About The Lamp and The App
This is a pretty impressive Smart Lamp. Together with its App, they make an awesome combination. But couple that with Amazon Alexa or Google Home Assistant and you’ve got a Lamp that is easily comparable to Philips Hue. Only you don’t need any expensive Hub for this little beauty. I have a Philips Hue system at home and only wish that these lamps had been available when i bought it. The Next thing this seller could do would be to develop a GU10 lamp similar to the HUE system and they’ll be onto a winner. The only thing this Lamp doesn’t do is work with IFTTT, but there are ways around this through Alexa and Google Assistant
Connecting the Lamp
I love my Amazon Alexa, it’s like having a remote on the tip of your tongue. So i can’t comment on Google Home Assistant as i don’t have one of their devices, but i can tell you about Alexa. So, when you first put power to the lamp you need to set in into pairing mode to connect it to your Wi-Fi. This is done through the Smart Life App which is downloadable from your devices App Store.
First of all, set yourself up an account and then log in. Hit the Plus button in the top right of the app. Set the Lamp into pairing mode. Pairing mode is achieved when the lamp is flashing on and off every second, (Start with it switched on. Then switch it off and on-once every second, for three times). Confirm this on the App and then link to your 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection. You will receive confirmation when your Lamp is connected.
Using with Amazon Alexa
Now that your Lamp is connected to the App and you are enjoying exploring what you can do with it, it’s time to link it to Alexa. Open your Alexa App on your device and add the Smart Life Skill. Enable it and log in to your account, then press the discover items button. Alexa will take around 20 seconds and tell you on your device that discovery has completed and how many items were found.Looking down your list of items you should find the Smart Lamp. Now tell Alexa to set it to Blue. You’re done.
What’s it like to use?
A wonderful atmosphere can be created, especially with several of these lamps set up as a group and controlled by saying something like. Alexa it’s time for Romance. Or set a lovely deep purple colour in the bedroom with two of these lamps. The App will allow you to set an infinite ambiance of brightness and colour to suit your own mood. Alexa can intercede to set the mood even further with some of your favourite music. You never need touch a light switch again and you have a Lamp that can act like 100 different Lamps, one for every situation.
I think this is a great item. It’s easy to use and set-up, looks great, it’s not expensive and you can have a lot of fun finding your favourite settings and mood. For me it deserves 5 out of 5.
