Smart Lighting: WiZ Connected Lighting
Upgrade your back-to-school routine with cool and smart lighting, especially for a college apartment. You can find their LED color bulb, light strips, and Squire table lamp at Amazon and Best Buy.
The lights are controllable through the WiZ smartphone app or hands-free voice control. They work wirelessly with your Wi-Fi, so no additional hardware is needed, and they bring total flexibility. The whites and colors are adjustable, allowing you to schedule them to turn on and off when you want them to. You can put on the white light setting when you need help waking up and getting ready for class in the morning, a colored light for a party setting, or a relaxing warm light setting, like before bed. The bulbs are so easy to install.
WiZ has all kinds of light bulbs, lamps, LED strips, and accessories starting for under $10, plus great back-to-school deals at Amazon and Best Buy. Check out wizconnected.com.
