The term "smart home" might make you think of a whole home filled with technology and smarts, but the truth of the matter is that most smart homes take on new tech one step at a time. You can get started simply with a pack of smart bulbs like this 4-pack of Lohas color-changing bulbs at Amazon. Using code 7DFFHDG8 during checkout drops their price down to just $19.99. That's like paying just $5 apiece, and it's a deal you shouldn't skip out on as the set normally sells for more than twice that cost on average.

Unlike certain other smart bulbs like those from Philips Hue, these Lohas smart bulbs don't require a costly hub to work. You won't need anything other than these bulbs, your smartphone, and a Wi-Fi connection at home to get started.

Once you've screwed in these bulbs, you can use the Lohas Smart App or Tuya App to connect them to your home's Wi-Fi network and begin controlling these lights from anywhere in the world. The app allows you to customize the light's color and brightness, with the ability to choose from over 16 million colors as well as eight scene modes.

With the Lohas Smart App, you'll also be able to create a lighting group and control these bulbs as a set or separately. The bulbs are even compatible with voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri, so if you have a device like the Echo Dot, you could ask Alexa to turn these bulbs off for you when your phone's not around. The bulbs have a classic A10 shape with an E26 base and feature lifespans of up to 30,000 hours. Lohas includes a one-year warranty with this purchase.
