Robot vacuums, smart watches, smart bulbs, home security, noise canceling headphones—it’s starting to feel like there’s nothing Wyze doesn’t make. Now it’s adding another new item to the list. Wyze just opened up pre-orders for its new $30 Smart Floor Lamp. But this one feels different.
Wyze says its smart floor lamp solves a problem that most floor lamps face: poor light dispersion. Poor light dispersion can make it hard to read, identify colors, and can lead to eye strain. To fix that, the Wyze Floor Lamp uses 15 groups of individual condenser lenses to direct light with a sharp
23° angle. It’s a task style lamp, with an flexible gooseneck setup.
It also comes with an “AI wireless Bluetooth” remote, though Wyze didn’t specify what the “AI” (artificial intelligence) part does exactly. Still, if you’ve ever fumbled under a lamp’s shade trying to find the on switch, a big round button probably sounds welcome. The button can cycle through 11 levels of brightness, and you can control the lamp with the Wyze app.
You can pre-order the Wyze Floor lamp today for $29.99 plus shipping, and it should go out in late May. We have a review unit on hand now, and will let you know what we think soon.
