Wireless LED Lighting features controls for your Smartphone
Considering a new smart lighting system? Get to control your lights wirelessly. Check out this wireless LED kit that offers a whole different lighting experience. You can even control the lights through your smartphone. The smart home options just keep on coming. The latest is the Connected by TCP Wireless LED Lighting Kit, which will set you up with three LED bulbs, the "Gateway" hub that serves as their collective brain, and a handy remote control. Setup is a breeze -- just plug in the Gateway, screw in the bulbs, and download the free TCP app to your Android or iOS device. You'll be controlling your new lights within minutes. As smart lighting kits go, there isn't a lot to dislike about what TCP's offering here. Each bulb gives off a very respectable 800 lumens of warm, natural-looking light, yet still manages to claim a life expectancy of 25,000 hours. The TCP app is intuitive and easy to use, even when you're programming advanced lighting scenes and schedules. The Gateway is compact and well-designed, mindful of the fact that space is at a premium on today's typical router shelf. The addition of a separate remote control is another nice touch. More on CNET.
