Building a smarter home takes time and a decent amount of investment. Upgrading your thermostat is a good start while having smart speakers can help you in the kitchen, bedroom, or whatever room you place them in. Having a smart sprinkler system will save you water and keep your bills lower.

But another great way to make your house smarter is to get smart lamps for your bedroom or living room. Whether you want a floor lamp or one for your desk or bedside table, there are choices for you. We’ve taken a look at the market and found some of our favorite smart lamps to let you know what you can best use to outfit your home.
