Why are smart bulbs so expensive
Functions would decide the price of a product,let’s see what functions the normal light bulbs have?
Turn on/down artificially, when turn on the surroundings would be bright, and any others?
Normal bulbs are simple and nowadays the price of a normal bulb can be lower than 1 USD, and even 2 USD for 6 packs and even more.
But smart bulbs have a lot of functions such as:time-setting/colorchanging/automatically turn on and off/voice control/smartphone control and so on! Internet of Things technology give lighting a totally new concept and for which smart bulbs are so expensive.
