Enjoy full control over light color and timing with the SmartFX smart bulb!
The SmartFX smart bulb is a new sensation for lighting enthusiasts, as well as pretty much anyone who likes amazing new inventions.
These smart bulbs can use Bluetooth and WiFi technology to connect with any smart phone or bluetooth device.
Now with a few touches on a screen, you can illuminate a room and fill it with virtually any color on the spectrum!
You may be wondering, “Why would I ever want to light my room the color purple?” Well, we are here to tell you that you are asking all the wrong questions. What you should be wondering is; why not?
With these bulbs you can set the tone for a party, control the mood for a romantic night alone with the spouse, or set a relaxing atmosphere for a quiet evening; the list goes on! If you ask us, the question isn’t why you would need a light like this, the question is why wouldn’t you want one!
Lets start off by talking about the smart bulb that uses WiFi. With this technology, you can literally connect to any network and control the lighting in your home from wherever you are. So for the frequent traveler, leaving the lights on in the home is no longer a concern. You can literally be halfway around the world, and still be able to take care of that light that you forgot to turn off as you were walking out the door.
Just simply pull out your smartphone, open up the Smfx app, and control your home’s lighting. It really is that simple! Imagine the money saved on the light bill, not to mention the other economic qualities of this bulb (but more of that later).
The Bluetooth technology bulb is very similar to the WiFi technology, however, the range of control is where the two differ. With the Bluetooth bulb, you still have wireless control at the touch of a finger, but with less range. While you may not be able to control your light while being halfway around the world, you can still change the settings from your couch, the kitchen, the floor, etc.
This is really why we love the wireless control anyways. No more getting up from your comfortable position to dim the lights. Now, with our Smart Bulb technology, it’s all in your hands.
The smart bulb can make a huge difference in your life, and even though it is just a light bulb, it is important to remember how pivotal that little invention is to our society. In the modern world, we take so many things for granted. Including, if not especially, the lighting in a room.
Our eyes take in our surroundings, and we then base how comfortable we are on how we feel physically, and how we perceive things visually.
So we think it’s fair to say that getting the lighting right is half of the battle when designing a space. The only problem is that traditional bulbs don’t have a lot of different options. You may be able to dim them, but you still don’t have the same precise control that is offered with our smart bulbs. With this kind of control, you have the luxury of getting your mood set perfectly every time.
Whether it be for a wild party, a romantic evening, a relaxing movie marathon, a night gaming, or a focused work setting, the Smart Bulb will set a tone for you, and you can focus on enjoying the event.
With all these advantages aside, there is still more to appreciate about the Smfx smart bulb. Since it is an LED, it will last anywhere from 25,000 to 50,000 hours.
At the best rate, that is about 49,000 more hours than an incandescent bulb will last you, which means that although you may pay a higher price to buy the bulb initially, in the long run the Smart Bulb will save you a lot of money. Additionally, LED bulbs generally will emit about 10% of the carbon dioxide that an incandescent would, which makes them environmentally safer.
Its not hard to immediately be sold on one of these amazing devices, but if you aren’t quite there yet, let us tell you some more about them. We’re sure you’ll like what you see.
1. Philips Hue Smart Light Bulb Starter Kit
This product is interesting since it’s not a smart bulb per-se. Rather, it’s considered a starter kit. As such, the Hue Smart Light Bulb Starter Kit is considered one of the finest on the market. The kit comes with four bulbs that deliver a nice, soft, white light that’s great for just about any purpose. The hue is adjustable between “warm white” all the way to “cool daylight.” With the kit, you can link together as many as 50 lights all to the same control system.
With that many lights, you don’t need a huge amount of options before the possibilities start to become pretty dazzling. You can set any changes you like to be controlled by a timer, or you can simply change brightness settings as you like. The Hue app that works for this kit is available for Android and iOS systems. Alternatively, you can also control these lights with an Apple HomePod, Google Home, or the Amazon Echo.
