Smart bulbs are a great place to start if you want to make your home a little smarter. Most options are relatively cheap, and they’re easy to install. There are also no cameras or door locks for someone to hack into and invade your privacy. I’ve tested and lived with a handful since March, and these are my favorites.
If you want to take your smart home a step further, consider getting a smart speaker or smart display so you can use your voice to control bulbs. Two affordable options we like are the Nest Mini and the Echo Dot, but you don’t need them. You can always use the bulb’s app.
Updated September 2020: We added new products from Ikea and Nanoleaf. Eufy discontinued the Lumos, so we removed it.
