The Wyze bulb is a dimmable white LED smart light that is the equivalent of a traditional 60-watt incandescent bulb but with several fringe benefits you don’t get with run-of-the-mill light bulbs. With adjustable timers, brightness settings and voice-assistant integration, Wyze bulbs are a cost-effective, no-frills way of lighting your home – the smart way. And because Wyze only sells smart bulbs online, they keep the costs low – very low!

Installing Wyze Smart Bulbs
As far as smart bulbs go, Wyze bulbs are as straight-forward as they come. Screw your smart bulb into a light well, download the Wyze app from their website, add a product, adjust the settings to your liking and name the bulb.
Yes, it is THAT simple.
You also have the option to pair Wyze bulbs with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
Wyze Bulbs Lighting Settings
You can control Wyze bulb settings from the app individually or by group. Mood settings have a wide range of lighting options from candle-like soft white to stark white daylight. Each member of the household can save their personal settings too. The only gripe is that the dimness does not go as low as other smart bulbs.

The Wyze bulb was awarded the editor’s choice by the guy’s over at CNET and it’s difficult but to disagree. There may not be a unique novelty feature here, but if you want a good ol’ fashioned and reliable light bulb with practical perks, Wyze bulbs are an inexpensive way to kit out your house with smart lighting. Priced at $7.99 for one or $29.99 for a four-pack, the price makes a lot of sense really.
