How To Choose The Right Smart Light For Your Home

Smart bulbs are one of the easiest ways to make your home “smart.” They’re simple to use and offer a ton of benefits. The best part? There are tons of different options out there, so you can find the right smart bulb for your needs. But with so many options out there, how do you choose? We’re here to help! In this article, we’ll outline what you need to know before buying a smart bulb so that you can find the perfect fit for your home.

Find The Right Bulb For Your Light Fixture

  • Check the bulb compatibility. It’s important to find a smart bulb that works with your current light fixture. Many smart bulbs come in different shapes and sizes, so be sure to check the size of your existing bulb before you buy.
  • Check the brightness of your new smart light. Light fixtures can vary significantly in lighting power from room to room, depending on where they’re placed and how bright they need to be for tasks like reading or cooking vs ambient lighting only. If you have an area that needs extra light, such as a dark stairwell or hallway, look for a brighter model than what’s listed on our chart below; if there are parts of your home where less light would suffice (like an office), then choose a lower-power model instead!
  • Check out color temperature options when choosing which hue temperature best suits each space since some may not look good under certain lighting conditions due to their high Kelvin rating (see above table). For example: A warm white will make it easy on our eyes when we wake up while still being bright enough not miss anything during those early morning hours but if we use this same type in our kitchen then we end up feeling more tired after eating because there’s too much yellow coming off them.”

Look Into Energy Efficiency

Next, look at your bulb’s energy efficiency. It’s important that you use smart bulbs that will help you save money on your electric bill and keep it in check. Look for bulbs that are ENERGY STAR certified, which means they meet strict standards for reducing greenhouse gases. In addition, pay attention to the bulb’s power consumption (measured in watts) and life expectancy (measured in hours). The lower the wattage and lengthier life span of a bulb, the less energy it uses per lamp — which can cost you big bucks over time. Finally, make sure to consider how much each smart light costs by itself (as well as in comparison with other types of lighting). Most manufacturers list this information on their websites or packaging materials so keep an eye out!

In the end, you can’t go wrong with the right smart bulb for your home. Lighting is one of the best ways to improve your space and make it more stylish. Whether you’re looking for something that can be controlled from your phone or a certain color temperature, there are plenty of options out there. We hope we’ve given you some ideas about what kind of bulbs will work best for your needs!
