It should be simple to replace light bulbs, even smart ones. Simply attach a google home max white to a lamp and pair it with your smartphone. You won’t have to navigate dark hallways or hunt for a switch. Many allow you to adjust the color.

The google home max white Bulb Color is our favorite smart bulb. It can reach low dimming levels and has the brightest LEDs we have tested. This makes it ideal for entertaining or reading comfortably. It is also one of our most affordable color-adjustable bulbs. The intuitive app makes it as simple as simply screwing in a bulb.

Things to Know

Color bulbs can emit millions of colors; some white models can switch from cool to warm tones (expressed in K or degrees Kelvin).

You can set up smart bulbs via an app on your smartphone. However, you can also use Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit or Google Assistant to control them.

Our pick

Smart light bulbs: The best

This smart bulb is affordable and one of our favorites. Although it doesn’t have any special effects, it offers excellent colors and reliable basic functions, such as remote control, scheduling, and timers.

Compatible with: IFTTT, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa

The Wyze Bulb Color has a brightness of 1,100 lumens. This is equivalent to a 75-watt bulb. It connects to your home Wi-Fi and is one of the brightest bulbs that we have tested.

Most bulbs emit about 800 lumens. It is a bright bulb, but it’s affordable, easy to use, and has a wide color-temperature range. You can also dim it as low or high as you want.

The timers and scheduling work reliably. There are also neat features like the ability to replicate sunrise or sunset, Vacation Mode, Power Loss Recovery, and how your bulb will be set after it turns back on after a power outage.


This model is less expensive than other Philips models, and it emits bright colors. It can also be used with smart platforms and has Scenes (presets for color and dimness).

Compatible with: Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri Shortcuts, Google Assistants, IFTTT, SmartThings

The google home max whiteWiFi LED Color Bulb is an excellent choice if you want to change colors at holidays, dinner parties, or for fun.

The bulb produces brilliant white light, and great-looking colors, and can be programmed to create special effects. You can choose from a variety of white colors that will suit your needs, whether you are looking for task lighting or relaxing at home.

The google home max white has several presets such as Party, Christmas, Fireplace, and Christmas, the ability to save favorite colors and scenes, and a Vacation Mode that will turn the bulb on and off randomly to make it appear you are home even though you are not.

Philips Wiz bulbs cannot be used with Philips Hue bulbs. We recommend that you use Hue bulbs instead.

Great also

Although the Meross bulb has a lower brightness range than our top two choices, it is easy to use, offers a wide color palette, and can be used with all major smart-home platforms.

Compatible with: Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit, Google Assistants, IFTTT, SmartThings

The Meross MSL120 Smart WiFi LED Bulb is compatible with all major smart-home platforms, including Apple’s HomeKit. It does not require a hub.

You can also trigger it to turn off or on based on any other smart home device such as a smart plug, camera, water leak sensor, or smart plug. It can also be used to voice command Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. Although it doesn’t have any special effects or produce as many white tones as our top picks, it still has enough brightness for everyday usage.

It is also cheaper than other HomeKit-compatible bulbs.


Smart lighting at its best

Although Hue bulbs can be expensive, they can be paired with many other Hue devices. All of these devices communicate wirelessly to avoid range issues. Hue supports all smart-home platforms.

Compatible with: Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit, Google Assistants, IFTTT, SmartThings

The Philips Hue White smart light bulbs and Color Ambiance smart lights create vivid, colorful scenes that you can control using Bluetooth and your phone.

The real magic comes when you add a Hue hub or a device such as the Amazon Echo with a Zigbee wireless Hub. You can control your bulbs remotely and use scheduling to integrate them with other Hue accessories and smart-home platforms.

It’s also more reliable than other wireless systems because the Zigbee connection is independent of your home’s Wi-Fi (it creates its very own mesh network between devices), Hue bulbs can be more costly than the other options.

We recommend the White and Color Ambiance A19 Starting Kit which includes three bulbs and a Hue hub as well as the Hue Dimmer Switch.
