Sengled is a smart light that offers and delivers significant usefulness. It’s currently a ZigBee end devices, so larger homes might need a signal boost and would probably support Apple Homekit in the future. Another good thing about Sengled is that it can work with hubs that are not its own.
Out of the many users of sengled, 67% gave five stars and commented about how easy It is to connect to Google Home, Amazon Echo, and Wink hubs when using sengled. The app also has fantastic features that enable you to set light schedules, monitor energy, and turn off light in case you forgot before you left the house. According to the lists, it also states that each bulb has the life span of 20 years, which means you don’t need to change your bulb regularly.
There is also added support for Alexa and Google Assistant control. Connecting to Google assistant will require a hub whether wink, Samsung Smart Things or Sengled’s own, but for Alexa, it will need connecting your Echo plus directly to the bulbs. And there are sengled bulbs connected to smartThings, which we control through Google Assistant and the connection is perfect.
The color temperature is 2,700k, and the output is 800 lumens, the standard you get from a household bulb. There is a separate app if you have a sengled app to control your many smart bulbs up to a maximum of 64. With the Element Plus bulbs, you can throw in some colors that operate exactly as the classic.
Going with the current trend, it also has a color plus bulb speaker. The bulb will sync up with the music and will switch the color based on the genre of music you are playing; this happens only when you change it to Rhythm mode. To counter the colorful smart bulbs from its rival sengled released an Element Color Plus but you may want to wait for its motion-sensing bulb to be launched later next year.
There is no smart bulb without its disadvantage. The first one for sengled is that it does not work with Apple HomeKit, although it’s still under work. And this is a problem for more substantial homes because the bulbs aren’t ZigBee repeaters and so there might be a need for the extension of a signal across a large area. Another thing is that the color bulbs cannot be bought separately. There is also a minimal instruction in the box for the setup although it’s simple and should not be much of a problem.
