What Is a Smart Bulb and What Can I Do With It?
A smart bulb is typically a light bulb with some style of wireless communication (i.e. Z-Wave, Bluetooth, or WiFi) built-in. This wireless communication gives you and your lighting new monitoring and control functionality beyond that of traditional light bulbs.
Using Your Smart Bulbs:
With the added wireless capabilities or your smart bulbs, you can remotely adjust your home’s lighting with the tap of a button in your mobile device; the perfect solution for that person that keeps leaving all the lights on. You can view the activity of your bulbs anytime within the app to know when they were turned on or off. Smart bulbs, however, really shine when you utilize Scenes, Schedules, and Automations to add ease and convenience to your everyday routines. Ideas for automating your smart bulbs could include:
- Turn your bedroom lights on at 8am
- Set your living room lights to 10% when you activate your Movie Scene
- Turn your lights on, off, or set brightness with your voice using Google or Alexa
- And so much more...
Smart bulbs give you the ultimate control over your home’s lighting. The best part about smart bulbs is the installation. All you have to do is screw them into an existing light socket; no wiring or professional installation required.
