Holiday Tech Gift Ideas 2016-2017: LIFX Smart LED Light Bulb

Many people wonder where to start, when turning their home into a smart home. And the most logical place, and easiest place, to start is with the lights. You can quickly replace all of the lights in a single room and then move onto the next room. But then the next question is, which smart light bulbs should you get? Well they all have their pro's and con's. But one thing that most of these have in common is the fact that they are compatible with Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant, or both.

The LIFX Smart LED Light Bulbs are a great choice, they are compatible with Amazon's Alexa (and should be getting support for the Google Assistant soon). These light bulbs are also a great choice because there is no hub needed, like with the Philips Hue light bulbs. The LIFX bulbs are controlled through an app on your phone, which is available for both Android and iOS. You can allow the app to set up a schedule for these bulbs and so much more. They are simple and easy to use, and some of the cheaper bulbs available right now.

Anyone that is looking to get started on a smart home, these LIFX Smart LED Light Bulbs would make a great gift for. In fact, they are small enough that they could even be stocking stuffers. Since these are LED lights, you should be good for about 2 years before you need to worry about any of the bulbs burning out on you, and LIFX also provides a two-year warranty with these bulbs. These are the BR30 bulbs, which are in color, so you're not stuck with the white color only.

With it being pretty close to Christmas already, many may be wondering if these light bulbs will arrive in time for Christmas, and the answer is yes. If you have Amazon Prime, you can order as late as Friday and they will arrive on Saturday (depending on the time you ordered on Friday) or Sunday. If you don't have Amazon Prime, that's not a problem. You can still sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime today and be able to use their free two-day or next-day shipping (which is $3.99 for most items, $8.99 for bigger items) immediately.
