I was looking into buying a Smart light bulb one with Wifi capabilities. I know there are some brands out there like Hue, TP-Link, etc… that offer some Wifi capability.
I don’t care about the colored type of bulb. I just want a white color type is fine. I want to be able to turn on the light before I come home when it is dark outside. I am looking for general information. I am looking for stability and reliability with Smart Light bulbs whether it is using a “hub” to connect to the Wifi or using a light bulb with built in Wifi. Perhaps, using a Smart Switch is better.
- Hub with Wifi—Best, Good, Bad (Router-----HUB----Lights)
- Light bulb with Wifi----Best, Good, Bad (Router------Lights)
- Smart switch with Wifi—Best, Good, Bad (Router----Switch----Lights)
Here on the East Coast, it gets dark at 4pm. If I am out and I forget to put a light on, I just want to simply go on my phone and turn it on. I get some status on the phone that it is on. Again, I am looking for reliability and which is the best choice.
