Voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant are so much better when you can put them in control of your home’s lights. Upgrading to compatible smart bulbs is a great way to do it, and better still if you opt for bulbs that can change colors on command. The problem is that fullyfast — but right now, you can score four of them for just $35 total.
(And yes, the deal was actually an insane $28 the other day, but this is still a fantastic price).
The specific bulbs in question are Sylvania Smart Plus LEDs. They’re 60W replacement bulbs capable of shining in any color or any shade of white you like. Each bulb uses its own little Wi-Fi radio to connect directly with your router, so you don’t need any extra hub hardware in order to use them. And, if you like, they’ll connect directly with Alexa or Google Assistant so you can turn them on and off, dim them up and down or change their color with a quick voice command.
Just keep in mind that Sylvania sellsand connects with Siri. The otherwise identical Wi-Fi version currently on sale does not — it’ll pair with Alexa or Google, but not Siri. Oh, and by the way, a 4-pack of the Siri version currently costs about $150, which gives you an idea of just how great deal you’re getting on the Alexa/Google version.
