LIFX Wi-Fi Smart LED Bulbs w/ IFTTT Integration! REVIEW (4K)



» LIFX 1000 Smart LED Bulb:
» Other Models (Whites, BR30, etc):
» » The LIFX Color 1000 (A19) are Wi-Fi smart LED light bulbs, that are multicolor (up to 16 million colors and 1000 shades of white), and dimmable. The best part, these bulbs integrate with a ton of 3rd party applications, my favorite IFTTT! With IFTTT.com integration, it opens up a massive world of potential for the smart bulbs, using If This Then That statements.. here are just a few examples:
-Each time I receive a new text message, flash the lights red.
-Whenever I come home, auto turn on the lights, and when I leave, auto turn off.
-I can easily integrate with the weather, so if it’s about to start raining outside, bring down the lights and turn to a cool blue.
-I can even use these as simple home security assistant when I’m away; every so often toggle the lights on and off throughout my house to make it look like someone is home.

Honestly, the sky’s the limit to your ideas and infinite possibilities!

These bulbs also work great for shooting photo and video in my studio. Each bulb shines fairly bright, 1055 lumens. I have full dimming control, plus Kelvin settings, so setting white balance is a breeze and helps match other lights very quick and easy.

If you think of any other sweet IFTTT integrations or ideas, let me know down in the comments. Thanks for watching!

    I dunno about IFTTT. I paired my WeMo switch to my LIFX bulbs with IFTTT and the delay from trigger to action is insanely long. Lighting at night is a personal safety issue and I can't be waiting a minute or more to have my lights turn on after I flip the switch. That being said, the LAN protocol via the app works almost instantaneously, so I think I'll try to mess around with Home Assistant on a RasPi to get these two devices to talk to each other locally instead of having to wait for an interminably long round-trip across the Internet.

    idea 1 from abode reddit: Use bulb as status indicator of security system status. Idea 2: dedicate a secondary router (don't we all have an old one laying around by now?) for wifi smart home stuff like this. Use different wifi channel than primary router.

    How does the hands free work for these LIFX bulbs? Can these bulbs turn on when you just walk into a room when they are not on? If so, how does it go about doing so? Is it via Bluetooth or does it need geo-tagging via a hub like Smart things home?

    Not a fan of even more devices that'll bog down the wifi, but these are really funky! Love the IFTT integration too. They seem a bit pricey (though on average for these type of bulbs, unfortunately) – especially for heavy users. I have a couple IFTT idea: a flash for a daily run reminder; or, how about turning on the foyer/hallway lights near the door when the doorbell rings? Are you going to designate these as studio lights? Would be interesting to see how that works out.
