I'm looking for wireless control LED bulbs.

 

All I am finding are party lights. The ones with multi-colors and speakers. I don't need nor do I want those features.

 

I'm just looking to control some of my interior room and table lights thru my tablet running the Android OS.

Shark Tank about 3 weeks ago had a pitch of bluetooth controled LED lighting.

Found only Robosmart Wireless LED Light Bulb.

It seem to fit my bill, but I like to select from a larger selection. My hallway alone requires 8 bulbs. And my stairway 2. They add up to over a $300 investment.

Check Iris Smart Home at Lowe's. They have a variety of devices controlled by Bluetooth. You need a hub (control center) and the devices to be controlled.

I'd look to remote controlled switches and dinmers that are not tied to your actual bulbs or fixtures myself.

I agree. I have Z-wave light switches and can use any light bulb I choose.

You won't find cheap LED controlled bulbs. They are all expensive.

Found another one - INSTEON LED Bulb at Smarthome.

 

It needs a hub, but not sure if it needs wall switches to control the bulbs. I don't want to install wall switches as I'm in the process of finding a smaller home for my senior years. Wall switches would be considered part of permanent installed fixture.

Are your light fixtures permanent or free standing lamps? Get the plug ones if it's lamps maybe?

Ceiling in hallway and wall mounted in stairway.

 

Right now, it looks Insteon is my choice. As I can get a refurbish hub for about half price.

I don't know. I still probably go with switches and then just swap then back when you sell. Swapping the switches is easy and takes just minutes.

Th hallway is controlled by four switches and the stairway by two switches.
