    Why do smart lights have a lower life expectancy than conventional LED bulbs?

    "Hi Jenny I wouldn’t recommend smart lights as most of them breaker down over a short duration
    Not very reliable"

    "Smart lights and LED both share the same basic design. They both convert the AC current that feeds them into DC current, with both lights this produces excess heat build up which is dissipated through heat sinks in the unit.
    Now add in bluetooth and WiFi circuits into the same light and you have an excess of heat. This heat tends to shorten the life span of the units as with any bulb."

    "Another frequent reason for shortening the lifespan of an LED lamp is a too high ambient temperature. LED luminaires are generally designed in such a way that sufficient cooling surfaces are available. However, if the luminaire is mounted in a small corner, heat accumulation can occur."
