Happy January, everyone! To help kick off 2021 in the best way possible, the innovative smart LED lighting company Govee has partnered up with us to deliver our first contest of the new year. We're giving away four smart home accessory bundles that each contain Govee's new Aura lamp, the Flow Pro Light Bars, and the Govee Bluetooth meat thermometer. Here's everything you need to know.
If you still have a static string of colorful lights wound around your Christmas tree, you should consider swapping them out for something with some 21st-century smarts. These Wi-Fi-connected LED string lights from Twinkly will cast a dazzling display that puts your childhood tree to shame, and you can pick up a set for $125.25 ($36.75 off) on Amazon.
Light strips are pretty great. They can brighten up dark corners of your home, like under kitchen cabinets or inside closets, or they can bring ambiance to your furniture. What could be better than a light strip, you might ask? How about a smart light strip?
TP-Link announced the Kasa Smart Multicolor Light Strip (KL430) all the way back at CES 2019, and it was finally released last month. It packs 16 individual color zones and 10 preset animated lighting effects. I've been not-so-patiently waiting for the Smart Light Strip to arrive, and I'm not disappointed — even if some of the promised functionality isn't live yet.
The only thing better than outfitting your home with WiFI-connected LED smart lightbulbs that can be controlled with Google Assistant or Alexa is owning those same smart bulbs without paying a dime. Over the course of five days, forty lucky Android Police readers will be randomly chosen to receive one of several smart light products from REAFOO. Here's how you can sign up.
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!
Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements.
TP-Link makes some of the best smart home products currently available, with most of them functioning without the need for a Wi-Fi hub and working perfectly with both Google Assistant and Alexa. The company has started to venture into more exotic smart home products, and some of them are available starting today — specifically, two vintage-style light bulbs and an LED light strip.
Philips doesn't just make internet-connected light bulbs under its Hue brand — there are also motion sensors, dimmer switches, table lamps, and even light strips. Right now you can get the Hue outdoor light strip for $72.77 on Amazon. That's a reduction of $17.22 from the original cost, and its lowest recorded price yet.
