How Much Does a Smart Light Bulb Cost?

Answer: priced from about $20.00

I have to say that smart light bulbs have to be the most confusing thing I have shopped for lately. It’s not that they are really all that expensive. It’s that there seems to be so many different options. Do I buy a bulb or plug to work with my Google Home Mini?

I don’t have very large needs. I have 2 lights that I want to be able to turn off without getting out of my chair so I could buy bulbs or plugs.

I think the disadvantages of smart light bulbs are that they could break or burn out and then you’re left standing with a $20 piece of garbage. But if you go for the switch option you can move them around the home and any thing that you can plug in to them will work with them.

So for me, it’s going to be plug. But what one? and How Much?

Smart plugs actually look to be the better deal and the ISELECTOR Mini Smart Plug 2-Pack would to the trick for me because  I have just 2 lamps I want to turn off so I could use one of these for each and they seem to be much cheaper than other brands.

I’ve never heard of this brand, but I am far from a home automation guru and for about $30 for 2 you really can’t beat the price.

Forget smart bulbs and buy these plugs instead. That’s my pick.
