I recently discovered Bulbrite’s Solana Smart LED Bulbs, and they are pretty amazing. I have tried smart lighting in the past, but it has always required wiring a new power switch or a hub. These smart bulbs require neither – it is as easy as screwing in a light bulb!
**UPDATED** Unfortunately our WiFi wasn’t strong enough for these bulbs. They worked, but I had to reset them weekly which proved to be frustrating. I was really bummed because I loved all of their features and the aesthetics of the Edison bulbs.
In my profession, lighting is important. I usually have to turn off my lights for photos because most lighting is warm. Warm lighting is nice to live in, but it is not great for color and photos.
Using the app, I switched my lights to cool…
And then back to warm…
And the switch was made in seconds with a click of a button!
Setup is easily controlled through the Bulbrite Solana app. Once the app is loaded, you simply connect each smart bulb via your wifi.
Once the bulbs are connected, they can be assigned to certain areas or groups. I have three groups:
- Living Room
- Kitchen Pendants
The grouping feature allows for control of lighting in a particular space at once.
The Bulbrite Solana Bulbs allow for programmed scene settings, schedules, and manual controls.
You can set the perfect scenes for every moment in your day – everything from bright, cool lighting on a cloudy day to warm to dimmed lighting for dinner.
You can set schedules to create automated settings to control your lighting all day and never have to worry about leaving the lights on while you’re away or use the bulbs in your bedroom and schedule them to brighten in the morning.
If you left a light (or lights) on, you can shut it off from the app wherever you are.
I only have the bulbs in our main living area, but I can see these being especially helpful in bedrooms. You can set the perfect preset scene for reading a book in bed and receive a nice wake up in the morning as the bulbs can be scheduled to gradually brighten in the morning – just like a gentle sunrise. You will never wake up on the wrong side of the bed again with a wake up like that!

So if I understand correctly, I can switch from warm to cool depending on mood or need. Is it REALLY worth the $20 per bulb or in the kitchen can I afford to buy 3 when my kitchen actually has 7 places for bulbs?
You can switch from warm to cool, set settings, and set timers. It’s pretty amazing. Yes, bulbs are pricey, but they supposedly last up to 10 years. Good luck!
