(Pocket-lint) – What do people want from a smart bulb?
That’s the question the team behind the Moonside Neon Lighthouse and Moonside Lamp One asked themselves during the design phase of their new products. They concluded that people want a dynamic, intelligent lighting experience that offers vibrant colors, complete control and a unique design that makes the device an absolute joy to have in the home.
Above all, Moonside wanted to go beyond the typical smart lighting experience by offering endless lighting effects. In this article we examine what the Moonside Neon Lighthouse and Moonside Lamp One bring to the table to make them the coolest smart lamps out there.

They want more than a smart lamp that simply reacts to what’s happening around them. With the Moonside lights you can control your lighting experience with a clever mobile app that gives you access to endless lighting effects.
Available on the App Store and Google Play, the Moonside app allows you to control your lamp over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The app also integrates with many smart home devices and technologies including Amazon Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT and many more.
Users can select their preferred lighting colors from over 16 million options and change colors dynamically from their smartphone. But perhaps most impressively, the Moonside app allows users to custom paint each pixel in their Neon Lighthouse or Lamp One device. You have an almost endless choice of ways to light your home.
Slim and stylish design
Inspired by the classic lighthouse design, Moonside lights have a slim and flat design. They look less like lamps and more like decorative elements for your home. The team approached the design with a philosophy of creating a lighthouse that would light the way into people’s homes, resulting in an elegant tubular product.
The lamp stands on a stable 1 inch diameter base, available in black, silver, green, pink or blue. Measuring 14 inches in size, the fixture is capable of illuminating an entire room with colors of your choice.
Contains 90 LED pixels
We have already mentioned that all of the lamp’s pixels can be controlled individually. These pixels add up to 90 powerful LEDs, each of which you can set individually. The 90 LED pixels each have a battery life of 50,000 hours, which is roughly a decade of continuous use, so they will last for years.
With over 16 million colors to choose from, the Moonside Neon Lighthouse offers more customization than any other smart light on the market. Mix and match colors to your heart’s content until you find the perfect color scheme for your room.
Built-in lighting themes
Maybe you don’t want to create your own color settings?
In this case, you can adjust the lamp’s LED pixels so that they all light up in a single color. In addition to 21 reactive themes, Moonside also offers more than 50 lighting themes for you to experiment with.
These reactive themes are dynamic, changing based on music, sound or movement using the lamp’s built-in audio sensors. You can find a lighting theme to suit almost any mood, from calm themes that are perfect for the bedroom to reactive, fast-paced themes that offer dynamic light changes for parties.
High-end build quality
It doesn’t matter how cool a smart lamp looks if it’s not built to last. After all, it only takes a few seconds of clumsiness to knock over and potentially break a lamp.
This scenario is not a problem with the Moonside Neon Lighthouse or Lamp One.
Both are made from a combination of durable aluminum and high quality acrylic materials. This combination ensures the lamp is sturdy enough to handle regular use and should survive if you accidentally knock it over.
Moonside Lamp One – The portable option
While the Moonside Neon Lighthouse is perfect as a feature for any room it is placed in, the Lamp One has a shorter and chunkier design. This makes it extremely portable, fitting easily on almost any shelf, desk or similar flat surface.
Measuring 6.5 inches tall and under 4 inches wide, the Lamp One comes with a USB-C cable and is compatible with most power banks. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for a subtle and elegant smart lamp that you can control with the Moonside app.
