LIFX beam review
For years, I've liked the potential of smart lights. Like, they should be awesome but using your phone to turn on and off a light is a bit crap. You've got to be smart about how you use your smart light. Honestly, this review gets easier to understand as we go. I've been testing out the LIFX...
