These are a bright idea

You can use SmartThings to turn lights on or off at the tap of a button, work them into your daily routines, and integrate with an alarm system — the possibilities are endless. There are plenty of choices when it comes to smart bulbs that work with SmartThings, but our favorite bulbs from Sengled are a mean combination of reliability and price.

Of course, you can't go wrong sticking with first-party bulbs from Samsung SmartThings to take the pain out of ecosystem integration, and Philips Hue make some of the best and most popular smart lighting products around.

If you're committed to the SmartThings ecosystem, these bulbs will cover you for years to come. And as a bonus, they'll all pretty much work with other smart home systems such as Amazon Alexa and HomeKit.
