The Sengled Smart LED Multicolor Light Bulbs are a smart home lighting solution that allows you to control the ambiance of your home with a touch of a button. The product promises to be easy to install and provides a range of features to make it a convenient and efficient lighting solution.

In this tech review, we’ll be taking a closer look at the Sengled MultiColor Smart Light Bulbs series. This series includes three different types of smart bulbs, each with a different type of connection: WiFi, Zigbee, and Bluetooth. 

Despite their different connections, all three bulbs have the same size (A19) and E26 bulb bases. We’ll be evaluating the control, energy efficiency, use and functionality, warranty, and a lifetime of these bulbs to help you determine which one is the best fit for your needs.

Design and Build

Sengled WiFi MultiColor Smart LED Light Bulbs bulb is compatible with Wi-Fi and has no additional hub or bridge required for use.

One potential con of the bulb is that it does not have the ability to control it with physical buttons, which some people prefer. Additionally, some users may find the setup process to be more complicated than expected. Although it is a general problem with all smart light bulbs. But Sengled allows you to use its smart light bulbs with traditional light switches or smart light switches. You can replace them anytime!

The other thing I can’t mention is that Sengled offers you its products in kits so that you can quickly dive into smart lighting in your home. It offers soft white, daylight, tunable white, and multicolor options, as well as bulk options consisting of 2 bulbs and a hub in general. And I recommend those who are considering installing smart lighting in their home for the first time, take a look.

Comparison to Other Technologies on the Market

Compared to other smart bulb options on the market, the Sengled Smart LED Multicolor Bulb stands out with its compatibility with Alexa, and Google Assistant, making it easier to control your lighting with just your voice. 

The bulb’s tunable white color and multicolor options make it a versatile solution for different rooms and settings, and its dimmable feature provides additional flexibility.

As I mentioned before, Sengled has a different attitude connection-wise than different other brands. Each of the Sengled smart bulbs featured only one connection protocol. It can either be WiFi, Zigbee, or Bluetooth.
