Smart Bulb or Smart Switch: Does it really matter?


Smart lighting is one of the best ways to use smart home technology. But doing it well takes a little planning. Part of that planning is deciding when to use smart bulbs and when to install smart switches.

Some people may try to convince you that you need to have all smart bulbs or all smart switches. Don’t listen to them! I have lots of experience using both devices. Often times, an even better result can be achieved with a mix of both.

Lots of experts recommend smart switches over smart bulbs because they are easier to use. However, without smart bulbs, you won’t get the awesome benefit of color changing or white-shifting lights.

You can debate the pros and cons of smart switches and smart bulbs, but I don’t want to choose one or the other. I want the best of both. I want to be able to combine the cool, color changing effects of smart bulbs with the convenience and usability of smart switches.

Can it be done? Of course!

Smart bulbs can bring dynamic, mood enhancing color into any room. Whereas smart switches make a more user friendly experience for you and your family.
