Long story short: Yes!

For those of you who like a little more proof in your pudding, here's why smart light bulbs are totally worth it:


Smart lights are easy to use. They give you the power to control the lights with your voice, your phone, or your computer.

Mood altering

Smart lighting lets you create different moods or scenes based on what you're doing or how you're feeling. For instance, if you want to relax with a good book, you can choose a dimmer, warmer light. If it's time to party, you can light up the house in the vibrant colour of your choice.

Peace of mind

Smart bulbs are a great way to beef up your home security. With the tap of an app, you can control your lights from anywhere—work, the rink, even a beach. If you worry about going away for a long period of time with no one to watch over your place, simply turn lights off and on at different times of the day to give the appearance you're home. What's more, some smart bulbs have motion sensor options, so even the slightest movement will trigger the lights.

Energy savings

Think of all of the times you've left the house but forgot to turn off your lights. With smart bulbs, you can turn them off with your phone from anywhere.

While smart lighting is more expensive up front, according to an article in Home Selfe, LED lighting uses less energy than traditional incandescent lighting and lasts up to 25 times longer. In other words, they'll save you in the long run. That makes smart bulbs a great way to cut down on energy usage and do your part to protect the planet.
