Grab a pair of TP-Link smart light bulbs for just $30 ($16 off)

Monday, January 21st, 2019

Philips Hue is the first name in smart lighting as far as a lot of consumers are concerned, but TP-Link quietly makes several quality smart home options, including smart light bulbs. The LB120 bulb is already reasonably priced, going for between $23 and $30 apiece, depending on the retailer, and it's currently even cheaper at B&H. You can grab a two-pack for just $30.

The bulbs aren't full color, but you can tweak them to put out warm or cool white light to your preference, ranging in temperature from 2,700 to 6,500K.

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Over the past few years, Nanoleaf has become the go-to source for a very particular kind of home decor: wall-mounted LED smart lights. It was only a matter of time before that industry started getting more crowded though, and thus we now have LaMetric Sky, a smaller version of Nanoleaf that further differentiates itself by broadcasting information including social media counts, sales figures, and the weather.

The LaMetric Sky - which is on view at CES 2019, but hasn't got a launch date yet - offers up panels with 32 triangular patches of light.

Saturday, January 5th, 2019

But you can't sit still while the world moves on, so Nanoleaf is back again with the Canvas.

Up until recently, any command involving smart lights translated to "do this to every light in the house;" not particularly intuitive. But lately, such commands have started applying to only the lights in the room you're currently in.

This is something a lot of users (including us) have been asking for for a while now.
