You might remember our article last year about GE and Quirky, a collaborative partnership that develops smart home solutions. Well, they have launched another smart connected home product base on the WINK platform, called Link. Link is a smart LED Light bulb that has its own app that allows you to control it from your smart phone.
Last month GE expanded its partnership with Quirky, the creator of WINK, a connected device communication platform that makes it easy for us to access a range of connected devices anytime from our mobile devices. GE participated in Quirky’s $79M series D financing by investing an additional $30 million and holding a minority equity stake in Quirky. The partnership between both businesses started back in April and since then they have developed a number of connected home solutions which are now available in leading retail stores such as The Home Depot, Amazon and Best Buy.
