Maplin kindly sent me a Veho Kasa Bluetooth smart lighting bayonet b22 bulb to review.
Delivery was super fast, which was great because I couldn’t wait to try it out!
Upon receiving the light bulb I was amazed by the potential of this little guy. It is an LED low energy Smart bulb which has 15,000 hours of usage packed inside it and is A+ energy rated.
The best thing about the Kasa smart bulb is the fact that it is completely controllable by a downloadable app on my phone – How incredible is that? The excitement however, doesn’t end there – Oh no! Kasa Smart bulb has:
24/7, 365 day scheduling
You can schedule what time and day you would like your bulb to come om, or better still, you can create a group for multiple bulbs and then they will all come on at your specified time.
This feature is perfect for days where you are out late and you want that porch light on so you don’t return to a dark home. I personally hate returning home when it’s dark and the house is also pitch black, there is something quite unnerving about that.
Another scenario that I believe this feature will come in handy with is when you’re away from home. Scheduling your lights to come on will make it seem as though the house isn’t empty which I think is a super idea.
There is a countdown timer feature which will turn the lights off once the timer runs out. Once the timer is programmed you don’t even have the app running or even in range as it remembers the countdown!
