Not a long time ago, everybody had a typing machine and they were great. But some day somebody came up with laptop and killed typing machines for ever.

The same thing is happening for bulbs by smart bulbs.

Incandescent lamps lit up the world and changed it dramatically. But because of low efficiency, they needed to be replaced.

Of course, LED bulbs were far more efficient but as we are losing energy resources and population is growing by light speed, we have to think of a way to reduce energy consumption again.

In many times, we use bulbs when we do not need them. Therefore, by changing bulbs to smart bulbs, we can tell them when to turn on or off automatically. This seems the best way to reduce energy consumption.

Reducing energy consumption is just one of many advantages of bulbs becoming smart. A more beautiful environment, better sleep and wake up and many more exciting things come with smart bulbs.

Many great companies like Philips has joined the rhythm. Other companies like Xiaomi, LifX and Hive have their line of smart lights.
