So you're all-in with the best smart light bulbs. You've got almost your entire house rigged up so you can literally control your lights with Amazon Alexa, Google, or Siri on-demand. The one thing you're missing, though, is those darn ceiling fans and chandeliers with the smaller candle sockets. Well, not to worry — we've rounded up all of the best smart candelabra bulbs for you so you can complete your connected castle.
The best there is
Philips Hue is a household name thanks to ease of use, fast response times, and high-reliability levels. This bulb will wake you with warm light and help to wind you down with cool light at night. While small, this bulb is still plenty capable as it can reach up to 450 lumens of brightness, perfect for ceiling fans, and the latest version works right out of the box with Bluetooth.
The best with color
The Philips Hue Color Ambiance bulb brings the same smart features like the White Ambiance bulb but adds in support for 16 million colors. With the handy Philips Hue app, you can have a color for every mood. It works with pretty much every voice assistant, including Alexa, the Google Assistant, and Siri via HomeKit.
Ready 2 go
This two-pack from LOHAS allows for convenient controls and scheduling with an app or through a voice assistant. Not only are these 450-lumen bulbs colorful, but they are also tunable, meaning you can adjust the temperature to match the time of day. Best of all, these bulbs connect directly to your home's Wi-Fi, with no extra hubs required to get up and running.
Just like its name suggests, the LIFX Candle White to Warm's unique diffuser design gives it the appearance of a real candle when illuminated. LIFX's light bulb is also tunable with a color temperature range of 2,200K-6,500K, and with 480 lumens of brightness, it is suitable for most overhead fixtures.
Geeni's filament bulbs combine vintage charm with the power of Wi-Fi, enabling all of the conveniences that smart bulbs are famous for. At 360 lumens each, these bulbs won't overpower you with the exposed filament, but they are still bright enough for most needs when multiple are used in the same fixture.
Cheap and colorful
This smart candelabra bulb from MoKo is one of the cheapest options around, but that doesn't mean that it is light on features. MoKo's bulb can output up to 16 million colors and shades of white, at a respectable 400 lumens of brightness. This bulb also connects to your home network via 2.4ghz, so no hidden costs here; it is ready to go right out of the box.
