Diwali 2022: The pros and cons of buying smart lights for your home

Diwali – the festival of lights – is just around the corner and you must look forward to going shopping in the coming days. Aside from sweets, purchasing decorative materials such as lights is exciting. You can get regular traditional chic looking Diwali lights at any other hardware store. But there is another type – smart lights – that offer a lot of advantages over the regular ones. At the end of the day, good lighting is an essential part of the Diwali festival.

Smart bulbs come in different shapes and sizes, but they can be broadly divided into two parts: the first is a regular light bulb called a smart bulb and it comes in a variety of designs. The second type is a light strip with a series of LED lights working together. Smart bulbs start from as little as Rs 500 and can go as high as Rs 7,000.

Smart lights support multiple colors, so you can choose the color you like

Smart lights support up to 16 million colors, giving you (if you’re a color connoisseur) the freedom to choose the exact hue you want your home to reflect. You can download the app on your smartphone and control the light color, intensity and even the lighting style through this app.

Some people like to leave the lights on during Diwali. That could burn a hole in your pocket. You can avoid this by replacing your old bulbs with smart bulbs. Most often these are LED lights that do not consume much electricity.

Smart light bulbs or LED strips last much longer, which means users can save more money in the long run. Many shopkeepers usually offer a one-year warranty, so you can get replacements if the bulb or lamps burn out.

Smart lights can be used like normal lights

Smart lights can also be used as plain white lightbulbs – fix them and leave them as is – no hassle removing these lights after the Diwali season. Most light bulbs also have light heat options: warm white, neutral white, and white light.
You can schedule smart lights and forget to turn them on and off

Users can quickly select the on and off timer via app. As evening approaches, the lights turn on automatically based on the time you set. They turn off automatically at the scheduled time, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn them off. This will also save you some extra bucks. They can be turned off by voice if the feature is supported.

You need an app to control the color, intensity and style of a smart light

Unlike the regular decorative lights, smart lights rely on an app or device (Light Hub) to control them. Without the app, it’s just a regular lightbulb that you spent a whopping amount of money on.
Smart lights require Wi-Fi to function as an individual collective entity

Smart bulbs rely on the internet to work. If you don’t have a strong Wi-Fi connection at home, getting a smart light can be a waste of time and money. Make sure you have a good internet connection before buying a smart bulb.
