What is the best smart home budget lighting solution that works on wifi (no hub) I need 3 bulbs (multi color), stripe lights and 2 wifi smart plugs to all work on the same iOS app. I am finding many on amazon but i am unsure they will all pair together on one iOS app. Any suggestions?I can link my findings so far. I may just roll the dice and see if i can rig them all to work together.Thanks,

    Sorry - I don't know anything about Apple products. All Android here.

    Pretty much any of these will have both android and ios apps. I've not installed these in my home, but I've researched them a little. I'd start by going in to a Home improvement store or lighting store where there are displays set up. Play with them and write down model numbers, etc. Then find what you like online.

    I use echo by Amazon. Lights, cameras, nest doorbell, nest thermostat. Echo view in the kitchen to get recipes when I need them and music when I don't.
