5 Creative ways to use a Smart LED Bulb

Smart bulbs, to put it simply, are lighting fixtures that can be controlled wirelessly. These are different from regular LED bulbs as you can eliminate the need to control them manually. With a smart bulb, you can control it using a remote or through a mobile device app. If the bulb is dimmable or color-changing, you can also control the brightness and color options with ease and without lifting anything more than a finger.

1. Automate your lights

If turning lights on and off seriously drives you crazy, you can make different schedules for your lights to turn on and off. Being able to pull out your phone to turn on the lights is a benefit of having Smart LED Bulbs, navigating a simple app can certainly be a great advantage (especially compared to just flipping the switch like the good old days).

There are the standard features like having your lights turn on at sunset, but then there are also dozens of recipes that I promise you’ve never imagined before. Flash the lights when your favorite sports team scores. Timing your lights to come on before you get home from work. Timing your light to come on while you're on vacation.

 2. Have lights that aren’t on an automation schedule? That's ok, you can turn them on or off with the app manually 

Do you have lights that aren’t on an automation schedule? That's ok, because now you can use the app to turn them on or off manually. It’s as simple as opening up the app and selecting which lights you want to control. You can also choose what type of light bulb your fixtures are so we know how much power they take. This way, when it is dark outside and you are coming home from work outside of your normal time you can open the app and turn on your porch light. Its time for bed, you don't need to worry about getting out of a comfortable position in bed just to go turn off a light!

3. Change the colors of your lights for a festive way to dress up your home for special occasions

4. Use the speaker option on you LED bulb to add some of your favorite music throughout your home

The speaker option on you LED bulb means that it has to be connected and working with another device like a smart phone or tablet in order for this feature to work. It is not a standalone speaker like some other products out there, so if you are looking for something that does all of the above plus play music then we would recommend our LED speaker smart bulbs.

5. Don’t let people know you are out of town by using the app to turn your lights on and off throughout your home randomly while you are away

You and your family can easily use the app to turn lights on and off throughout your home randomly while you're away, so it will seem like someone is inside even if they aren't. No one has to know that you are out of town! This simple technology is great for deterring burglars and help keeping your home safe while you are away. There are the standard features like having your lights turn on at sunset, but then there are also dozens of recipes that I promise you’ve never imagined before. Flash the lights when your favorite sports team scores. Timing your lights to come on before you get home from work. Timing your light to come on while you're on vacation.
