What is Smart Lighting?
Simply put, smart lighting is the advanced way to light up your home.
Every day, our homes are getting smarter; virtual assistants, video doorbells, motion detectors, are just some of the revolutionary household items that make our lives easier. And as one of the most important interior considerations, it’s only right that smart lighting exists, too.
For too long we’ve been restricted to minimal home lighting capabilities. On, off, or dimmed. Fortunately for us, smart lighting systems give us extra control!
It all sounds magical, and it’s actually pretty simple. Smart bulbs connect to your wifi, through which other devices, such as your tablet or smartphone, can communicate all your demands - all but eliminating the need for traditional wall switches!
What’s even better is smart light bulbs easily screw into the existing sockets.
No stress, no fuss, just convenience without compromise.

What You Need for a Smart Lighting System?
Anyone can install smart lighting, so long as you have a home WiFi network. Unlike other smart lighting providers, with BAZZ Smart Home, you don’t even need a hub to reap the benefits - the lighting connects directly to your WiFi!
By connecting smart lighting to your internet network, other devices connected - such as your phone or tablet - are able to communicate your demands to the bulbs.
It really is a case of removing your old lightbulbs and screwing in smart bulbs! Within minutes you’ll have complete control of your lighting through your smartphone. And if you have a virtual assistant such as a Google Home or Amazon Alexa, you can use voice control, too.
What Kinds of Smart Bulbs Do You Need?
If you want smart bulbs to replace those in place in floor lamps or hanging ceiling fixtures, A19 smart bulbs are the likely solution. The A19’s shape emits omnidirectional lighting, dispersing light evenly across the surrounding environment.
But when you are needing directional lighting, BR30 light bulbs and recessed lighting are a better choice. These point light straight ahead, providing direct task lighting instead of dispersing the light. The perfect match for hallways, home offices, and above kitchen workstations.
What Smart Recessed Lighting Fixture Do You Need?
Recessed lighting is a practical and stylish way to illuminate spaces and areas requiring accent or task lighting. Smart recessed lighting fixture has three components that define it: housing, trim style, and bulb type.
When considering recessed lights, you have to pay attention to the type and size of the bulb or lamp the fixture uses. The standard size has long been 6-inch, but as the trend has evolved, spotted 4-inch lighting has slowly taken center stage.
Just like regular bulbs, LED should be your preference as they also require significantly less energy and less maintenance. And as a general rule, you should have lighting with a warm white colour temperature in spaces such as the living room and bedroom, and bright white colour temperature for kitchens and workspaces. Or better yet, have a bulb that can tune your lighting from cool to warm!

Frequently Asked Questions
1) What Are the Differences Between A19 & BR30?
A19 and BR30 are simply two different standardized shapes for light bulbs.
A19 bulbs are a classic, everyday light bulb - used for a multitude of applications and can be used in almost any fixture. The BR30, however, uses a reflector inside the bulb to better point the light straight ahead from its flat end. For that reason, BR30 bulbs are a better choice for directional lighting.
2) Are All Bazz Light Bulbs Dimmable?
Yes! Whether it’s recessed lighting or an LED bulb, all BAZZ smart lighting is dimmable. You can easily alter the brightness of the lighting directly through your smartphone.
3) What Does the Color Temperature Mean?
Colour temperature basically means the level of warmth and coolness in a lightbulb - measured in degrees Kelvin (K). When looking at the colour temperature of a bulb, you should be aware that ‘warm colours’ are on the lower end of the Kelvin spectrum while ‘cool colours’ have a high colour temperature.
Bulbs have different colour temperatures because what might work in one room might not be suitable in another. For example, warm/soft whites are ideal for bedroom and living spaces, but cooler whites are best for the kitchen and bathroom.
The three basic colour temperatures for light bulbs are warm/soft white (2700-3000K), cool white (3500-4100K), and daylight (5000-6500K).
