LIFX WiFi enabled multi-color LED bulb

 

A wireless LED bulb that can change colour and be dimmed, all from a smartphone app

Dimmable 17W LED bulb ; Multi-colour bulb ; Controllable from a smartphone app ; Easy to install

Big investment for a light bulb ; Have to wait for some features to come online

The LIFX LED light bulb can add a lot of colour to your life. It can emit light in a huge range of colours, it can be dimmed, you can switch it on and off without leaving your couch or bed, and all of this can be done through a simple-to-use smartphone...

Lifx gets an IFTTT upgrade

 

With new smarts and features, how's this high-powered color-changer looking in 2015?

Putting out bright, vivid, accurate colors and a full spectrum of natural tones at up to 1,000 lumens, the Lifx bulb boasts impressive lighting qualities. The new IFTTT channel adds some sorely needed smart functionality, too.

The bulb's app still isn't useful for very much more than basic color selection. Also, despite some progress, Lifx still lags behind Philips Hue in terms of third-party integration and overall user experience.

Lifx has slowly been getting better, and the recent addition of an IFTTT channel is its biggest step forward yet. If you're tempted by color-changing smart LEDs, it merits consideration.

LIFX bulb ( Wi-Fi, Pearl White)

 

The hardware is certainly sound with Lifx -- it's still one of the brightest and most powerful color-changing smart LEDs you can currently buy. The software, however, has always left a little to be desired. In my initial review, I was disappointed by...

LIFX LED Light Bulb

 

With the LIFX LED Light Bulb you can control color, brightness, and white levels using your iOS or Android device. They don't require a bridge or a hub and they deliver brilliant colors, but these bulbs are very expensive and the app is still a work in...

Bright. Robust colors. Easy setup. No bridge required.

Expensive. No IFTTT support. Some features are not yet finalized. Bulbs run hot.

Conclusion At around $100 per bulb the LIFX is the most expensive smart bulb we've seen, but its long life span, high luminosity, and excellent color quality make it a worthy investment. And unlike the Philips Hue and Connected By TCP lighting systems,...

LIFX smart light bulbs

 

The Australian-designed LIFX bulbs are available in bayonet, screw and downlight options. They extend 110 millimetres from the socket and run hot by design, so they're not really suited to small, enclosed fittings. They're 17-watt LED bulbs rated to...

Bayonet, screw and downlight options

Large bulbs; no wall switch integration

Controlling your lights using your phone is an impressive trick, but whether or not the novelty wears off depends on what other uses you find for the bulbs. If you use a daylight lamp for craftwork or have other specific colour requirements, then LIFX...
