Lifx Mini review: Still a great color-changing smart bulb (and still too expensive)

 

The Lifx Mini is a terrific smart bulb that works with Alexa, Siri, IFTTT, and the Google Assistant. We just wish it cost less.

The Lifx Mini puts out plenty of light, and offers all of the colors, features, and integrations that you get with standard-size Lifx bulbs at a lower cost.

At $45 each, the color-changing Mini bulbs are still awfully expensive, and the design still doesn't cast enough downward light. The pairing process, newly revamped to align with HomeKit, is also a little more confusing than it ought to be.

These are excellent smart bulbs, but it's tough to justify the splurge unless you catch them on sale.

LIFX Mini smart bulb series review: Not quite as bright, but smaller and cheaper than the LIFX A19

 

We like the color-tunable bulb best, but all three are good values.

Smaller design allows bulbs to fit in more fixtures ; Light is delivered more effectively to the sides of the bulb ; More reasonably priced ; The cheapest LIFX bulb you can buy ; Arguably a better design than the standard LIFX A19 bulb ; High-quality...

Less powerful than the super-bright LIFX A19 ; Still a bit of an ugly bulb ; Still considerably heavier than competing bulbs ; Very little in the way of extra features ; Pricier than the competition ; Considerably heavier than competing bulbs ; Limited...

“Day & Dusk” is LIFX’s shorthand for a white smart bulb with tunable light. This bulb is effectively the same as the LIFX Mini White, only instead of being locked to a color temperature of 2700K, it can shift through a modest range: 1500K to 4000K. The...

Lifx Mini Smart Bulb Review: Fun Features, Tricky Setup

 

The Lifx Mini bulbs are a good option for smart-home owners who have experience setting up smart bulbs and have other smart-home devices installed. The bulbs are easy to integrate with HomeKit, Alexa and Google Assistant, but they're difficult to set...

No hub required ; Works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit and more ; Includes many smart features ; Fits in small lamps

Expensive ; Difficult to set up

Lifx's mini bulbs are difficult to set up, but they're easy to integrate into a smart home once they're up and running.

Review: LIFX Mini takes on Philips with Apple HomeKit

 

The LIFX Mini is about what you'd hope for from an iPhone-compatible smartbulb, and with HomeKit, LIFX is finally ready to go toe-to-toe with the popular Philips Hue platform.

If there's anything close to a serious gripe we have with the Mini, it's only that on the standard model, colors we picked in the LIFX or Home apps sometimes didn't translate into the real world. In those cases, it was just a matter of experimenting...

LIFX Mini Smart Bulbs

 

Smart lighting with control like you've never seen before.

High-quality white, temperature-changing and colour lightbulbs ; Powerful app control ; Support for every voice assistant

Fiddly to set up ; Apple Home didn't control temperatures properly

Smarter, smaller lights with a neat range of control options and some fancy modes.

Lifx Mini Wi-Fi Smart Bulb review

 

It's been an awfully busy year for Lifx. After introducing support for Apple HomeKit and the Siri controls that come with it, the color-changing smart light brand expanded the lineup to include several notable new products, including Lifx Tile wall...
