Sengled Smart LED Starter Kit
Sengled gets somewhat dominated by the Philips Hue brand, but where it really wins is the price tag. It’s no secret Smart Bulbs can save you money, but why not save a little more money and go with a brand which has barely any less features?
Sure, they’re not at bright as the Hue bulbs generally, but they’re fantastic for any new Smart Home user who doesn’t want 100s of Smart Home Apps on their phone for various third-party chinese bulbs.
Philips Hue Bulbs & Light Switch
We’ve been using Philips Hue for around 2 years now and have 0 complaints in regards to using it in a small household. Yes, they’re quite expensive, yes once you’re in the ecosystem other products are expensive, but, what it offers in terms of brightness and flexibility is what attracted me.
