I like my smart lights
But just about everything else that's supposed to be "smart" is just annoying.
Have someone over who wants to turn on the lights? Haha, they can't, not without the app! Want to turn on a light in one room? Better get out your phone and get fiddling! (They've since released physical switches you can use to control things, but I've yet to get one.)
The "smart" features that are supposed to work don't work all that well. I have them programmed to turn off automatically when I leave and turn on the light by the front door when I return. Sometimes this happens. Sometimes it'll turn on the light by the front door many minutes after I've arrived. Sometimes it'll just never turn them off, but turn on the light. Sometimes it just works.
You can use it with voice commands! These manage to be even slower than just digging out your phone and using the app.
So would I recommend "smart lights" to anyone else? No, not really. I like the ability to change the lighting color and selectively dim lights. It's nifty. It's not a killer app.
