For those who wants to install smart lighting at home but do not want to change the switches, here is another smart option for you: replace your existing circular fluorescent ceiling lights with the Kyla Gen 2 Smart WiFi Ceiling Light with adjustable colour temperature (2700K – 6500K). It retails at S$99 with a limited time free installation worth S$80 when you order from kylaconnect.com and check-out using promo code SCLFIDMD. Read below for ordering instructions.
The Kyla Smart Ceiling Light is really simple to install: just drill 3 holes into the ceiling, screw the plate, join the wires, and you’re done.
The Kyla Ceiling Light frame is about 49cm in diameter, which is about the size of a 32W circular tube (400mm). It consumes 36W and emits 3600lm at 4000K cool white, exceeding the traditional fluorescent tubes. Now you can select the desired colour temperature and brightness based on the time of the day or your mood.
As you can see above, it is made up of 28 white and 32 warm LEDs, each with a transparent housing to increase diffusion. They are rated to last for 35,000 hours. The white plastic cover is secured by screw motion which is a lot easier than the wrap-clamp method that forces the cover into the metal frame, often causing the cover to crack under pressure.
To operate the light, install the Kyla Gen 2 app, follow the below pairing instructions, and then add to the app. There is no need for Smart Hub: the light connects to your home network router via 2.4GHz band.
To operate the light manually, just tap the icon to go into the control page. From there, you can manually adjust the light colour, brightness, set night light, set schedule and light modes.
You can also specify the timings of the various light modes, namely “Morning”, “Evening” and “Sleep”. With these modes, the light would gradually change intensity and colour during the defined timing.
As part of the Kyla Smart Home system, you can also select the Smart Ceiling Light as one of the automation tasks to trigger. In the example below, when a condition is met, you can select one of the actions or light modes. For instance, given different times of the day, you could trigger the Ceiling Light to turn on with different power modes.
In order for the Smart Ceiling Light to function, you have to keep the wall switch on at all times. Flicking the switch to off position puts the Ceiling Light offline from the app. Herein lies the inconvenience: to manually switch off the lights, you have to do it from the smartphone app.
One tip for you is to create “scenes” so that you can activate it with a single touch by adding them on your smartphone homescreen as widgets. If you have a smart speaker at home, you could simply say out the command to turn off the light without lifting a finger.
The Kyla Smart Ceiling Light is a fabulous replacement to your existing circular fluorescent tubes and easily enables your home with Smart Lighting. You can choose to operate it manually like a conventional light, or you can use the app to manage all the various lighting modes.
What’s great is that you can adjust the brightness level and the colour temperature, so you can save energy during the day and adjust the tone based on the activity – cool white for studies and warm white for watching TV. For those who needs to sleep with a bit of light on, the night light mode is so dim yet enough to visibly light the room, almost like candle-lit. After a certain time, it can auto-off to save electricity.
