Google Home Light Bulbs

I’ve always hate walking upstairs in the dark and then fumbling in the dark trying to find the light switch. Walking back downstairs and then realizing I forgot to turn off light in the bedroom.

I just unboxed the new Google Smart Light Starter Kit with Google Assistant and was so impressed by how easy it was to set it up in just 5 minutes!

The Google Smart Light Starter Kit with Google Assistant comes with a Google Home Mini and a GE C-Life light bulb and it’s only $55 ($31 if you’re reading this on Cyber Monday), making it one of the lowest priced smart lighting products on the market!

Just plug in the Google Home Mini and screw in the GE C-Life light bulb, and download the Google Home app. Both devices sync immediately to the Google Home app – so easy and seamless!

Now when I walk upstairs, I say, “Hey Google, turn on the lights” and the light turns on!

Plus, by switching to LED bulbs, you’re conserving energy in your home. LED technology uses about 84% less energy and lasts 15 times longer than a 60-Watt incandescent bulb while providing nearly the same light output.

I love how I can easily walk into the room and tell Google to turn on the lights and play music from my Spotify list, and then turn off the lights without getting out of bed. I even picked up another pair of C by GE C-Life smart LED light bulbs to install in the hallway!
