Smart home devices usually offer small conveniences, but the SMFX Bluetooth smart bulb will change how you illuminate your home.

The accessory works with regular lighting sockets, but you can control it from your smartphone. That means choosing from 16 million colors, dimming the lights from your couch, and waking up to soft, artificial morning light.

The SMFX connects to the free app on your smartphone. This has several features, the most fun of which is the color wheel. You can pick whatever hue suits your mood, and adjust the intensity at the same time.

The SMFX utilizes the RGBW spectrum for brighter colors. In disco mode, the bulb will even change color to the beat. 

Plus, this bulb uses just 10 percent of the electricity of a standard bulb, which means big savings. And the bulb itself should last for 40,000 hours. You can also schedule your lighting for complete control of its usage.

Normally priced at $40, you can currently grab the SMFX for $29.99 via the Daily Dot store. The deal includes free shipping to the U.S, with international shipping available. Order now for a long-term lighting upgrade.
