Smart bulbs are very low-cost hardware for trying smart homes. The price is relatively simple. Today, I will introduce the smart bulb as a whole.
Adjustable light color
The light adjustment is more abundant, and we can adjust the color of the light as we want. Very suitable as ambient light.
how to use
The operation mode of each bulb is different, and the connection mode of each bulb is different. Let’s introduce the common way.
Control by voice
Some manufacturers, such as Heelight, can be directly controlled by sound. After we install the App, the App controls the color of the light by sound, which is very convenient to use.
Control via WiFi
Some light bulbs can be directly connected to WiFi, so that after you install the App, you can remotely control it. However, if you connect directly through the network, there may be network risks. In addition, it is also affected by the server of the lamp manufacturer. For example, the server of Xiaomi is in China, and there will be a delay in use outside of China.
Control via Bluetooth
Some smart bulbs can use Bluetooth, but there are fewer such bulbs now.
Connect via zigbee, you connect to zigbee control
Most smart bulbs can be connected via ZigBee, but because our mobile phones do not support ZigBee, we need a Zigbee hub to connect.
Through the platform
If we have a lot of smart hardware, then we need to consider how to control all products. There are three common Google Assistants, Apple’s Siri, and Amazon’s Alexa. If you prepare multiple smart devices, you need to pay attention.
Rely on Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa platform, for example, add a photoelectric sensor, so that you can sense that when you wake up in the middle of the night, you can automatically turn on the light.
Light bulbs still need to be concerned about
The number of lumens represents the brightness of the bulb. At present, smart bulbs have different control ranges. Please purchase on demand.
Color temperature range
The controllable color temperature range of different smart bulbs is different, so you need to pay attention when buying.
The power consumption of the smart bulb is divided into two parts, one is the power consumption of the light, and the other is the power consumption of the communication module. When the light is off, it still consumes power. This requires attention.
