Lifx Color 1000 BR30 Wi-Fi LED Smart Bulb review

 

If money were no object, I'd have Lifx Color 1000 BR30 LEDs all throughout my home. They're bright, they're efficient, and they offer better-looking colors than Philips Hue, plus comparable smarts thanks to integrations with the Nest Learning...

The Lifx Color 1000 floodlight LED is an Alexa-compatible smart bulb with full color controls, robust IFTTT support, and a superb design.

$50 per bulb is still prohibitively expensive, especially since you'll probably need more than one of them. They also won't work with Apple HomeKit.

Prices are still high on these kinds of color-changing LEDs, but this Lifx floodlight is one of the best. It's worth the splurge if you're into high-tech novelty lighting.

LIFX Color 1000

 

The LIFX Color 1000 is a bright, colorful, and easy-to-use smart bulb that connects via Wi-Fi without the need for a hub, but it comes at a steep price.

Bright. Rich colors. Easy setup. No hub required. Amazon Alexa, Nest, and IFTTT integration. Highly responsive app.

Expensive. No Apple HomeKit compatibility.

Conclusions The LIFX Color 1000 bulb is brighter than the Philips Hue and just as easy to control. And aside from HomeKit support, it nearly matches the Hue ecosystem in terms of big-name third-party integration. But $60 is a lot to pay for a single...

Lifx Color 1000 Smart Bulb

 

Well, the Lifx Color 1000 beats them.

The Lifx Color 1000 is brighter and more efficient than the first generation of Lifx bulbs, and the colors are just as true. The easy-to-use app offers a good number of features, and integrations with IFTTT, SmartThings, Nest, Windows, and Amazon Echo...

At $60 per bulb, Lifx is still an awfully expensive smart light. It also won't work with Apple HomeKit (or with Siri) like Philips Hue bulbs will.

This flat-topped smart bulb is the most well-rounded color-changer money can buy -- and a superior option to Philips Hue.

LIFX Color 1000 review: One of the best smart bulbs gets brighter and better

 

LIFX was our runaway favorite bulb in 2015, and the company has hardly been resting on its laurels in the year and a half since. Today's LIFX bulbs are smaller, cheaper, and brighter, but are just as easy to install and use as the earlier ones.

Hue who? Lifx is the color-changing bulb to beat

 

For years, Philips Hue's high-profile connected LEDs have been the color-changing smart bulbs to beat.

Not in itself a new item but apart from the normal screw fitting style available for this sort of Wi-Fi bulb this unit also comes with bayonet fittings far more often found in UK home and because these bulbs are thicker after the thread they often will...
