Review: Tabu Lumen TL800 Bluetooth smart LED bulb

updated 10:20 pm EDT, Mon June 23, 2014

Smart LED Bluetooth bulb functionally sound, limited by smartphone application

With more technology comes devices that we never really considered using in the home. From controlling thermostats with smartphones, to home security cameras that inform users their residence is safe, such devices are becoming commonplace. But what if a consumer is looking for something a little less invasive to get started in smart technologies? Perhaps a light bulb, like the Tabu Lumen TL800 Bluetooth LED, could prove to be a good stepping stone. But with a small selection of bulbs on the market, is it the correct purchase to make? Find out in our review.

    Is it me or the bulb? I find any $50 Bluetooth LED multi-color bulb is so impractical (and costly). The more practical way to design bluetooth bulb is not the bulb, it should be the light switch which should be able to toggle between on and off whether via iDevices or physical switch (push button type). Like how the staircase light switch works.
