    "I was always laughing at people who bought these lights you could control with you phone. Then I started thinking how I would prefer my wife to come home to a lit house than it be totally dark and I went ahead and invested in them. Arlo is great. I can control these lights from anywhere with my phone, so no one ever really knows who is home at house. Also, they are rechargeable which will save you a lot of money in the long run. Great product."

    "I purchased this LED bulb to work with my iPhone and it is awesome. There is only one light switch on the far side of my kitchen so I was always stumbling through to turn the light on at night. Now that the light is connected to my phone, all I have to do is tap the screen and Presto! Instant Light! I highly recommend this as a starting point for the connected home, I plan to install it and use the Night Vision feature on my front and back porch next."

    "These lights were made to frustrate you. They work well for about a week and then suddenly they begin to fall off your home network like its their job. Scheduled lighting and automating anything is completely out of the question when these decide to stop working properly."

    "I really enjoyed using the Misfit Bolt Bluetooth LED Smart Light Bulb. It puts out plenty of pleasant light and is easy to set up and use. One glaring problem, however, is what happens when your internet connection goes down. The bulb either doesn't work or will flash on and off depending on what your connection is doing. It's both hilarious and bad when it happens."
