Smart Lighting Explained

Whether your preference is for Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant, smart lighting allows you to remotely control your home's lights, going beyond the limitations of conventional light bulbs!
Connected to your home's main power supply, smart lighting devices consist of a smart bulb that inside has an LED with internet capabilities. This means you can control it remotely, schedule your lighting, and customise it to suit your needs and requirements. 
There are several easy ways that you can connect smart lights. Some can connect via Bluetooth, with some using a central hub to link to via your Wi-Fi, often referred to as a bridge.
