Brightest LED smart bulbs 2022: The best for dark spaces

When times get dark, we need bright light to see our way out – and the brightest LED smart bulbs make it that much better. With the extra control of a smart bulb, you can adjust your space to fit your needs perfectly whether you want as much light as possible or just enough to read. So whether you want a standard A19 E26 bulb or the BR30 for recessed lighting, there’s a bulb for you. The Feit Electric OM100 is our top pick for its incredibly high lumen rating and hubless smart controls, which means it only needs Wi-Fi and your phone to control.

Since this bulb does not require extra hardware such as a hub, this Wi-Fi-enabled smart LED bulb is simple to set up. It has a peak output of 1,600 lumens, making it the brightest LED smart bulb on the list, equal to a traditional 100W incandescent bulb – that’s some serious light. You’ll get a tunable white with a color temperature range from 2700K soft white to 6500K daylight and millions of RGB colors.
