For those who are slow-playing our societal shift toward fully-integrated automated smart homes — don't be scared. Sure, we know there are whole movies about computer-controlled houses turning on their owners, but seriously… we're way past that now. Maybe it's time to take that first tentative step into gearing up your home with some basic smart technology that's about as non-threatening as it comes.
The future is here — and it's illuminated by LED smart lights.
You can dip your toe into that smart-enabled world with a 2-pack of MagicLight Smart Colorful LED light bulbs.
Right out of the gate, the arguments for LED lights over old-school incandescent bulbs are so overwhelming that they're hardly worth comparing anymore. But know that LED bulbs consume 70 to 90 percent less energy than old bulbs and will keep shining through up to 50,000 hours of continuous use, a far cry from the 2,000 hour lifespan of an incandescent bulb.
And did we mention this light doesn't only cast that one off-white glow? No, the MagicLight can bathe your world in a color palette of over 16 million different colors. That's obviously a lot of color to process, but by syncing the light via WiFi with its phone app, you can use the wide-ranging color wheel to select just the right shade for your room.
You can go with any of a wide range of standard white lights, from warm, cozy white to crisp, invigorating white. Or you can get a little crazy and try out an energy-infusing red, a calming blue, a depression-killing yellow or a strengthening green.
You can automatically program them to simulate sunrise tones when you wake or turn off on their own when it's past everyone's bedtime. You can even save your favorite shades for instant access when you're in the mood — and they can all operate separately, be grouped together and controlled at once, or through voice commands to an Amazon Alexa or Google Home assistant.
You can try out what a multi-colored LED world would look like in your home and save a few bucks in the process by getting this 2-pack now for only $17.99, 14 percent off the regular price.
