You might remember the scene in Mr. Bean Series, where Mr. Bean shoots at the bulb while lying on the bed because he is too lazy to get up and switch it off. That laziness is something we all can relate to. But thanks to newer technologies, we don’t have to shoot bulbs any more!

Smart bulbs that can be controlled through mobile apps and smart devices have started gaining popularity in India. Numerous brands and options are available to confuse any layman. That is why we have brought to you this list of best smart LED light bulbs in India.

Before we get on to the list, here is a quick brief of the important aspects to take care of while buying a smart LED light bulb.

  • Ease of Set-up- Being still a nascent product line, ease of integration with Alexa/ Google Assistant and connection to Wi-Fi is still not streamlined for various brands. Hence, ensure that the smart bulb you buy is fairly easy to set-up.
  • Compatibility with your home Wi-Fi- Check the frequency of the modem you use and ensure that it is compatible with the bulb. Most of the bulbs work with modem that has 2.4 GHz frequency.
  • After-sales Customer Care- A vast majority of users have had some kind of an initial hiccups while setting up the light and connecting it to your home automation system. That is why you need to ensure that the brand is backed by a good after sales support team that helps you sail through initial set-up confidently.
  • Pin compatibility- This is something you need to check while buying any bulb- be it smart or dumb! Check the bulb pin and ensure it is right fit for your bulb holder.

When you put the bulb in warm white tone, 12W is fairly sufficient for a medium size bedroom. For large living rooms, you might need 2 such bulbs. But, when you switch the bulb to various color modes, you will find that it doesn’t have sufficient brightness to keep a room well-lit.

Yet another aspect to take care of is that the bulb is larger than a normal bulb of comparable wattage. It is around 14 cm long and 7.5 x 7.5 cm wide. So, before you buy it, ensure that the bulb fixtures can accommodate this size.

An advantage of Solimo over other brands like Wipro is that it is fairly easy to set-up.
