To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Set up was easy, the app is not intrusive on either Android or iOS, although it plays better with Google Home, rather than Apple's solution (as in, I could not set it up for Siri at all).
App allows setting the warm/light balance, the colour it outputs, and the strength of the light itself, and you can schedule times for it to change specifically, including ramping up/down between presets, and an auto setting which works quite well, but I probably prefer more light consistency myself.
Very good bulb, read the included instructions carefully, I did forget to switch my phone to the bulb's open wifi at first to configure it, but it has been nothing but a pleasure since.
I purchased two of these a few months ago, to add to the increasing amount of "smart" devices I have in my home. I wasn't disappointed! From the moment you open the box and feel the weight of the bulb, you can tell they are well made, as expected from a top brand like TP-link! They were a little bit on the pricier side compared to other Smart bulbs, but I highly recommend them!
They can be controlled by Google Home/Alexa, and come with their own app "Kasa" which allows full customization of colours and brightness, this app can then be connected with Google Home to allow for voice control of the bulbs, including changing the colour. They were extremely easy to connect to the Wi-Fi, connecting first time on both bulbs, brilliant! As I've had smart plugs etc take multiple attempts
I have them situated one in the living room and one in the bedroom, and when I see another deal on, I will be looking to purchase an additional one (at least) for use in the hallway.
Overall, if your looking for a reliable, high-quality smart bulb from a well-established brand, these are perfect!
Best invention ever! Love the fact it can come with a screw/bayonet adapter. I have these at home, my boyfriend and I work in hospitality so were out all day and come home in the dark, so we schedule the lights to come on before we're home, or if we know we'll be in when the sun starts to set you can actually get it to fade on as the daylight fades away! Love these so much I also bought them for my mother for her porch light (with waterproof fitting obvs) so it turns on at sunset and off when everyone is home. Love you can change the colour and brightness as well as the type of 'white' light. Super easy to use and install you can change lamps as much as you like just reconnect and the app is super friendly and easy to use have not had a single issue. They also so other things like Cameras which I also bought which are excellent too!
Excellent smart bulb albeit a bit expensive. The integration with Alexa is seamless and the bulb itself is very easy to set up via the Kasa proprietary app. I purchased this bulb in particular as most other (and less expensive) alternatives always mentioned the fact that these bulbs only connect through 2.4ghz wi-fi signals. I have BT Ultrafast fibre where the router does not split the 2.4 and 5ghz signals so I wanted to make sure the bulb will work at home. I'm happy to say that the Kasa smart bulbs work like a charm using my home wi-fi. The app itself has tons of customisation alternatives, from brightness to different colours plus the usual on & off scheduling. Highly recommended to buy if you are unsure whether or not your wi-fi signal will support.
Ive have lifx for years alongside my tp link sockets. The sicketa are quick and simple to set up and never do i have any issues ever. My lifx uld have been a nightmare randomly dropping off my network and not working. Resetting them was hell on n earth and almost weekly...so i decided to try this bulb and i have to day it took under a minture to connect on my fone alexa automatically recognised it was just faultless works exaxtly as good as my dockets i have no idea why i didnt get these years ago. Since i have replaced all my bulbs with tplink all work fine where simple and quick to connect and use on alexa and as a bonus they were half price of my lifx bulbs which gladly went in the bin
I find it utterly baffling how anyone of decent intelligence would struggle to install this bulb. It’s so simple even a child could do it.
I got this bulb to replace an old TCP pile of garbage that was outdated and wouldn’t connect to my WiFi no matter how hard I tried so went for this TP link model and I’m glad I did. Once again TP link prove why they are leading the charge with their product line up. Simple and easy to install great looking product and robustly built. See less integration with Alexa and superbly bright.
If you want a great product that bests its rivals then don’t hesitate go for this bulb because you will not be disappointed.
Totally loving this Kasa Range. Easy to setup and easy to use. App is amazing.
I dont have a smart hub so I use both my Kasa Bulb and Plug through my smart phone app and they are just a breeze to use. The app interface is easy to use and easy to navigate and setup schedules and see what energy you are using.
