1. A smart lightbulb with adjustable settings
Control your room's ambient lighting with smart lightbulbs. This 60-watt smart lightbulb comes with a maximum brightness of 800 lumens and adjustable color temperatures to suit your room's lighting needs. You can control the bulb's intensity from the app and even set timers and schedules, so that the light goes on when you need it most. Reviewers noted that setting up the lightbulb with Hubspace took very little time, and several individuals said that the bulb itself was brighter than they expected.
2. A smart light socket for your home lighting system
If you'd rather not invest in smart lightbulbs every time you want to change your home's lighting design, you can invest in a smart lightbulb outlet instead. While not necessarily as versatile as a smart lightbulb, this smart outlet is capable of being used outdoors or indoors, is compatible with 60-watt lightbulbs, and may last you longer than a lightbulb if you want to maintain smart capability across your lighting fixtures.
Reviewers appreciated that the smart outlet made it so that they didn't have to purchase smart lightbulbs specifically made for outdoor use, and several people noted that it worked well with Alexa and Google voice commands.
3. A space-saving smart outlet for your wall
Controlling the electronics in your home could be as easy as installing smart plugs. The 120-volt Hubspace-capable plug from Defiant (with over 60 five-star reviews) can be prescheduled so your electronics aren't burning through power during the day, and the compact design means you can use your second outlet when you plug the smart outlet into a wall.
4. An RGB-capable overhead light
Set the mood with colorful ambient lighting. The Hampton Bay overhead light is, according to reviewers, easy to install and works great with the Hubspace scheduling system. The light has a wide spectrum of color options in a range of brightness and saturation levels, and comes in a matte black finish for a sophisticated look.
5. An easy-to-install smart duplex outlet
Realign your home to your smart tech needs with permanently installed duplex outlets for your walls. You'll be able to control your devices by turning the outlets on and off through the Hubspace app. According to reviewers, this smart duplex outlet was easy to install and worked well for kitchen devices, especially appliances like toasters and espresso makers that didn't necessarily need to stay on all day and night.
