Voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant are much better if you can take control of the lights in your house. Upgrading to compatible smart lamps is a great option, and even better if you choose lamps whose colors can be changed on command. The problem is fullfast ̵
(And yes, the deal was actually crazy $ 28 the other day, but that’s still a fantastic price).
The specific lamps are Sylvania Smart Plus LEDs. These are 60 W replacement lamps that can shine in any color or shade of white you want. Each lightbulb uses its own small WiFi radio to connect directly to your router. So you don’t need any additional hub hardware to use it. And if you want, they can connect directly to Alexa or Google Assistant so you can turn them on and off, dim them up and down, or change their color with a quick voice command.
Remember Sylvania sellsand connects to Siri. The otherwise identical Wi-Fi version currently on sale doesn’t work – it is paired with Alexa or Google, but Not Siri. By the way, a 4-pack of the Siri version currently costs around $ 150, which gives you an idea of how much you will earn with the Alexa / Google version.
