With this Osram SYLVANIA LIGHTIFY Home Starter Kit, you can finally give smart home light automation a go for yourself. It has all you need to get started -- a gateway and a smart bulb. No wires or complicated installation required either, which is a big plus if, like me, you want to enjoy smart home products but simply don't have the time or patience for the installation of something that takes forever to figure out.
Also, these bulbs are dimmable at each color temperature and are tunable between soft white and daylight white, so that's pretty cool because it means the exact right lighting for every occasion. And of course you can control it using an app on your smartphone or integrate it with other smart home systems like compatible Zigbee products, which is just plain convenient.
Most of the Amazon customer reviewers claim to have had a pleasant experience connecting their Osram starter kits with their existing home systems, such as WeMo Link and SmartThings. Also, they seem to enjoy the convenience that the light brings and how it improves the ambiance of their home. However, a fair number of users also claim the app is in desperate need of an update. This product receives an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
