LIFX 17W ES Wi-Fi LED Intelligent Light Bulb, Multi

Product information

LIFX is a Wi-Fi enabled, multi-coloured, LED light bulb that you can control with your Apple or Android smartphones and tablets.

Set the Mood
LIFX uses a free app to customise your bulb, letting you remotely turn lights on and off, dim the brightness and change the colour, so you can set the mood whether you're waking up in the morning or entertaining a date in the evening. Bulbs can also be grouped together, so you can set the atmosphere in a whole room at once.

Energy Efficient with no compromises
This energy efficient bulb consumes between 0.2W and 17W, depending on brightness level and can last up to 40,000 hours, or 25 years based on 4 hours use a day.

It features a brightness level of over 1,000 lumens, which is similar to a 75 watt incandescent light bulb but 4 times more efficient at maximum brightness (17W).

Simple setup
LIFX works with existing wall switches and dimmers and can be installed by downloading the app, screwing in the light bulb and then choosing 'Add new bulbs' in the app and following the instructions. It doesn't require any additional hubs, control boxes or electricians. Depending on Wi-Fi signal strength, LIFX can support over 60 bulbs on one network.

Please note: Wi-Fi features require an 802.11b/g/n compliant router in range of a bulb and either iOS 6.0+ or Android 4.0+ on your tablet or smartphone. LIFX bulbs are not intended for use in weather exposed areas.

Q & As

LIFX 17W ES Wi-Fi LED Intelligent Light Bulb, Multi 4.2 5 5 5
Very impressive colours and brightness. These lamps are fantastically bright at 1000 Lumens, the colours are very strong and you don't need a separate device to connect them to your wifi. They are large so do check that your lampshades are deep enought or that you are happy for them to be exposed. This is a fantastic product but you may need to wait for the app to be sufficiently developed to provide the sunrise / sunset effects and timers that you are expecting. Check the latest version of the app before buying. 18 March 2014
LIFX Amazing product, easy to setup and use. The app is brilliant, easy to setup multiple lights and scenes. Will be buying more. 25 February 2014
Well built, does what it say on the tin! I have fairly forthright views pertaining to Lifx as a company which I may have made known on their Facebook page. These relate to their treatment of Kickstarter and so called "batch II" customers who have pre-paid for these bulbs around 12 months ago directly from Lifx but still have not been received at this time. Yet John Lewis, Best Buy and other retailers have them on their shelves. The product itself is excellent. Whereas Phillips Hue and other rivals tend to require a "bridge" connected directly to a router, increasing cost and complexity, Lifx went down a different route. These bulbs connect seamless to my iOS app and the variations of colour and brightness is great. We use ours as an "uplighter" to background light our wall. The two bulbs I ordered directly with Lifx 12 months ago, when finally received, I will do similarly with. The product is well designed, very easy to use, highly recommended. I just wish Lifx had handled loyal customers better from their Kickstarter and "batch II" days. 07 February 2014
Love it !! Solidly built, beautifully designed and really easy to use. Great for special scenes like getting just the right light for watching films and the music visualiser is perfect for a party but it is also fab on a day to day basis to just have total control of the lighting - it changes the room and the atmosphere totally. 28 January 2014
Needs a lot more work Yes this bulb is well made and does dim and change colour via the app BUT you CANNOT set timers, you CANNOT operate it outside of your home and customer service from the manufacturer is non-existent. 11 January 2014