2. Sengled Element Classic A19 Kit
Another interesting smart light bulb kit, the A19 Kit is much more affordable than the smart Hue. It is an all-in-one package that includes an Ethernet cable, two bulbs, and one hub. These bulbs deliver an impressive 800 lumens using only 9 watts of energy. That makes these a nice choice for those who would like to save money not only on the purchase but on monthly electricity bills as well. Better still, these smart bulbs are rated to last for up to 25,000 hours.
They achieve this, of course, by using small wattages to power the bulbs. How, exactly, Sengled manages to make that much energy deliver so much light is a proprietary secret. They are able to connect with Amazon Echo and Google Home devices, but they are also able to be controlled by hand. That’s always nice when you don’t have your smartphone handy.
3. Sengled Wi-Fi Smart Bulb
For Sengled’s second appearance on our list, we have the Sengled Wi-Fi Smart Bulb. This starter kit is considered to be the most capable kit of its kind at the very low price point on Amazon and Best Buy. Better still, this kit connects to a 2.4Hg network without any need for a hub – an important part of how they manage to keep the price so low.
After you download the Sengled app, you’ll need to log in and connect your wireless device to wifi. These bulbs don’t come with any physical control points other than the app. This reduces convenience if, say, your phone is off or you’re in bed – but again, this is part of how they manage to offer this kit at a low price. With it, you get dimming options, and on and off control. If having to use your app every time seems excessive, the kit is also compatible with Amazon Alexa for voice control.
4. Wyze Bulb
An inexpensive bulb, the Wyze Bulb is the way to go if you’re looking to get into the smart light bulb market on a tight budget. The Wyze Bulb also comes in four-packs. These bulbs are fully adjustable with dimmer settings that range between 2,700k and 6,500k. Basic control settings are somewhat limited, but you can use the Wyze app, Google Assistant, or Alexa for more access options. The nice thing about this smart bulb is you can buy one to try it out and they up your game to the four-pack if it lights up your life.
5. Lifx Mini 800-Lumen Light Bulb
If you’re looking for more than just white light that can be dimmed and turned on and off in a number of different ways, the Lifx Mini might just be the smart bulb for you. These lights offer more than 15 million different customizable color options.
There’s no need to use a hub to connect it to your wifi, and they can be controlled using Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, or the Lifx app. The array of colors and settings is simply dazzling. They can be arranged on a schedule which is great for security purposes and even better for setting a far-out vibe in any room.
If 15 million color settings sound like a lot to wrap your head around, Lifx even offers custom color schemes to choose from. Using the amazing IFTTT channel, you can have your Lifx bulbs respond to different natural lighting conditions, times of day, and even the weather.
6. Phillips Hue Go
If you’re looking for a smart bulb that can travel with you, the Phillips Hue Go is the one for you. Simply plug it into any outlet wherever you are and pair it with your mobile device. Phillips Hue Go will serve as the ultimate bedside companion and enable you to read comfortably in any location.
This gentle 300-lumen bulb will last for up to 20,000 hours, making it the long-distance runner of smart light bulbs. You get seven different light settings that can be accessed by toggling the rear switch or by going through a control app or device.
It works with Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant. But it also turns on and off with the press of a button at the back of the external lamp that comes with it. It might seem a little pricey as currently listed on Amazon. But considering that it lasts as long as two lesser bulbs, it could be a great option.
7. Kasa Smart Wi-Fi LED Light Bulb
For most people, smart bulbs are attractive not for the many crazy things that lighting technology makes possible, but for their ability to work in the background, offering the desired abound of light and going completely unnoticed the rest of the time. With the Kasa’s Smart Wi-Fi LED Light Bulb, that’s what you get.
It delivers one of the widest ranges of dimming capability on the market and the 800-lumen bulb provided an unprecedented 22.8 estimated years of life. That alone makes it a winner in our book. But the Kasa bulb also uses 80% less energy than an ordinary bulb. It can be controlled using your phone or tablet, Echo devices, Google Assistant, Cortana, IFTTT control, or Nest. Now, for the really amazing part. The Kasa smart bulb is available on Amazon.
