Smart light bulbs can deliver all colors of light, simulating everything from a bright daylight to a warm candlelight glow (or even pink or blue for parties).They can be controlled wirelessly from across the room or the other side of the world and they can work in concert with other smart home devices. But not all smart bulbs are created equal.
When choosing smart light bulbs for testing, we selected models that received high marks from critics and consumers alike, could produce any color of light and worked with other smart home devices. Our reviewer then used the bulbs in day-to-day routines and set up modes for entertaining.
After four months of testing, our reviewer found the Philips Hue 3rd Generation bulbs to be the best smart light bulbs, with excellent usability and extensive support for smart home systems. Find out more about our pick for the best smart light bulb in our story on Techlicious.
