Traditional LED bulbs can always cause people a lot of trouble. For example, when you’re lying in beds, you realize you forget to turn off the LED lights. At this time, it’s really annoying to get out of your warm bed to turn off the lights. And if you have a kid who is a light sleeper, the trouble can be much worse because he will be easily wakened when you get out of bed to turn off the LED lights. However, smart WiFi LED bulbs have solved the trouble perfectly, which you can remotely control LED bulb with just a few taps on your smartphone or table, even set a time schedule to let it turn on/off automatically.