8. Lifx Mini White
he Lifx brand of smart bulbs makes its well deserved second appearance on our list with the Mini White. This compact bulb is ideal for use in a table-mounted desk lamp, or in any setting where you will be sitting close to the bulb. Using just 9 watts of energy, it is a real power saver, and with that super low power draw, it lasts just as long as the venerable Kasa bulb.
It can be used anywhere using Lifx’s own proprietary cloud computing access capability. It also works with iOS and Android apps, as well as voice command packages like the Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Alexa. It does not need a hub to connect to your wifi, making it not only truly “mini,” but also a real joy to use.
9. The Hearth Sleep Shift Smart Light Bulb
There’s no underestimating the importance of high-quality sleep. Our bodies heal during REM sleep, making it indispensable to your good health and wellbeing. With all of the amazing smart bulbs on the market, few are designed to actually help users get a better night’s sleep.
The Hearth Sleep Shift Smart Light Bulb stands alone in its capacity to deliver light that is soft enough not to disturb sleep, but pervasive enough to do its job as a light bulb. This is not a feature-dense bulb with complex functions and capabilities. It is a bulb that is designed with one purpose- to deliver light that lets you sleep well and fully.
It does this by simulating a natural sunset, triggering the natural, healthy sleep response at the desired time. This would be an ideal light for shift workers, habitual night owls, and anyone who faces challenges to regular sleep. It helps the user get back into regular circadian rhythms, and that’s ALL it does.
Even more amazing, it is able to produce a frequency of light that stimulates a calming response from the user. If you’re one of the millions of people who have used sleeping pills to get your sleep, imagine trading in your oral sleep aid for one that is made of pure, gentle light!
10. The Rhythm Starter Kit
Ever since the invention of the light bulb, people have used them to create dazzling light shows and showcase their creativity. When it comes to smart bulbs, there is plenty of room for just that. Enter the Rhythm bulb.
These lights are designed to create beautiful designs, run for long periods of time, and just look amazing. They come in the form of triangular-shapes panels that interlock and can display hundreds of different colors and patterns. The basic kit comes with nine light panels, a handful of connectors, and everything you need to create a dazzling display.
These innovative, decorative bulbs are long-lasting and use little power. They can be controlled using the Nanoleaf Smarter Series app, Apple HomeKit, Alexa, or Google Assistant. These decorative light panels are expensive, but they will last virtually forever and they can be rearranged in just about any way you can imagine. In terms of serving the market for decorative lights, there really is nothing else out there that does what the Rhythm lighting kit can do.
11. Maz-Tek Plug-In LED Night Light
Just about anyone with small children knows that it can be very difficult, if not impossible to get them to sleep without a reliable night light. But many parents are concerned about night lights possibly degrading the quality of their children’s sleep. The Maz-Tek Plug-In LED Night Light was designed with exactly this in mind.
These smart lights deliver soft light that responds to the ambient light of sunrise and sunset. That means you can plug it in and count on Maz-Tek to deliver light that will keep the children happy, but that will not keep them from achieving full REM sleep. These lights are rated to run for 22,000, and at such a low price point, that’s tough to beat.
12. SmartFX Smart Bulb
This is the WiFi connected bulb, Its design is a little different, but in a beneficial way. With this bulb, there is less of a glass surface, making the bulb itself a little more structurally sound. The traditional base allows you to use the bulb in any traditional socket, anywhere in your home or office.
This is the Bluetooth connected bulb. Its design is a little less futuristic than the WiFi bulb, however, the black coated stem helps to focus the light and prevent the bulb from overheating.
As you can see, both bulbs have a traditional base, making it possible for you to use the smart bulbs in any socket of your home or office. This versatility is unique for such a innovative device, making it practical for anyone to use.
