If you’re interested in smart lighting with a beginner-friendly setup, Home Depot offers exclusive smart lighting products on its hub-free smart home platform called Hubspace. The lineup of Hubspace products is small and growing and includes Home Depot brands such as EcoSmart, Defiant, Commercial Electric, and Hampton Bay. 

Hubspace products use the Home Depot Hubspace app to set up and control compatible products. All that’s required is downloading the app to your smartphone and scanning product QR codes to add them to your profile and connect them to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. If you have an Alexa- or Google Assistant-enabled speaker (or decide to get one in the future), you can add these voice assistants straight from the Hubspace app and control your lights through voice prompts.

Ready to get started with smart lighting? Here are a few Hubspace options to consider.

This EcoSmart smart LED light bulb can give you more control over lamps and other lighting fixtures. It’s an 8-watt bulb with a 60-watt equivalent (similar to what you’d find in incandescent lights) and comes with a dimming range of one to 100 percent. Depending on your preferred setting and the time of day, you could set the light to mimic close to daylight or soft white light. You can create customized schedules for this bulb in the Hubspace app and even group multiple bulbs to control them at once.
