I used to have LED smart bulbs set up in a few spots outside my house that would turn on each evening at sundown and then off again each morning at sunrise. It was a great, albeit pricey setup when it worked, but I found that some bulbs would lose connectivity from time to time and fail to turn on or off. In searching for a solution I cam across a fantastic low-tech bulb that does the same thing but without the need for a hub, Wi-Fi, or anything else. Philips LED Soft White Dusk-Till-Dawn Indoor/Outdoor A19 LED Light Bulbs cost just $8 a piece when you buy them in a 4-pack and they have built-in light sensors that turn them on when it gets dark and off again when it’s light out. Pick up a pack and you’ll never have to worry about Wi-Fi or timers again!
