The Amazon Alexa is a smart home assistant with spectacular features, and lighting company Ledvance is getting in on the device's capabilities with the new Lightify bulbs. The smart light bulbs connect to Alexa, meaning that after syncing the bulbs up with the Alexa app, consumers can control them with voice commands.

The Lightify bulbs are far more than just gussied up versions of 'The Clapper.' They have precise power controls as a result of smart dimmers, so users can ask Alexa to dim or strengthen the intensity of the lighting by exact percentages. Further, Alexa knows which room is which in a house, so a user can ask the system to dim the kitchen lights only while the living room stays bright.

The Lightify bulbs come in standard A shape, as well as B-shaped bulbs for strings of lights and potlights for outdoor lighting.
