Here’s a very simple, yet useful and powerful wall light switch by Waligh. It comes in a simple box to reduce the price, yet it’s just as good as any of the top line products. It can connect with Alexa (Echo / Dot / Tap), Google Assistant and IFTTT. It uses SmartLife app, which can be installed on any modern smart phone and tablet, you can also use SmartLife on PC by via Bluestacks emulator (but you can’t do first time setup via Bluestacks).
It works with 220 volts, so you can directly replace your old light switch on the wall without any issues. Wiring is very simple and can be done by anyone who knows basic electrics or has common sense, however if you’re struggling, then check out the video review below, where I show you exactly how to connect the wires.
Any further details about the product (app controls, setup, connecting..etc) you can find on the detailed video review below. Check it out!
Wireless light switches are awesome, so no wonder more and more companies are making them now. Usually they have 2 switches in 1, so you can connect 2 lights (or other devices) to the switch and control them via “smart life” app once they’re connected up.
Switch itself is super easy to connect if you have common sense and basic knowledge of how electricity works, but if you’re unsure how to install it, then you can find more details on the video review below.
You can also turn the switch on / off manually as it has to “buttons” on it, however if you want to connect it up via app, you must have the switch within wireless coverage, so make sure your router’s wireless is strong enough to reach the switch (you can test this with your phone or other mobile device to make sure signal is strong near where you want to install the switch). Once switch has been setup via app, you can then control it from anywhere in the world via app. Smart Life app also allows you to set timers or schedule and it says it supports Alexa, Google Home Assistant and IFTTT too.
Even tho this is EU switch, it will work perfectly fine in UK too as you only need to connect mains power cables to it, while i’m not so sure about USA, because USA uses 120v and not 220v. And in case you’re in doubt, this switch is not just for lights, as it’s a mains power switch, it can switch anything that works on 220 volts. If you keep forgetting your cooker on all the time, you can set it on a timer that it turns itself off after like 1h in case you forget cooker on. I’m not sure about wattage tho, it doesn’t say how much it supports, but I think it’s about 5000w or so, it’s hard to find a device that takes over 2000w anyways, maybe some heaters, but they usually have their own timers and switches and they also have a plug, so for heater you should be looking for smart socket and not a wall switch.

Got another RGB LED smart light bulb here, these things are quite cool and easy to setup and they get more popular by the day. One of those is not enough to light up your entire room, but it’s enough for some TV or PC light, also if you’re under or close to the light bulb, it’s good for reading too, however the color modes are rather dim, they’re purely for effect and not suppose to light up the area at all.
It can be controlled via “Smart Life” app, which is available for iOS and Android (maybe something else too?) For more details and setup guide, check out the video review below.
OxyLED Curtain Lights is a special layout of 306 LEDs and 18 strings that can be used as “curtain”, hanging down from above. It has 8 different modes, so it can be used for x-mas tree too or for parties. Brightness is not adjustable, however it saves the last mode it was on when you un-plug and re-plug.
Check the unboxing + review video below to learn more about these cool lights
This here is fairly basic, yet cool LED strip. It comes with adapter and remote controller (battery included) and is split into 2 x 5 meters, however you can use the included “adapter” to connect them together and have 10m strip, the choice is yours!
The LED strip is also flexible and has pre-applied adhesive tape at the back. Color choice is usual, Red, Green, Blue and mix of some other colors, such as orange, pink, purple, sea blue, sky blue ..etc. Brightness is adjustable and there are 4 different modes to choose from too, however I personally don’t like the cool color temp, the white is blueish white, but that’s matter of preference. If you want to know more and see it in action, check out the unboxing and review video below.
Here we have a color changing LED light bulb that can be controlled remotely via app. It’s quite heavy on it’s own, but apart from that, it can change colors and brightness and saturation via app. When unconfigured, it’s just bright white.
It’s not quite enough to properly light up the room, but will do just fine for ambient light when watching TV or gaming. Untested, but it says it also works with Alexa and google assistant.
App itself has voice commands too, which are demonstrated on the video, have a Happy lighting 🙂
Here we take a look at these simple LED fairy lights. Fairy .. as they are on very thin wire that is nearly invisible, so it looks like you have fairies hanging on a tree .. or whereever you decide to hang these on 🙂
It’s a pack of 2, so you get 2x 5 meter lights and 2x remote controllers! These are bright white only, you can only change in between 8 different modes, blink and stuff or solid ON. They’re powered by 3x AA batteries, well each unit takes 3x AA batteries and they’re not included with the product. OR you can cut the wire and convert it into USB, it’s easy enough.
It’s good choice for x-mas or other occasions where you need some flashy lights 🙂
This time we have a Kesen Wireless light switch that can be controlled either directly by using the touch-sensitive buttons or via mobile app that can also control the switch when you’re away from home! It’s great addition to your house, the app also allows you to use timer and schedule, for example if you’re not at home, but you’re worried about burglars, then schedule function really comes in handy, it can turn lights on / off any time and you can add multiple entries for different days!
If you want to know how to install and setup the switch, then check the detailed video review below as the setup process is bit of an hassle, however once setup, it remembers the settings and there’s no need to set it up again, even if power goes out, it keeps the settings.
