WiFi light bulbs, wait, what? You heard me right, wifi light bulbs are totally a thing and they are one of the latest ways to save energy in your home. I’ll give you the quick 101 on how smart bulbs work. Essentially you get these LED light bulbs, screw them into your lamps and then connect them to an app on your smartphone or tablet. They use less power so they save both electricity and money in the long term, and they are super easy to control from anywhere you might be.
Let me give you an example, let’s say you and your family decide to take a last minute vacation and hop the train to San Diego. As you’re enjoying the view through San Clemente, your wife looks at you and asks “Did you turn the lights off in the bedroom room like I asked you to?” OK, so now before this little tiff can even ensue about the power bill and whether or not she’s trying to micromanage your life, you grab your phone, tap a button and with a smile say, “Yep. Look kids, dolphins!”
Do you use smart bulbs in your home? If so, what are the benefits that you have found over regular lightbulbs?
