Imagine that you are tucked under the covers and ready to sleep. But suddenly you remember that you left the room lights on. The last thing you want to do is go downstairs, but you also don’t want to waste electricity. Now imagine something really cool: you have smart lights installed, so you just have to say “Alexa, turn the lights off” and you’ve turned them off without having to get out of bed. It’s magic! Smart bulbs are an easy and affordable way to add internet-connected intelligence to your home. Many allow you to schedule them to turn on or off at certain times and on certain days. That means you can use them as a gentle alarm clock or as a way to scare off any intruders when you’re out of town. That’s smart thinking.

Here are our favorite smart bulbs available right now.

These LED smart bulbs are also Bluetooth/Zigbee compatible, which means you can connect them to the internet with the companion app. And, yes, they sync with Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. Only $68 now with an on-page coupon.

Many buyers – over 29,000, in fact – have successfully integrated Philips Hue Smart Light bulbs into their homes, such as this reviewer: “I love these lights…I have six bulbs spread out between two bedrooms and a bathroom. I’ve never bothered to look at the instructions the lamps come with. If you’ve connected any smart devices to apps before, there’s not much you can do… I use the base wattage bulbs and they were perfect for me. At 100% it’s more than bright enough.”

Although these have no color, you can still adjust the white ambient range by up to 50,000 shades of warm white or cool light. Currently, a 15% off coupon on the page makes them a better deal than ever.

A five-star review said: “I’m very picky about light, as is my husband. During the day, I like brighter light and cooler temperature. At night, I prefer dimmer lighting. These lamps solved all the problems.” my problems. Installation was very easy. I downloaded the app and located the bulbs right away. This process took literally two minutes. Once in the app, you can change the bulbs’ color temperature and brightness! Better yet, you can have the connected lights so they both switch to the same settings, or you can change them individually.”

Forgot to turn off the lights before leaving the house? No problems! Just use the Cync mobile app to take care of everything from your phone. A good advantage: these smart LED light bulbs use 84% less energy and last 15 times longer than a regular light bulb.

GE Cync LED smart bulbs have a lot of fans. Said one: “I love these lights. They’re a great way to change the atmosphere of a room. Great for the bedroom, activity room, music room, smoke room, etc. They sync perfectly with Google and Alexa.” too! I didn’t have any problems. I must say the color is amazing too. So deep and beautiful. I definitely recommend it!”

We especially like this lamp’s holiday mode, which randomly switches the lights on and off to make it look like someone’s home. And, of course, it works with Alexa and Google Assistant.

“Wow, I’m blown away by this little light,” said a five-star reviewer. “You can dim/dim the light and even set it to pulsate. You can also set it to any color imaginable, across the full color spectrum. The app includes many cool preset features such as setting a romantic mood or switching between spring colors. I was really surprised by all these cool options.”

Use the Sengled companion app to control these lamps remotely from anywhere in the world – set timers, schedules, wake and sleep modes, and more. No need for hub; you can simply connect them directly to your home Wi-Fi network.

One buyer said: “Smart bulbs are very useful because they connect to your Alexa or Google assistant. The best part about them is that they change color just by giving instructions to your speaker. Another important thing to consider is that [you can] turn off and on the lights in the room just by giving instructions.”

“Paint” your room in up to 16 million colors and with multiple white light temperature modes. You can also create time-based color events or automate syncing across multiple Wyze devices. It offers sleep routines, so you can wake up or fall asleep to your own personalized sunrise or sunset.

“This lamp was so easy to set up with the app and my Google homepage, and I feel like it’s high quality for a low price,” read one review. “I had a different brand bulb in the past and it worked fine, but it was very dim even at 100% brightness. With this Wyze bulb this is not an issue; it has a MUCH brighter capability.”

Like many of the other smart bulbs here, you can set Yeelight according to schedules and timers, and you can do it remotely. Plus, it’s easy to install – just screw in and tap on the app to get started.

“These lamps are just fantastic,” said one reviewer who gave the lamps five stars. “No issues with quality, configuration or performance. They’re pretty bright considering the 60W equivalent.
