Is there anything more frustrating than a WiFi dead zone? Moving into a new office or apartment now comes with the added anxiety of wondering if you’ll be able to rage-tweet from the toilet.

The geniuses at Sengled are tackling this modern crisis with a line of WiFi-connected LED light bulbs that screw into standard fixtures.

Its Boost bulb stretches signals “up to 100 feet,” effectively extending a connected workspace or making sure every nook and cranny in the century-old walk-up you just rented has access to Netflix. If you’re the sort that needs a bit of music in the background, Sengled also makes Bluetooth-enabled bulbs with twin JBL speakers to brighten your mood.

Retails for $49.99.
