Smart lighting isn’t just limited to turning your bulbs on and off from your phone or changing their colors by asking Alexa. With modern technology they can actually react to the media that you’re viewing, whether it be television or movies. And they aren’t just limited to passive experiences, either. 

With the best smart light bulbs, you can even soup up your gaming rig with lights that follow the rhythm and beats of your games, turning your entire room into a living visualizer. These are some of the top smart lights for gaming to consider.
