Best Ways For Connecting Smart Lights To The Internet!

by Joey Williams Consultant

The new generation likes to live a smart life. And it is even completely correct because smart living makes our life easy. When it comes to lights, people think about going for 'smart lights' only. Smart lights play an important role in their life. It can be observed from the fact that most people never shift from smart lights to normal lights.


It is worth noting that not all of them have the same features. In the market, customers get a lot of choices for smart bulbs as smart bulbs are available in many of the varieties and connect in different ways too.

There are three methods used for connecting a smart bulb to the internet. They are as follows-

1.    Using a smart home hub

2.    Connecting to Wi-Fi

3.    Using Z-Wave or/and  ZigBee

Different methods for pairing smart lights to the internet

1.    Using A Smart Home Hub

These are the smart lights that need a 'smart home hub' to work properly. It is rarely available in the market. One of the best parts is that many of the smart bulb manufacturers provide their hub for their bulbs, but it is not compulsory to use as these smart bulbs can even be used with other hubs.

      We can't neglect the fact that using smart bulbs on another makers hub can create issues some of the times. Such as it can face problems while working.

2.    Connecting To Wi-Fi

You should always prefer smart bulbs that get connected to your Wi-Fi network.

      Luckily, these bulbs do not need a hub.

They work simply the way like the rest of the Wi-Fi products. You just need to put it and then connect it to the Wi-Fi network.

I recommend you to go for Wi-Fi bulbs as they are a great option but only when a just a couple of bulbs need to be installed at your home. Otherwise, your Wi-Fi network can get crowded.

      In the market, there are a lot of options available for Wi-Fi bulbs. Some of them are- LIFX & Flux etc.

3.    Using Z-Wave or ZigBee

It gets connected to infinite third-party smart home hubs which use the Z-Wave and/or ZigBee wireless protocols. It makes a good addition to your smart home hub without making you face any type of problems. You can pick either of the two and connect your bulb to the internet.
