Osram Smart+ HK Flex 3P Multicolor
While Osram does produce Zigbee-supporting light strips, this version is geared towards the Apple market, supporting only HomeKit via Bluetooth. That’s casting a much narrower net than its opponents here, so if you’re not friendly with Siri or Apple Home, look at the other options. Osram’s kit is a twin- LED setup, sporting white spectrum and RGB lamps, and the strip is split in the box into three individual sections. It’s trimmable to fit, though there’s little design flair. Light output from the Flex is nice, convincingly jumping through RGB shades, and it’s plenty responsive, though at 10W it’s a shade dimmer than the competition. Oh, and its Bluetooth range is, well, Bluetooth range, meaning it’s never going to match a Wi- Fi connected light in terms of flexibility.
T3 SAYS Only compatible with Apple HomeKit, which does hurt it, but Osram’s strip shines in the white spectrum and handles RGB shades with aplomb.
