The Sengled smart Wi-Fi LED is an inexpensive but amazing smart LEDbulb. The best part of this bulb is that it requires no hub and runs on Alexa amazon and Google home devices. The Sengled mobile app makes controlling of the lights very easy.This smart bulb connects to Wi-Fi. From the app we can adjust the brightness of the bulb and the color temperature of the bulb as well.
The app is very handy and you get 16 million color options which can be changed from the app itself. Sengled is one of the few new products in the line of smart home devices. I was thinking of adding colors to my art studio and got myself a set of Sengled lights and devices namely, Extra light, 1500 lumen bulb and the multi-color light strip as well the multi colored kit and the 800 lumen smart LED bulb.
Sengled now carries the wider line of smart home lighting devices including 800 lumen smart LED bulbs, lighting strips and even motion detector. Like most companies making smart LED lights, Sengled has its own dedicated app which allows great deal of customization within the app for lighting.
KEY FEATURES OF SENGLED SMART Wi-Fi LED:
- Reasonably priced
- Connects to Wi-Fi network
- Can be controlled with your phone or voice
- No hub required
- User friendly mobile app
- Supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant
- Super easy installation
- Flawless performance
- Excellent color quality
Within the app, lights can be figured into groups and rooms or specific schedules for wake and sleep time. You can even set the timing if you want the light to turn off at a specific time. If you want even more control, like the voice control the Sengled devices can also be set up with Amazon Alexa, Google assistant and Samsung smart things.
Unfortunately, Apple home kit isn’t on this list. Packaging seems to be very simple with the Sengled lights. You get an instruction manual with the lighting strips. But, with the bulb and the hub, you get a card that directs you to Sengled’s official website where you can get the instructions for its setup. Once you get the app downloaded, the installation and setup is very simple. With the hub included, the multicolor A 19 kit is a good starting place for a Sengled system. Starting at $69, the included hub grants the control of all of the Sengled’s devices from an iOS or an android device. The two multi-color A 19 bulbs in the kit can put out 800 lumens and you can choose between 16 million colors.
At 1500 lumens, the brand new extra light LED bulb lives upto its name. However, it does not feature the 16 million color options like the multi-color bulbs. Extra bright is available in day light at 5000 degrees kelvin and soft white at 2700 degrees kelvin. Once you are done with installing the app you can simply navigate to the devices section, click the “plus” sign and follow the directions.
Typically by scanning the QR code on the device, setting it up takes just a few seconds. The light will flash a few times when the connection has been made. Having wireless control over your lights is a pretty great thing to have. I have set a lot of Sengled’s lights in my art studio and I love the ability of turning everything on or off with the push of a button and change the color of the room by asking Google or Alexa to do so. So far, everything seems to be seamless and fluid. Set up was a piece of cake and the ability to change the settings with the Sengled app is icing on the top. Overall, I am pretty impressed with the Sengled LED lights.
In my opinion, the only downside of the Sengled app is the lack of the Apple home kit. If you are in the Apple ecosystem then you are not going to be very happy about this issue. Philips Hue is a strong competition for the Sengled smart bulbs but they come with a higher price tag. The Sengled bulbs and devices are much more affordable.
