You can control this color-changing Wi-Fi LED using Alexa commands. Worth 50 bucks?
The TP-Link LB130 is a smart, color-changing LED that offers voice controls via Alexa. Click through to see what it has to offer.
To bring Alexa into play, you'll need to enable the TP-Link Kasa skill in the Alexa app.
The app lets you select the bulb's color or color temperature using these spectra. Just drag the cursor to the specific shade you want.
The app also offers an energy tracking feature, a "Circadian Mode," and a scheduling tool.
For the most part, the colors look great -- but you can't change them using Alexa commands. You have to use the app.
In terms of brightness, the TP-Link LED competes quite well with Lifx and Philips Hue. It puts out a very respectable 896 lumens at its default setting, and comes in nice and bright at the green and cyan settings, too.
That green setting was a bit yellowy for my tastes, though.
The TP-Link LB130 costs $50, which, like a lot of other color-changing smart bulbs, is annoyingly expensive. Be sure to check out our full review to see if we think it's worth the splurge.
