Lately smart lights have been becoming increasingly popular and one name which stands out in this area is Philips Hue. Everyone has their preference when it comes to light color whether it is soft white or daylight (which my wife prefers) but with smart bulbs you can literally paint your house with any color. It also provides you option to dim your lighting based on your mood. And you can do all this with your phone or talking to alexa/siri.
How is it different from regular lights?
• Provide 16million color option and 50000 shades of white
• Sync with music, movies and games
• Set light schedules
• Dimming /Wake up features
• Control your lights when your away from home
