TP-Link LB130 Smart Wi-Fi RGB Bulb
IT’S TIME TO PARTY.
KNOCKING IT UP a notch, the TP-Link LB130 adds full RGB colour control, as well as brightness adjustments. Like its white-only brethren, the LB130 connects directly to your Wi-Fi and does not need a hub. The cheapest we found the bulb is $65, including free shipping, on eBay, but prices are otherwise around the $70 mark. While not as cheap as the Yeelight, that is still very affordable for a RGB bulb. The LB130 uses a screw (E27) base, but comes with an adaptor to bayonet (B22). It’s rated at 11W (60W incandescent replacement), with a brightness of 800 lumens and a 25,000-hour life. It can handle full RGB colour adjustments, as well as a white colour temperature from 2,500K though to 9,000K. The bulb is controlled by the excellent TP-Link Kasa app, which can perform full colour and brightness adjustments, schedule changes, set scenes and even monitor power use. It also ties into other smarthome services, such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
