Equipment and installation of the TP-Link LB120
No additional hardware or hub is required to set up the TP-Link LB120. Only an E27 socket and a functioning WLAN must be available. Once the smart LED bulb is in the socket, you can immediately download the Kasa App onto your tablet or smartphone.
During the first launch, the app will prompt you to create a TP Link account. You will need a password in addition to your email address. With this account you can control the smart LED light bulb even if you are not in the local WLAN. The bulb setup works almost by itself and is very simple.
When this process is finished, the smart LED restarts and automatically connects to your WLAN. Now he simply assigns her a name and an icon.
Features of the TP Link LB120
The TP-Link LB120 LED light bulbs have a brightness of 800 lumens, which is comparable to a previous 60 watt light bulb. The power consumption is only 11 watts. With the LEDs from TP-Link you can check your energy consumption. Without sacrificing quality or brightness, you achieve energy savings of around 80 percent. Compared to pure LED lamps without additional smart home technology, however, energy consumption increases by around 20 to 25 percent.
Practical is the integration of the LB120 into a 2.4 GHz WLAN. You don’t need an additional hub or a smart home center for this. The combination of the LED lamps to scenes in the Kasa-App is easily possible. Here they can be controlled together.
We also feel the compatibility to Amazon Alexa is perfect. This allows the TP-Link LB120 LEDs to be controlled via voice app. The LB120 LED lamps are a little more expensive than other LEDs. But you don’t need an additional hub or an extra Smart Home control center.
