Koogeek Smart LED Wifi Alexa Siri Enabled Light Bulb Review

Here is a test of a very affordable smart multi-color LED bulb with voice assistant support, compatible with Apple HomeKit.

There are so many affordable smart home devices available on the market that it has become very hard to find the best. I have come across smart power plugs and other smart devices that have been extremely tedious to configure. The Wifi connected Koogeek Smart LED bulb has a pleasure to set up. Within a minute the Koogeek smart bulb was connected to my iPhone and ready to be controlled via the app or my Alexa. Even Siri understands me on my Apple Watch and switches the Kookgeek bulb on and off on command.

The reason why the Koogeek LED Bulb is so easy to configure is Apple's HomeKit. After downloading the Koogeek app, you just add a new device by scanning the HomeKit code with the iPhone camera on the manual or blub and you are all set. Other Wi-fi smart devices are often a drag to configure as you have to switch manually between your Wi-fi network and the network of the device to configure it. With HomeKit that is not necessary.

The Koogeek Smart LED bulb is fully dimmable and can change color to any (16 million!) you want. You can control the bulb from the Koogeek app, Apple's Home app, Siri and also Amazon's Alexa. The Wi-Fi enabled LED light bulb uses 8 watts and delivers up to 500 lumens.

To get Alexa to work with the bulb, you need to make an account with Koogeek during the setup process. You need that login in Koogeek's Alexa Skill, to enable it.

The ability to control the bulb through multiple venues is really adding convenience. I just tested one bulb. To fully unlock the bulb's potential you would want to use them in multiple lamps and control them in sync as part of scenes. As these smart bulbs are not expensive, it is quite affordable to equip a whole apartment with Smart bulbs.

The Koogeek Smart Bulb is on sale for $36.99 on the TomTop online store. The Koogeek smart LED bulb shines with the high-quality software that makes it very easy to configure and use. The light is very bright at the maximum level and the colors are very vibrant.

Koogeek has a whole line-up of affordable smart home components, such as Wi-Fi switches, plugs and more. The Koogeek smart bulb and Koogeek smart home components are also available on amazon.com.
