While you’re in the midst of switching all your incandescent light bulbs
out for more energy-saving light bulbs
and CFLs, don’t forget to look at smart LED light bulbs
as a part of your upgrade.
Smart lighting options include Wi-Fi light bulbs that can be controlled from an app on your smartphone to turn on and off, dim and even change the color of the bulb. There are many different types of light bulbs that fall in the smart lighting arena including globe- and candle-shaped bulbs, reflector bulbs and even bulbs with built-in Wi-Fi speakers.
