It's not that you're lazy; it's that you're always so busy. As soon as you get a chance to relax, you want to do it in style - and without the hassle of continually adjusting the amount of light in your home. That's what smart light bulbs are for right? After all, a wifi light bulb means you have complete control at your fingertips using your smart phone.

And, we are all familiar with that moment when you've decided to call it a night but you know the lights are on downstairs. Wouldn't it be so much easier if you could turn off all of the lights in your house without ever having to get out of bed or off the couch because they are smart light bulbs?

Thankfully, our homes are becoming smarter by the minute. And the latest tech craze has given us smart lighting. With the ability to control from your smartphone, tablet, or PC, smart lights give you total control over your in-home illumination without having to actually get up. That's why we worked hard to find the best LED light bulbs on the planet.

Smart lights are taking over!

And, you may as well move towards Smart lights bulbs given that those old-fashioned incandescent bulbs are on their way out (and have been since January 2014). If you decide to go the LED route (which we highly recommend), it makes perfect sense to give your home lighting an overhaul, doesn’t it?

Though the move towards Smart lighting isn’t yet in full swing, 72 percent of people polled by Osram Sylvania believe that Smart bulbs will eventually replace traditional light bulbs all together. And 86 percent believe that they have at least one room in their home that would benefit from Smart light bulbs.

According to their research Icontrol Networks, 70 percent are also excited about cost savings which is something Smart lights do rather well.

Think your Smart lighting system through carefully!

It’s possible the low rate of  those interested in smart bulbs for their convenience has to do with the stories like Stacey Higginbotham’s on Fortune.com (which is completely worth the read). She illustrates the challenges of integrating her Smart devices working across a number of platforms (Wink, Nest, IFTTT, and Amazon Echo).

The issues Stacey battled certainly haven’t steered her away from her Philips Hue Smart lights, but they illustrate just how important it is to consider the system and motivation behind any Smart light system before rushing out to purchase new smart light bulbs.

We’ve been pouring over reviews, specs, and giving a few lucky systems a try over the past few weeks to come up with the best way to customize your home's lighting using wifi light bulbs, so you can get your relax on. Don't leave without looking at our number one fave. It'll blow your mind (not your electricity bill).
