The smart light bulb category is heating up. Following entries by LG and Philips, Samsung announced Thursday that it is now in the game of making your lamps and ceiling lights into peripherals.

The light bulbs have a lifespan of 15,000 hours, which Samsung said should cover 10 years. Regular LED bulbs are rated for 25,000 hours.
