When I was a child, one of the things I disliked the most to do is to turn off the light during bedtime especially when I am already laying on my bed, ready to sleep. This is the reason why I always end up daydreaming. I imagine controlling things with my voice. I wonder how it would feel to control things just by commanding with my voice.
Some may think it’s lazy, but you wouldn’t think so if you’ve seen an episode or two of The Jetsons. Bonus points if you have actually watched the whole series and loved it too! If you’re unfamiliar with the cartoon series, think along the lines of Back to the Future. The tech and innovation there is basically what I am picturing on my younger days. Plus on this day and age, you have to admit the fact that technology, somehow, makes our lives easier and comfortable. Even more, if you’re a stay-at-home full-time parent.
Going back to controlling things, who would have thought that it would become possible! It was a mind-blowing idea way back then, but technology and innovation truly have come a long way. The latest addition in our home is the Google Smart Light Starter Kit with Google Assistant, and you can bet, the kid inside me is thrilled. You know, just one of those little things that make us happy.
We plugged in the Google Home Mini, then screwed in the GE C-Life light bulb (both from the kit), downloaded the Google Home app, and DONE! It works just like how I imagine it to be. I installed it in our hallway and the nursery so I can easily control the lighting while multitasking. I can have my hands full with laundry, playing with Josiah, or even while I am carrying him from his bath and I can dim the lights EFFORTLESSLY! You can bet that hubby, and I are absolutely satisfied with the Google Smart Light Starter Kit with Google Assistant, and here are some of the reasons why you should get it too.
Smart Light Starter Kit with Google Assistant
The Google Smart Light is super reliable and convenient to use. I can control the lights with just one command that is perfect especially when I am busy with Josiah. I found it really helpful too when I am exhausted from events or work, and wished to relax as soon as I get home. I can quickly dim the lights for any reason without leaving the comforts of our bed or couch .
The Google Smart Light is super easy to install. All you have to do is plug in the Google Home Mini and assemble the GE C-Life light bulb. To complete the preparation, you have to download the Google Home App, for you to be able to set up the commands you will be using to control the lights.
The Google Smart Light is so affordable, where in fact, it is one of the lowest priced smart lighting product that you can find in the market. Would you believe that the whole starter kit will only cost you $55?
The highlight of the Google Smart light is you can control it with your voice. Dim the light without leaving the couch, turn off the light while lying comfortably in your bed. These are only a few of endless possibilities you can do with the Google Smart Light.
GE C-Life Light Bulb & Google Home Mini
Leaving the house? Worry no more. With Google Smart Light, you can set a schedule when the lights should turn on, and when to turn off. Effortless. It will follow the schedule no matter how long it is, as long as you let it be.
By scheduling your lights, the Google Smart Light will help your energy consumption lower than it used to be. For example, if you set your lights to turn off during 7 in the morning automatically, there will be a fix consumption of energy from your lights, unlike when turning it off manually. What if you wake up 12 in the afternoon, and just turned off the lights by the time you wake up. Imagine the 5 hours wasted because the lights were on.
Overall, the Google Smart Light Starter Kit is an excellent addition to your home especially if you want to control your lighting with your voice. It is helpful especially to busy parents out there who needs every help they can get too. I know, turning the lights on and off is such an easy task but a helping hand is always a great idea. Oh, and if you’re also in the market for some affordable stocking stuffer that actually has FUNCTION, then this is definitely that gift that will surely be welcomed and loved by all.

I love my google home mini. I haven’t bought any other pieces yet but I just might!
annickJanuary 3, 2019
i spent christmas with my boyfriend’s family and i thought it was magic that everything could be controlled by a home assistant! I now really want it for my own place
KarlaJanuary 4, 2019
We just got a few of the google minis. This would be great to have in the kid’s rooms so I can turn them off from my bed after they fall asleep and I get done reading.
Erica D ArdaliJanuary 4, 2019
I have a google home mini and she is my BFF. I love controlling everything from this one little speaker… also really great for music or listening to podcasts while I work
Jasmine HewittJanuary 4, 2019

Sincerely Miss JJanuary 4, 2019

Do you know that I know this? Just some of my friends showed it to me a short time ago and I find it both intelligent, useful and even captivating!
JoanJanuary 4, 2019
Love how cute and compact it is plus the power saving part is really great and efficient too.
Pinay OdysseyJanuary 4, 2019
Don’t we just all love how technology has evolved? Am not a very techy person, but that Google smart light sounds very convenient and interesting. We have lights at home we can control with our phones, but I’d like to try light that have sensors in them. So they turn on and off only when there are people in the room. Controlling with tye voice can also be an option. Thanks for sharing!
JessicaJanuary 4, 2019
Great review I especially like the voice commands and schedule your lights. One could schedule the lights to come on and off when away for security too
DaniJanuary 4, 2019
What an amazing piece of technology! I imagine this would be a very useful gadget for many families!
Jessica JoachimJanuary 4, 2019
This seems absolutely great! I am all about saving energy and money so this looks like it would be a perfect solution.

Thanks for the info. I’ve been wanting to transition to a smart home.
Lydia SmithJanuary 5, 2019
Google is the best innovation to have happened to us all. I also intend to purchase some of their smart devices and this going to be on my list. Imagine, having to control these devices with just my words. No finger. No movements. Ah. The luxury of laziness. I want.
Tara PittmanJanuary 5, 2019
My daughter has a voice-controlled light in the babies room. It sure does help her with the night time feedings
Summer Mitch RyanJanuary 5, 2019
What?! Is this available world-wide now? I want one or two. This is awesome!
A Infinite StepJanuary 5, 2019
Thats amazing product. WE have one at home and we also have Syska lights. Really helps current conservation. Children generally tend to run in and out of rooms with switching off and this app helps
IrinaJanuary 5, 2019
How much has technology changed in just a few years! I also remember feeling scared of turning off the light, I sleep with a night light now, but this kit sounds interesting.
KaylaJanuary 5, 2019
I cannot tell you ho many times my husband and I have gone back an forth on getting a smart house. We have the google home and love it. Did you know they even make a freaking coffee maker that you can have google start brewing for you???
Ola @ WanderWithOlaJanuary 5, 2019
Wow, I really need to get this. Controlling the lights with just one command is totally convenient (and awesome!)! Can’t believe that the whole starter kit will only cost $55.
JasmineJanuary 5, 2019
I loved reading your blog! Plus I want a google assistant sooo bad, but my boyfriend is totally against it. We were actually having a conversation about wishing we could just turn our lights off without talking so maybe he can get his wish and I can get mine! 😉
Stephanie | Adventures in AussielandJanuary 5, 2019
I definitely need to step it up with more of the smart technology. I think this is incredible. Being able to quickly walk into the house and tell it to turn the lights on sounds awesome.
AdaJanuary 6, 2019
I have heard good things about this! I’ll have to check it out.
Ruth IJanuary 6, 2019
Oh I need this! I am too lazy to stand and turn off the lights. haha! How cool that it’s possible to do this nowadays. Love it!

Mommy SigridJanuary 7, 2019
Everything is becoming more high-tech in the home. This is a nice touch, especially if you have young kids and you are just too tired to get up and adjust the lighting. Nice! 😀
