Smart home lighting is great. We're big fans. But it has a bit of a reputation for looking a little, well, tech-heavy. And if you're style conscious (which we, at Realhomes.com obviously are), you might really really want the functionality of smart lighting – but not the functional looks.
Which is where this range of funky filament lightbulbs comes in. Yup, industrial-look lightbulbs that every stylish interior has... but smart. Plus, they're pretty affordable. We're entirely obsessed and are pretty convinced you will be too.

So, what exactly does the Kasa Filament Smart Bulb (opens in new tab) offer users? Here's everything you need to know:
Control from your smart phone
As with any other smart bulb, it's super easy to control the Kasa Smart Bulb from your smart phone. Whether that's simply turning the lights on and off – either because you've forgotten or as a security measure while you're on holiday – or setting schedules or dimming the lights without having to get up.
Use lighting to set the mood
Available in two colour tones – Warm Amber or Soft White – there are plenty of options available depending on the atmosphere you're looking to create in your space. Plus, with the option to dim your lights from your smart phone, you really can customise your experience.
No hub required
Unlike some other smart bulbs on the market, this solution from TP-Link does not require a smart assistant, or any kind of hub to allow you to get started. Simply connect to your Wi-Fi and off you go.
That said, if you're looking to make the most of voice control, you will require a smart assistant. Browse our guide to the best smart assistants if you're looking to build a wider smart home system.
Considering switching out most – or all – of your lightbulbs in exchange for smart solutions? With the Kasa Filament range, it's never been easier. Create groups using your smart phone and control everything with the click of a button.
