool and probably the most ambitious innovation I’ve ever seen. The best attempt to bring evolution to the basic smart light bulb has been the addition of bacteria-killing technology in recent years. However, home-safe germicidal features have shortcomings.

About the Smart Health Monitoring Light Bulb
The Smart Health Monitoring Light bulb focuses on your health instead of your home’s antibacterial defences. Using non-invasive sensors like radar sensors, the bulb can read heart rate, body temperature and other vital signs. Compared to a passive infrared (PIR) sensor, it allows reading through materials. And, the high-sensitive light bulb can detect different people, visualize their movement through textiles and other off-skin health tracking complexities.
According to Sengled, the Smart Health Monitoring Lights can be connected via Bluetooth mesh relying on several points of view for creating a virtual map to track your health in the home. To be clear, the light bulb doesn’t have any camera to see or record you. It just senses you.
The bulb can work alone, and impressively it can determine whether a person living alone has fallen or not. If he has fallen, it determines how much he gets injured. But what it will do after detection is still unrevealed. And, the product is in the development process. So, you have to wait for more details, and pricing too.
A low-powered radar system operating in the range of 2.4GHz that’s effective in the detection of location, movement, and velocity. It’s also capable of monitoring heart rate, breathing, and other vital signs for instance. Sengled offers its combined algorithmic mix to detect sleep quality, heart rate, breathing, and motion of occupants in the home.

Sengled’s smart health monitoring light bulb comes with top-of-the-line specifications like dual Wi-Fi, a Bluetooth chip for connecting to your local network and setting up a hub. It features a bright and rich Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 90-plus and allows you to control it from the app.
All the information is delivered to the Sengled app that can reach out to one of your selected contacts for help. According to the Sengled representatives, these detection features will work best with the multiple Sengled Smart Health Monitoring Light bulbs in your home. Because many numbers of bulbs can make a better FMCW radar mesh.
However, you can use the Sengled app to see all your health metrics more passively with the Smart Health Monitoring Light bulb. Moreover, it allows you to change its colours while indicating any vital sign falling outside the pre-set parameters. Suppose, the lights turn into a warning colour orange which indicates your changed movement to fall in great danger.
These bulbs also support Wi-Fi to connect and work with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Samsung SmartThings platforms. But Apple’s HomeKit is currently unsupported. In such a case, some questions arise regarding the accuracy of the bulb’s readings compared to other traditional health trackers like watches and rings that connect directly to your body.
This innovative smart health monitoring light bulb is under processing. So you have to wait until it comes on the market and is officially available by the company. Tii then stay tuned with us. As any update will come, we will inform you. I hope you will be helpful with this article. If you find it interesting, please share it with your friends.
