Smart Home Lighting From 4Lite Reviewed
Take a leap into super smart lighting with the 4Lite WiZ Connected range, including smart LED strips and even smarter bulbs!
4Lite WiZ LED Smart Strip Light Wifi & Bluetooth 2m Colour Changing
Looking for ambient mood-lighting? Or aiming to spice up that high-end gaming rig? The 4Lite smart WiZ LED full colour strip gives you over 16 million colours and a range of whites for superb comfort and customisation options.
Ideal for behind the feature TV, under cabinets or on ceilings, this device can do it all. Plus, at a lower cost than bigger name competitors (approximately £44.99 for 2 metres), it makes sense!
The starter kit comes with a 2 meter strip light, 2 meter strip extension, controller and power driver – no additional equipment required. Everything you need in one box! The light can also easily be trimmed for customized fit and extended up to 10 meters (extension sold separately). Wi-Fi connected, control this device easily with the WiZ App and Voice Controlled Smart Devices, such as Google, Alexa, Siri, Samsung Smart Things. Think of a device and it will likely be compatible, pretty much all bases are covered.
Stunning colours, superb responsiveness and a lot of fun. We’d highly recommend.
4Lite LED Smart Bulbs
There are also a range of bulbs ideal for ceiling fixtures and lamps, giving you absolute control over every room and each setting.
This colour and white dimmable smart bulb is an LED 8W (equivalent to 60W) with 16 million colours. Once again, controllable and easily usable with voice assistants. Thanks to LED technology, expect 25,000 hours of longevity.
Set-up is easy via the WiZ app, thanks for a fast interface and simple to use application. The app itself has no fancy visuals but it’s practically sound and offers superb room customisation, individual light customisation and enough pre-programmed styles to get you started. What we did notice is that integration is reliable and hasn’t failed us yet, no network drop-outs or inactive devices. Big ticks from us!
Customise with WiZ app and compatible with IFTTT
Thanks to a range of custom in-app settings and following a sync up with our IFTTT account, we’ve managed to integrate this superbly across our home. For example, we’ve synced up the lights to flash when our Ring Doorbell is triggered. Lights will also flash in the evening, if an intruder is spotted on our Arlo home camera. The range of connectivity here, across a range of bulbs less pricey than competitors, is a joy to use. It is very smart indeed!
You can set lights to schedule too, telling them to set a particular level of light, colour or mood for any time that fits your routine. You can also group lights for easier control, a big benefit with multiple ceiling lights in one space, for example. We also loved the energy use tracking feature, especially with energy costs sky rocketing.
Packed full of features 4Lite lighting technology is reliable, fully customisable and better value than some leading competitors. Expect a no frills app interface but an interface that gives you all the customisation you could need. Top marks from us.
