Adjusting brightness is great and all, but what about color temperature? Some days color for different temperatures, even your mood. The TP-Link Kasa Tunable Bulbs give you the option to both change the brightness as well as the temperature, in addition to smart home functionality. It’s one of the best smart light bulbs, thanks to its wide range of smart assistant support.

Why We Like It – TP-Link Kasa Tunable Review

These tunable light bulbs by TP Link and Kasa Smart aren’t just content with typical smart home features and functionality. In addition to brightness, you can control temperature and in various ways.

Pros
  • Supports a wide range of voice assistants
  • Don’t need a central hub
  • Can tune the color temperature
Cons
  • Contains one smart bulb
  • Lacks color options

Performance

The TP-Link Kasa Tunable LED Bulbs give off a natural 800 lumens. It’s a comfortable setting, adjustable through an app. They’re also Energy Star certified, ensuring you’re saving on your energy bill, as well. What’s nice is the ability to adjust color temperature, aside from brightness.

Getting the lights listen to voice control was a cinch, too. Aside from Alexa Google Assistant can be used to issue voice commands. And if you have Siri or Microsoft Cortana, you’re part of the club, too! TP-Link Kasa Tunable bulbs support a wide range of voice assistants.

Design

Getting started with the TP-Link Kasa Tunable Soft White Light LED Bulbs is done in a matter of minutes. Once you have one installed, they’ll come up as a viable device to connect to your home network. After connecting them to your Wi-Fi, you’ll have the option to adjust temperature and brightness via app, the Kasa Smart app. No hub is required either, just the Kasa app. And here’s a tip: if you have several light bulbs, connect them one by one.

Value

Lacking color options is one thing—it isn’t for everyone—but the pricing is what really holds the TP Link Kasa Tunable White Smart Lights back. Paying $20 for a single smart home light bulb? Kasa Smart makes the same mistake with the TP-Link Kasa Smart Light Bulbs, but the TP Link Kasa Smart Light Bulbs are a bit cheaper. The TP Link smart bulbs make a good argument, but you’re better off siding with Peteme 4-Pack 60W for better pricing or Philips Hue White 4-Pack if you aren’t trusting of Peteme.

It comes down to brand familiarity. TP-Link is a household name, and even dabbles in other devices such as smart plugs. You’re still getting a great smart bulb.

TP-Link Kasa Tunable Review Wrap Up

We can look past lack of color options, but pricing is a hard pill to swallow. Brand recognition is important here. What you do get in return is a great LED smart light bulb with tons of smart assistant support that doesn’t need a central hub, and can have its temperature changed.
