Smart home technology has revolutionized the way we interact with our living spaces, and smart lighting is a key component of this transformation. What's a smart home without being able to turn off your lights using only your voice or an app?

Matter aims to streamline the smart home experience by ensuring that devices from different brands can work together seamlessly. With Matter, you can control your smart lights from a single app, regardless of the manufacturer.

But before you go ordering Matter-compatible smart bulbs on Amazon, there are a few key factors to consider first.


What features are important to you? Do you want a bulb that can change colors, or only one single color? Is it for a room in your house or outside for a party? Do you need one that is dimmable?

Knowing your feature requirements is the first step towards deciding what product to buy. Each bulb is different in its own way.


Next up, you need to think about how bright you need your bulb to be. This will depend on the size of the room and how much light you need.

Again, is this for regular use in a normal room in your house? Or do you need really bright flashing lights for a backyard barbecue? You don't want your lights shorting out because you're asking too much of them.


Now the really important question - how much are you willing to spend on a smart light bulb?

Smart light bulbs can range in price from around $10 to $100 or more. It obviously depends on what company you go for, with top name brands like Philips Hue being amongst the priciest. But like anything in life, you get what you pay for.

Also bear in mind that you can usually pick up a nice discount if you buy bulbs in bulk. This is definitely a good strategy if you are often at home.

Now that we have covered the essential criteria, here are some of the best Matter-compatible smart light bulbs on the market.
