For the more adventurous they can also be changed to more vibrant colours, with countless colours and shades to choose from you could spend hours simply picking a colour you love the most, only to find another minutes later. These lights can be purchased for main lights, lamps and even in light strips so you can light your home however you want to. All of these can be controlled by a mobile app that not only changes the colour, but allows you to turn them on and off without having to move. With a few extra add ons you can also get features such as motion sense, which is helpful if you are guilty of always forgetting to turn your lights off when you leave a room.
