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!
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.
I've used LIFX, CHEAP CHEAP (eFamilyCloud) bulbs and now I've tried these TP link bulbs. These are the worst by far. They forget their settings and don't reconnect to wifi if you turn them off for an extended period of time. You cannot share the bulbs with multiple family members within a home (the official recommendation is to share your account and password with other members of the household) which left me speechless. The only redeeming feature is that the Kasa app looks nice, but again, is useless due to lack of sharing. Avoid buying these unless you live alone (and plan to forever) and never turn off your lights at the switch and never have power cuts.
