Are Smart Lights Really Worth It?

  • The price of the bulbs are all pretty steep and it makes me wonder if they would really serve as a benefit for me. It would cost me about 2000 to outfit my home in Phillips hue bulbs. I would love to do it just need to justify the purchase.


  • I think that unless you’re into color control, smart switches have a lot more utility than bulbs.

    With any smart solution be careful though. The equipment can outlast the company’s cloud offerings, so be wary of startups and lesser known companies as they have higher risk of folding shop without a community strong enough to figure out alternatives. Bonus to longevity if you can fully control the device without needing cloud services.
