While Alexa is useful alone — if you need urgent questions answered or want to place an Amazon order — there’s a whole world of opportunities if you pair it with a compatible device or two.Amazon’s smart plug is one of the best, because it’s affordable, guaranteed to work, and, well, just look at how cute it is!If you want your TV to power off while you’re asleep, Amazon’s Smart Plug can help.These bulbs are easy to set up and can be controlled using Alexa or through a smartphone app.The Philips Hue bulbs support routines like the Amazon smart plug, while adjusting the brightness settings is just a matter of yelling: “Alexa, dim the bedroom lights” or something similar.We recommend the starter kit as your first purchase, which comes with two (or four) white bulbs and the hub for voice control.

According to the new market research report "Ambient Lighting Market by Offering (Hardware, and Software & Services), Type (Surface-Mounted Lights, Strip Lights, Track Lights, Recessed Lights, and Suspended Lights), End User, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023", is expected to be valued at USD 96.09 Billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 10.71% between 2017 and 2023.The growth of the ambient lighting market can be attributed to the rising awareness about energy-efficient lighting solutions and stringent government regulations pertaining to the implementation of energy-efficient lighting sources.Residential sector to hold the largest share of the ambient lighting market between 2017 and 2023The residential sector is expected to hold the largest share of the ambient lighting market between 2017 and 2023.These units help in controlling multiple lights from single point of source.The control systems are usually integrated with trending technologies such as IoT; this makes their operations more effective.APAC to hold the largest share of the ambient lighting market by 2023Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest share of the ambient lighting market by 2023.
A group of researchers at the Higher Technical School of Architecture at the University of Seville have developed a predictive method for quantifying, by means of simulations of new dynamic metrics, the potential energy and economic saving that using smart lighting control systems brings.These smart systems are tremendously effective for saving energy, and are also very easy to install.Apart from in very particular situations, such as in rooms with little natural light or in very small rooms, the cost of installation of smart systems pays for itself in less than three years."To support this idea, we can look at the example, thinking of a conventional premises or office of 80 square metres - in the context of the climate conditions in Spain and that country's energy costs -of a smart system, made up of a lighting voltage regulator controlled by a photosensitive cell pays for itself in less than a year and can generate a saving in electricity costs of more than €4000 over 10 years.Also, this example supposes that the office uses very efficient LED lighting.If the office had halogen or fluorescent lighting, the saving in electricity costs would be even higher, between three and ten times so", explains the University of Seville teacher Ignacio J. Acosta.
Smart lighting and sleep improvement gadgets were two of the hottest categories at CES 2019 in Las Vegas earlier this month.Casper, the Wave mattress innovator, introduced the Casper Glow, a smart light designed to help you establish healthy sleep patterns.According to Casper, which bases its reputation on healthy sleep products, the Casper Glow’s warm lighting impacts mood and our ability to relax.The Casper Glow has a warm, dimmable 2,700K LED lamp that supports your sleep-wake cycles on both ends.You can set the Glow to fade gradually when you go to sleep.The default fade timespan is 45 minutes but you can change the duration with the free Casper app, available for iOS and Android mobile devices.
The term “smart lighting” is bandied about frequently to attract people who want to control the lights in their homes by means other than flipping manual switches.Most smart lights connect to home Wi-Fi networks, either directly or via hubs, after which owners can control and manage the lights with mobile apps or, increasingly, with voice commands issued to Amazon Echo or Google Home devices.Lighting control startup Orro today introduced the Orro Switch, which the company promises is “the world’s most advanced responsive and adaptive home lighting system.”According to the manufacturer, the Orro Switch has an onboard microprocessor and an array of sensors.The exact details aren’t yet available, but the basic idea is the switch detects movement and presence and learns how you use light in your home.Just because you are sitting still in a room, binge-watching, for example, Orro won’t assume you have left and turn off the lights just because it doesn’t detect movement.

While Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant carry on their race for connected-home supremacy, device manufacturers continue to launch smart products for every area in the house and yard.As we saw at CES 2019, most new digital home devices support both Alexa and Google Assistant.Near universal connectivity is the theme of Legrand’s new Smart Lighting Radiant collection of smart switches, dimmers, outlets, and plugs.Despite the name, there are no lights in Legrand’s Smart Lighting product list.Legrand focuses on electrical and network infrastructure and the Radiant collection products connect and manage a wide range of lights and small household appliances.The Legrand connectivity menu isn’t exhaustive.
Home furniture giant Ikea has steadily been getting into the smart home market, introducing products like smart lighting, Bluetooth speakers, and the latest being smart window blinds.The company also announced just over a year ago that it was teaming up with speaker company Sonos to develop ways to combine music and audio devices with furniture, and they’ve finally revealed that their collaborative products will be launching in August.Dubbed the Symfonisk line of smart speakers, the devices will be fully compatible with Sonos’ existing products, as well as Ikea’s Home Smart line of products, which includes power outlets, lights, and window shades.A promotional video released with the announcement mentions that goal of the collaboration was to combine Sonos’ “sound expertise” with Ikea’s “home furnishing knowledge.”Unfortunately there’s no details on what the final Symfonisk products are or will even look like.Ikea says more information will be coming later this year, but their promo video makes direct mention of speakers being hidden within furniture.

Whether it’s controlling your household lights, operating a smart lock, or rolling a digital die (try it yourself with “Hey Google, roll a die.”), the Google Home has you covered.Note: These products should all work with the Google Home Mini, Max, and Hub too, if you have one of those versions of the smart speaker.This comes in three versions, the regular model and its 4K counterpart (Chromecast Ultra) for TV, and the Chromecast Audio for speakers.If you own a Google Home and are looking for a low-cost way to improve another part of your home setup, these are a must.This will allow you to search for movies, TV shows, and actors; browse and cast content from Chromecast-enabled apps like YouTube; play, pause, and change the volume of music you’re streaming; and more, all with the power of your voice.It comes with a couple of compromises, but they’re small caveats to save the $80 between it and its bigger brother.
Who, specifically, is this gadget a good fit for?Consider Philips Hue, long thought of as an expensive option in smart lighting.That's certainly true if you want every light in your home to change colors, but if you're just looking for a modest setup with a few, non-color-changing bulbs, the buy-in is much more manageable.As of writing this, a four-bulb Philips Hue White starter kit with the mandatory Hue Bridge costs $90 on Amazon.Other smart lighting products from Sengled, Sylvania, TP-Link Kasa and the Anker-owned Eufy brand of smart home gadgets are all well-reviewed, well-connected and well-priced.GE's stepping on the smart lighting gas this year with a greatly expanded lineup of budget-friendly C by GE smart lights and switches, all of which will work directly with Google Assistant.
The Google Home Mini prices and Amazon Echo Dot deals went to war late last year to earn a place under as many Christmas trees as possible.When one goes on sale, the other isn't far behind, which is fantastic news for buyers.Today's deal sees both of these excellent smart speakers offer bundles that will save you £40 when buying a pair.So instead of paying £49.99 for just the one, you can get two for just £59.The Home Mini deal expires today, so we imagine the Amazon one isn't far behind it too.Two Google Home Minis for £59 at Currys
While wandering around the show floor at CES 2019 I noticed something new in smart home security -- cameras that replace your door's peephole, or hang over the top of your door (if you don't have a peephole).Ring's Door View Cam and the Brinno Duo Smart Peephole DoorCam replace your door's peephole; the Remo+ DoorCam 2 hangs over the top of your door.The idea, of course, is that you don't have to deal with electrical wiring or damaging your doorframe with a power tool.Anyone can buy these devices, but it makes the most sense for folks living in apartments and any other rental properties with cranky landlords who have rules about installing devices.It will hit stores "later this year," according to Ring, and they're designed to work with other Ring products.On the inside of the door you can still look through the peephole, but you can also get alerts on your phone whenever someone ring's the bell or if activity is detected within range of the camera's motion sensor.
Google said it expects its Assistant to be installed on a billion devices soon, and Amazon recently announced that more than 100 million devices with Alexa have been sold.So Amazon’s number isn’t a billion (it isn’t on millions of Android phones, after all), but support for Alexa continues to be built into more and more products, thanks in part to the Alexa Gadgets Toolkit launch last year, which gives developers APIs and technical documentation to make gadgets that can pair up with an Alexa device.Ahead, some of the more intriguing Alexa-enabled products spotted at CES 2019.LG’s futuristic rollable TV is coming to market, with a refined base station and a 100-watt Dolby Atmos speaker.Support for Alexa voice controls are also being added along with AirPlay 2.LG says it will be priced at a premium level.
